WINNIPEG, Canada — Dan Quinn scored two goals as the Pittsburgh Penguins broke a four-game losing streak by beating the Winnipeg Jets, 5-1, Friday night.

Mario Lemieux collected his league-leading 67th goal in the third period; Paul Coffey had his 250th career goal and two assists, and Troy Loney also scored.

Dale Hawerchuk spoiled Tom Barrasso's shutout bid with an unassisted goal midway through the third period as the Jets lost their fifth game in a row.

The win pulled Pittsburgh within one point of Washington and the New York Rangers, who share the Patrick Division lead.
