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.

  1. Marc Topkin's takeaways from Sunday's Rays-Orioles game

    The Heater

    RHP Chris Archer's primary problem Sunday, as in much of September, was a lack of slider command. When he can't throw it where he wants, and doesn't have the confidence in the changeup to throw it often, he can't win with just his fastball.

    MADEIRA BEACH — The kids lined up single file, snow cones in hand, a procession of sweaty, excited grade-schoolers watching Chasten Whitfield throw a cast net.

    Whitfield, a rising senior at Bradenton Manatee, demonstrates how to throw a cast net at the FishKids tournament in Madeira Beach. She also taught knot tying.

    LOUDON, N.H. — Kyle Busch saw little but billowing white smoke that engulfed the track and blinded enough drivers that it caused a tremendous wreck that notably altered the race running order.

    Kyle Busch celebrates with a burnout after his third victory of th e season that earns a berth in the second round of NASCAR’s playoffs. He also has some fun with Loudon the Lobster.
