Sidney Crosby scores 2 goals and Penguins top Stars 5-1

PITTSBURGH, Pa. - Sidney Crosby scored his 32nd and 33rd goals of the season and picked up an assist and Pittsburgh's top line led the way in a 5-1 victory over Dallas on Tuesday night.

Lee Stempniak added his first goal since being acquired from Calgary two weeks ago and finished with two assists while Chris Kunitz had a goal and an assist in his return from a lower body injury. Brandon Sutter scored a late short-handed goal and Jeff Zatkoff stopped 32 shots to win for the 11th time in his past 14 games.

The Penguins were humbled in a home and home sweep by Philadelphia over the weekend, but bounced back behind their captain.

Tyler Seguin scored his 31st goal for the Stars. Kari Lehtonen made 27 saves, but Dallas slumped again on the road.
