Kings end Pens' win streak at 7

PITTSBURGH — Tyler Toffoli scored one minute into overtime and the Kings beat the Penguins 1-0 to stop Pittsburgh's winning streak at seven Friday.

The Kings have won three of four overall and four straight against the Penguins. Toffoli got his eighth goal, and Peter Budaj stopped 39 shots for his third shutout of the season.

Matt Murray made his fifth straight start and had 27 saves for the Penguins. Pittsburgh had won nine of 11.

Toffoli scored on a 3-on-1, taking a pass from defenseman Alec Martinez before skating to the top of the crease and lifting a wrist shot that beat Murray to the glove side.

Pittsburgh's Sidney Crosby ended his season-high, and NHL-best, nine-game point streak. Crosby, who leads the league with 21 goals, failed to score in consecutive games for the first time this season.

Game highlights: T.J. Oshie and Evgeny Kuznetsov scored in the shootout, and the Capitals won their sixth straight by beating the host Hurricanes 4-3. … David Schlemko, Patrick Marleau, Timo Meier and Melker Karlsson scored to chase Carey Price in the second period, and the Sharks beat the host Canadiens 4-2 for their fourth straight win. Price was pulled after conceding the four goals on 18 shots. Al Montoya made five saves in relief. … Rasmus Ristolainen scored 42 seconds into overtime and the host Sabres gave the Islanders their fourth straight loss, 3-2.
