WASHINGTON (AP) — The Pittsburgh Penguins beat the Washington Capitals 4-1 to end their seven-game losing streak. Pittsburgh finished the game down two defensemen because of injuries. Forward Jeff Carter even skated a shift out of position in the third period when another defenseman left the ice. The Penguins scored two soft goals on Darcy Kuemper to win for the first time since Oct. 22. The skid was the organization’s longest since losing 10 in a row in 2006 during Sidney Crosby’s rookie season. The Capitals lost for the sixth time in eight games.
