Continuing their impressive form the New Zealand men's hockey team coasted to a 5-2 victory over Argentina to make it two from two at the Sultan Azlan Cup in Malaysia Friday night.

Dominating the second session of the encounter, the Black Sticks ran over the Argentina defence after the two teams were 2-2 until the 57th minute.

The victory gives New Zealand the maximum six points from two outings, having outplayed five-time champions India 5-1 in the first outing on Thursday.

The Black Sticks meet Pakistan on Sunday.
