Malkin, making his return after missing four games due to a concussion, tied it 5:38 into the third period on a pretty breakaway. Crosby put Pittsburgh in front moments later with a slap shot from the slot that zipped past Anders Lindback and into the net.
Tampa Bay's Steven Stamkos scored twice to push his league-leading total to 17, but it wasn't enough to stop the Lightning's slide.
Maple Leafs 4, Devils 2
TORONTO (AP) — Nazem Kadri continued his points streak Monday with a goal and an assist against the struggling Devils.
Clarke MacArthur, Jay McClement and Phil Kessel — with his first goal on home ice this season — scored in the third period for Toronto. Kadri connected in the first period and assisted on MacArthur's goal to earn points in his fifth straight game.
The 22-year-old Kadri leads the Leafs with 23 points in 23 games.
James Reimer, making his first appearance at Air Canada Centre since Feb. 11 after a mild knee ligament strain, made 28 saves for the win.
Coyotes 5, Ducks 4, SO
Steve Sullivan also scored in the shootout for Phoenix, which has won three of four.
The teams traded four goals over a six-minute stretch of the third period.
