Penguins 4, Blackhawks 1
Staal started the run by putting in a rebound. Cooke, one of the game's most notorious hitters, showed soft hands with a deflection of a backhand from Craig Adams to give the Penguins (2-0) the lead.
Michael Frolik scored in the second period for the Blackhawks (0-2).
Chicago starting goaltender Alexander Salak stopped all eight shots he faced before giving way to veteran Ray Emery, who allowed four goals on 19 shots.
