Recap: Winnipeg vs. Pittsburgh

Winnipeg, MB (SportsNetwork.com) - The Pittsburgh Penguins clinched the Metropolitan Division during their game against the Winnipeg Jets on Thursday night.

As a bit of icing on the cake, they won the game, too.

Beau Bennett, Craig Adams, Paul Martin and Brian Gibbons scored as the Penguins beat the Jets, 4-2, for their third win in four games.

Marc-Andre Fleury had 13 saves and the Penguins scored three unanswered goals to end the game. They wrapped up the division title when Columbus beat Philadelphia in a game that started an hour earlier.

"We didn't give up a lot and I certainly liked that about our team," Pittsburgh head coach Dan Bylsma stated. "The defensive side of the puck we were real good."

The Penguins have won four in a row against the Jets and 19 of the last 22 meetings between the franchises.

Olli Jokinen and Zach Redmond scored for the Jets, while Ondrej Pavelec gave up four goals on 21 shots.

"We missed the net 18 times. That, to me, was the difference," Winnipeg head coach Paul Maurice said. "We didn't get enough pucks to the net or on the net and create some of the chaos that we needed to create."

Adams tied the game at 2-2 on a one-timer from the right circle with 1:13 left in the second period, and Martin and Gibbons sealed the win with goals in the third period.

Martin's power-play goal also came on a one-timer, this one in the slot 7:42 into the third period. Gibbons beat Pavelec with a wrister around nine minutes later.

Sidney Crosby had two assists, the first one on Bennett's goal 12:44 into the game. The Blue Jackets took a 2-1 lead in the first 9:42 of the second period on goals by Jokinen and Redmond less than seven minutes apart.
