UNDATED (AP) — Brenden Morrow scored two goals for the second straight game and the Pittsburgh Penguins beat the Montreal Canadiens 6-4 to move closer to clinching the top seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs.

Brandon Sutter added two goals for Pittsburgh, and newly acquired Jarome Iginla (juh-ROHM’ ih-GIHN’-luh) and Doug Murray also scored for the Penguins, who had little trouble with the Canadiens despite playing without injured stars Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin.

Marc-Andre Fleury (marhk-ahn-dray FLOOR’-ee) stopped 31 shots and Pittsburgh dominated in racing to a quick 4-0 lead over the Habs, who’ve lost three straight.

In other NHL action:

__ Steve Begin (BAY’-gihn) scored two goals in the third period, and the Calgary Flames held on to hand the playoff-hopeful Detroit Red Wings a 3-2 loss.

— Fedor Tyutin (FEH’-duhr T’YOO’-tihn) scored 2:19 into overtime, and the Columbus Blue Jackets moved into eighth place in the Western Conference with a 3-2 victory over the Anaheim Ducks.
