PITTSBURGH - The red-hot Pittsburgh Penguins will try to push their season-best winning streak to seven games when they host the Calgary Flames in Saturdays matinee clash at CONSOL Energy Center. SWell Marble Bottle Uk . Pittsburgh has won six in a row and 11 of its last 12 games to open a big lead atop the Metropolitan Division. With 53 points, the Penguins are 12 points ahead of Washington for the divisions top spot and Pittsburgh also is five points in front of Boston for the Eastern Conference lead. Despite battling a rash of injuries, the Pens posted their two most recent wins on back-to-back nights, beating the New York Rangers on the road in a 4-3 shootout on Wednesday before downing the visiting Minnesota Wild by a 5-2 score on Thursday. The decisive victory over the Wild was the ninth straight win on home ice for the Pens, who are off to a stellar 16-3-0 mark as the host this season. If history is any indication, Pittsburgh has a good chance to make it 10 straight home wins this afternoon. The Pens are 12-1-0 with two ties in their last 15 home games against the Flames, and Calgary has lost eight of 10 overall in this series. Pittsburgh is currently dealing with injuries to star forward Evgeni Malkin and defensemen Kris Letang, Paul Martin, Brooks Orpik and Rob Scuderi. With their top-four blueliners out of the lineup on Thursday, rookie defenseman Olli Maatta took charge in the win over Minnesota. Maatta scored a key short-handed goal on a penalty shot and collected one assist, helping the Penguins post a 5-2 decision over the Wild. A first-round pick (22nd overall) in the 2012 draft, the 19-year-old Maatta has three goals and eight assists in 37 games this season. The Finnish prospect has done most of his damage recently, notching seven points (2 goals, 5 assists) over his last 10 outings. Maatta became only the second defenseman in Penguins history to score on a penalty shot after he was hooked on a breakaway by Minnesotas Jonas Brodin at 7:54 of the third period. He came in wide from the right side and snapped a wrister that trickled across the goal line to give Pittsburgh a 5-2 lead. "Ive tried that move in practice a few times. Its the only move I have," Maatta said. "I thought (Wild goaltender Niklas Backstrom) got it at first. Then I saw it go in so I was pretty excited." Chris Kunitz had two goals for the Penguins, while Jeff Zatkoff made 24 saves for the win. Malkin is questionable for todays game, while Letang, Martin, Orpik and Scuderi are out. While Pittsburgh aims for its 10th straight home win on Saturday, the Flames will try to halt a three-game road slide. Calgary began a five-game road trip with last Saturdays overtime win in Buffalo, but Bob Hartleys club has gone 0-1-2 since. The Flames played Thursday evening in Detroit and was dealt a 3-2 overtime loss by the Red Wings, who won after Daniel Alfredsson scored his second goal of the game just 63 seconds into the extra session. Detroit got a power play when Calgary defenseman TJ Brodie was whistled for hooking with 42 seconds left in regulation. On the ensuing power play, Pavel Datsyuk fed Alfredsson for a one-timer in the slot and the veteran ripped the shot past Karri Ramo. Mikael Backlund and Mark Giordano both scored for Calgary. Ramo stopped 35 shots in defeat. After closing its road trip on Saturday, Calgary will play its next five games at the Saddledome, beginning with Mondays game against St. Louis. The Flames are 7-9-3 as the guest this season and 6-7-3 at home. Swell Bottle Uk Stockist . Sami Vatanen had a goal and an assist and Anaheim used a four-goal first period to extend their winning streak to six games with a 5-2 win over the Detroit Red Wings on Tuesday night. Swell Bottle Green Jasper . A little more than one year after missing a last-second tip-in that would have given the Wolverines a share of the Big Ten regular-season title, the 6-foot-8 forward scored on a layup with 7. . For Bergevin, the best pick is the 30th — which traditionally goes to the Stanley Cup winner. "Thats our goal.BUENOS AIRES, Argentina -- Riot police used tear gas and rubber bullets to disperse a group of rock-throwing vandals who disturbed a rally by Argentines celebrating their teams gutsy performance in a 1-0 loss to Germany in the World Cup finals. Thousands of Argentines, saddened but proud, had gathered peacefully at the iconic Obelisk in downtown Buenos Aires to applaud their teams best World Cup performance in 24 years. Police initially remained on the sidelines as fans poured into downtown Buenos Aires. But late Sunday night they began chasing down vandals. The youths, many of them with their faces covered and drinking heavily, responded by hurling rocks, destroying store fronts, tearing down street lights and even breaking into a theatre. Parents with small children could be seen fleeing in fear. National security secretary Sergio Berni said that 120 people were arrested. The Buenos Aires emergency medical service reported on Monday that 70 people were treated for injuries, including 15 police officers. The chaotic situation marred what was an otherwise spontaneous show of support for Argentinas national team. The centre of festivities was the Obelisk, where fans traditionally gather to celebrate victory, not defeat. Cars honked staccato rhythms, firecrackers were tossed into the air and fans of all ages jumped in place shouting "Argentina! Argentina! Argentina!" "We have nothing to regret, we played first rate," said 53-year-old Horacio Laseiras, carrying his six-year-old daughter on his shoulders. The two-time world champion entered the title match as the clear underdog after Germanys 7-1 thrashing of host Brazil. But despite complaints about lacklustre play earlier in the tournament, the team led by captain Lionel Messi showed grit throughout the match, creating several opportunities to score in the first 90 minutes. Amid the outpouring of gratitude, there was a hint of frustration that Messi, the four-time world player of the year, didnt turn in a stronger performance. "Messi still isnt Maradona," said 31-yeear-old Eduardo Rodriguez, referring to Diego Maradona, who lifted the championship trophy for Argentina in 1986 and led the albiceleste to its last World Cup final, also against Germany, in 1990.

In Argentinas capital, about 20,000 people dressed in the blue and white colours of the countrys flag filled the capitals Plaza San Martin to watch the match on a giant screen, climbing atop lamp posts to get a better view. "I feel an enormous sadness," Soledad Canelas, 19, said after the game. "I had the illusion of seeing Argentina become champion for the first time in my life." The shot at the title united Argentines otherwise exasperated by one of the worlds highest inflation rates, an encroaching debt crisis and a corruption scandal that has penetrated deep into President Cristina Fernandezs inner circle. Fernandez, whose approval rating has plunged in recent months, kept a low profile during the tournament. She declined an invitation to attend the final, preferring instead to rest ahead of a summit Tuesday, also in Brazil, with leaders from Brazil, Russia, India and China. She didnt comment on the teams loss but local media reported she had called head coach Alejandro Sabella to offer her support and is planning to welcome the team home on Monday morning. Despite the pride over their teams performance, many Argentines couldnt hide the pain. In Rio de Janeiro, more than 70,000 Argentina fans cheered on their team, many having travelled upward of 40 hours by car and seemingly all wearing their teams sky-blue jerseys and chanting day and night. "This was a trauma. We were going to be able to leave singing songs in victory with the glory of the Cup," said Joao Cuenca, who has an Argentine father and a Brazilian mother. "What happened is nothing short of a disaster." ---- AP Writers Joshua Goodman in Bogota, Colombia, Debora Rey in Buenos Aires and Jenny Barchfield in Rio de Janeiro, contributed to this report.
