NHL Scores, Maple Leafs Vs. Penguins: Sidney Crosby Scores Two More; Pens May Win Forever

The Penguins defeated the Toronto Maple Leafs 5-2 today, meaning that come tomorrow they will not have lost in regulation for a full month. They’re now on the second-longest winning streak in franchise history, the longest since 1993, when the Pens set an NHL record by winning 17 games in a row.

Sidney Crosby’s two-goal game ran his points streak to 17 consecutive games. It was also Crosby’s fourth multi-goal game in his last six. His first goal Wednesday night came on a rebound of a shot by Chris Kunitz. The second came on a one-timer from Kunitz. (With three assists, Kunitz picked up the first star of the game.)

The Pens also picked up goals from Pascal Dupuis (who scored shorthanded on a complete breakdown by the Maple Leafs) and Mark Letestu, who scored twice. Goalie Marc-Andre Fleury continued to roll, picking up 23 saves. Both Maple Leafs goals came in a penalty-filled third period; one was on a power play.
