Penguins erupt with 3 in 3rd, slip by Ducks 3-1

Posted: Updated:

PITTSBURGH (AP) - Sidney Crosby capped a third-period outburst with his 10th goal of the season, and the Pittsburgh Penguins beat the Anaheim Ducks 3-1 on Monday night.

Brian Gibbons scored on the first shot of his NHL career and Brandon Sutter chipped in his fourth goal of the season as Pittsburgh's struggling offense found a rhythm late against the Pacific Division-leading Ducks.

Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 26 shots for Pittsburgh, which won for only the second time in six games. Crosby's goal was just his second in 11 games.

Ryan Getzlaf scored his 11th goal for the Ducks, who earned just one point during a four-game East Coast road trip. Viktor Fasth made 24 saves but struggled in the final 20 minutes.

Gibbons took a slick backhand pass from Evgeni Malkin to break a scoreless tie 3:56 into the third.
