Sidney Crosby scored on a tip-in during an overtime power
play, and the visiting Pittsburgh Penguins edged the Detroit Red
Wings 2-1 on Tuesday.
Crosby redirected an Evgeni Malkin shot for his third goal in as
many games. Bryan Rust had a goal and an assist for the Penguins,
and Matt Murray made 28 saves. Malkin was credited with a team-high
six shots and assisted on both goals.
Pittsburgh bounced back from a 4-1 loss at Boston on Thursday in
which it was silenced after Crosby scored in the first minute. The
Penguins earned their fifth win in six games Friday.
Jimmy Howard stopped 35 shots for Detroit, and rookie Filip Zadina
had the Red Wings' lone goal.
Lightning 7, Jets 1
Anthony Cirelli collected his first career hat trick, and Nikita
Kucherov scored twice to lead visiting Tampa Bay to a one-sided win
Goaltender Andrei Vasilevskiy made 30 saves to claim his 10th
consecutive win for Tampa Bay, while Ondrej Palat collected three
assists and Brayden Point and Steven Stamkos had two-point games.
The win came at a cost for the Lightning, though. Forward Cedric
Paquette left in the second period after appearing to injure his
Jack Roslovic scored for the Jets, who pulled Connor Hellebuyck
after he allowed five goals on 12 shots. Laurent Brossoit entered
and saved 12 of the 14 shots he faced.
