Penguins score 4 in 1st, beat Blackhawks 5-2 in home opener

PITTSBURGH (AP) The Pittsburgh Penguins are doing just fine so far without injured stars Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin.

Drew O'Connor scored his first NHL goal, Danton Heinen got his third in three games and Pittsburgh tallied four times in the first period to beat the Chicago Blackhawks 5-2 in its home opener Saturday night.

With the victory, Penguins coach Mike Sullivan surpassed Dan Bylsma for most regular-season wins in franchise history.
