Mario Lemieux scored his NHL-leading 47th goal and had three assists as the Pittsburgh Penguins ended Chicago's unbeaten streak at nine games with a 6-3 win over the Blackhawks on Saturday in Pittsburgh.

The Blackhawks, playing without leading scorer Jeremy Roenick and enforcer Bob Probert, saw their 7-0-2 streak end with their first loss since Jan. 17. The Blackhawks had also won five in a row.
