Crosby's tear leads Penguins to 11th straight

PITTSBURGH — Sidney Crosby scored twice during his fourth multiple-goal game in his past six, and the Penguins won their 11th game in a row, beating the Maple Leafs 5-2 Wednesday.

The Penguins, 12-0-1 since last losing in regulation Nov. 10, are on the second-longest winning streak in franchise history. Their only longer run was their NHL-record 17-game streak in 1993.

Crosby has 20 goals and 15 assists during a 17-game scoring streak that is two shy of his career best.

"As a group, we want to keep going and individually, (I) want to keep going," Crosby said.

Around the league: Vic Lynn, the three-time Stanley Cup winner with the Maple Leafs who played for all of the NHL's Original Six teams, died Monday in his hometown of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. He was 85. … Jere Lehtinen, 37, officially retired, ending a 14-season career spent entirely with the Stars.
