Bennett scores in SO to lift Penguins to 4-3 win over Blackhawks

CHICAGO - Beau Bennet scored the lone goal in the shootout, and the Pittsburgh Penguins rebounded after giving up a two-goal lead to beat the Chicago Blackhawks 4-3 Thursday night.

Sidney Crosby, Derrick Pouliot and Joe Vitale scored in regulation for Pittsburgh (1-1-1).

Chicago's Brandon Bollig shovelled in a rebound from a scrum in front of the net with 6:53 left in the third to tie it at 3 and send it to overtime. Patrick Sharp and Ben Smith both scored for the second straight game for the Blackhawks (1-1-0).

Crosby, whose career has been punctuated by games lost to concussions, was struck by the stick of Chicago's Adam Clendening in the final minute of overtime and dropped to the ice. He got up slowly, then skated to the bench on his own.

Crosby was Pittburgh's second shooter in the shootout and missed on a backhand attempt.

Quote of the Day

I feel that responsibility, I've felt it for the last two years. We core guys get a lot of minutes, we get a lot of opportunity out there. Our teammates, the organization and fans look to us to be the guys to put the puck in the net and to create momentum out there.
