Lightning Fall To Penguins 5-3

PITTSBURGH (AP) — Sidney Crosby had two goals and an assist to lead the Pittsburgh Penguins past the Tampa Bay Lightning 5-3 on Sunday night in their first game since NHL MVP Evgeni Malkin was injured.

Beau Bennett scored his first career goal on the power play to help Pittsburgh take over sole possession of first place in the Atlantic Division. Matt Cooke and defenseman Paul Martin each had a goal and an assist for the Penguins, who have won five of six to tie Montreal for the top spot in the Eastern Conference.

Malkin is out indefinitely after slamming back-first into the end boards during Friday night’s win over Florida. Malkin, whose head snapped back when he hit the boards, was re-evaluated over the weekend for a concussion.
