Crosby scores 2 3rd-period goals as Pittsburgh Penguins beat Chicago Blackhawks 4-1

PITTSBURGH, Pa. - Sidney Crosby had two goals in the final five minutes, helping the Pittsburgh Penguins to a 4-1 victory over the injury-riddled Chicago Blackhawks on Sunday night.

Already playing without Patrick Kane, the Blackhawks lost captain Jonathan Toews to an upper-body injury in the second period. Toews was hit hard by Penguins defenceman Brooks Orpik and was holding his left arm on the bench before heading down the runway.

James Neal and Lee Stempniak also scored for the Penguins, who won their second straight and snapped a three-game home losing streak.

Quote of the Day

I don't think it's really truly going to sink in until we drop the puck, to be honest. I know there's going to be a lot of smoke and mirrors with the media attention and all that. We came [Monday] and it was sort of a light day to get things organized. We just want to focus in on the business aspect, the game itself. That's what we're preparing to do. Get these next couple of days out of the way and it's game on.
