PITTSBURGH, Pa. - Sidney Crosby and David Perron scored in the shootout to help the Pittsburgh Penguins defeat the Montreal Canadiens 4-3 on Wednesday night.

Perron, the first Pittsburgh shooter, connected on his backhand before Crosby clinched it. The two-time MVP made a series of quick dekes before putting a backhand shot over Mike Condon's glove.

Marc-Andre Fleury stopped Alex Galchenyuk and David Desharnais in the shootout after Pittsburgh rallied from a 3-2 deficit in the third period. Fleury, who made 32 saves, left briefly in the first after taking an inadvertent stick to the mask from Penguins teammate Ben Lovejoy.
