Penguins stay hot, drop Oilers 3-2

PITTSBURGH (AP) - Evgeni Malkin's power-play goal 7:20 into the third period put the Pittsburgh Penguins in front for good and the Penguins stayed hot at home with a 3-2 win over the Edmonton Oilers on Tuesday night.

Pascal Dupuis and Chris Kunitz also scored for Pittsburgh. Sidney Crosby assisted on all three Penguin goals to vault him into the NHL scoring lead. Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 20 shots for Pittsburgh to improve to 5-0 on the season.

Ales Hemsky and Jordan Eberle scored for Edmonton. Jason Labarbera made 25 saves, but struggled with puck control as the Oilers dropped their fourth straight.

Edmonton twice battled back to tie it but had no answer after Malkin's second goal of the season. Crosby earned the secondary assist on the score and has points in each of Pittsburgh's first six games.
