Penguins rally past Maple Leafs 6-5 in shootout

Posted: Updated:

PITTSBURGH (AP) - Evgeni Malkin picked up his first two-goal game in more than 18 months and added the game-winner in the shootout and the Pittsburgh Penguins rallied past the Toronto Maple Leafs 6-5 on Wednesday night.

Chris Conner, Kris Letang and James Neal also scored for Pittsburgh, which erased 4-1 and 5-3 deficits. Sidney Crosby added two assists to lift his point total to a league-leading 33 and scored in the second round of the shootout against Jonathan Bernier before Malkin finished it off.

Jeff Zatkoff stopped 11 of 13 shots after replacing ineffective starter Marc-Andre Fleury less than a minute into the second period.

James van Riemsdyk scored twice and added an assist for the Maple Leafs. Phil Kessel, Tyler Bozak and Nazem Kadri also scored for Toronto, but the Maple Leafs lost their way after taking a big lead.
