Last night's Penguin game had a lot to smile about, even though it came at the expense of a 6-10-3 Anaheim team, and this heavyweight bout between Bill Guerin and Ryan Getzlaf will rank near the top of the highlight reel of the 5-2 victory.

Guerin scored his fifth goal of the season, Matt Cooke lit the lamp twice (hey, empty netters count!), Jordan Staal scored shorthanded, and Martin Skoula found the back of the net for the first time, sending 17,052 home happy. Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 23 of 25 shots to improve to 11-6 on the year, winning his first in his last five games.

Guerin's goal ended an unfathomable eight-game streak without a power play goal for the Pens, who went 1-for-7 with the advantage on the evening. The Penguins had been 0 for their last 30 during the slide. With the fight and goal, Guerin finished just one assist shy of the coveted Gordie Howe Hat Trick.

The 14-7-0 Penguins resume play Thursday at home against 8-6-3 Ottawa.
