Petr Mrazek finished with 24 saves and the Red Wings beat one of the top teams in the Eastern Conference for the second straight day, knocking off the defending champion Penguins 5-2 on Sunday in Pittsburgh.

Head coach Patrick Chambers has posted a 23-67 overall conference record in his five seasons, one of the worst marks among Power 5 schools. Only TCU, Boston College, Texas Tech and Virginia Tech have a lower in-conference winning percentage than Penn State's .256 mark during that span.
