Crosby hat trick rallies Pens, ties Marleau for goals lead

PITTSBURGH — Sidney Crosby scored three goals in slightly more than eight minutes of the second period as the Penguins turned a two-goal deficit into a two-goal lead and beat the Sabres 5-4 on Monday night.

Crosby tied Patrick Marleau of San Jose for the goals lead with 37 and gave Buffalo goalie Ryan Miller a pre-Olympics reminder of how he can take over. Miller could be in net for the United States against Crosby-led Canada on Feb. 21 in Vancouver.
