PITTSBURGH (AP) -Petr Sykora and Kris Letang each had two goals, and Sidney Crosby got back into action with a goal and two assists in the Pittsburgh Penguins' 6-2 victory over the New York Rangers on Wednesday night.

Jordan Staal added a goal and an assist for the Penguins, who weren't sure if Crosby would play until the morning skate. He missed last weekend's All-Star game because of a sore knee. Pittsburgh scored five goals in the third period against All-Star goalie Henrik Lundqvist to break open a 1-1 game.

NHL scoring leader Evgeni Malkin added two assists, and Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 32 shots for Pittsburgh, which also beat the Rangers at home on Jan. 18.

Nikolai Zherdev and Marc Staal scored for the Rangers, 5-2-1 in their past eight games. New York's other regulation loss in that span was the 3-0 defeat in Pittsburgh 10 days earlier.

CALGARY, Alberta (AP) - Michael Cammalleri stayed hot through the All-Star break and scored three more goals to lift Calgary over Buffalo.

Cammalleri has scored eight times during a four-game goal streak, giving him 25 overall and moving him past Jarome Iginla for the team lead. He has 11 goals and two assists during a seven-game point streak.

Todd Bertuzzi and Dion Phaneuf also scored for the Flames, who have won six of eight overall and nine of 10 at home.

Drew Stafford and Tim Connolly scored for Buffalo, 2-2 during a season-high six-game road swing. The Sabres won 10-2 at Edmonton on Tuesday.
