PITTSBURGH - Sidney Crosby scored for a career-high seventh consecutive game and finished with four points to help the Pittsburgh Penguins to a 6-2 win against the Anaheim Ducks at Consol Energy Center on Monday. 

With the Penguins leading 3-1 late in the second period, Ducks captain Ryan Getzlaf attempted a pass from the offensive blue line that hit Crosby's leg and bounced toward center ice. Crosby corralled the puck, leading to a breakaway where he slid a snap shot through goalie John Gibson's five-hole with 4:59 remaining in the second.
