Crosby's winner spurs Pens

PITTSBURGH — Sidney Crosby's 19th goal of the season broke a tie with 6:03 left as the Penguins edged the Maple Leafs 3-1 on Monday night.

Crosby took a centering pass from Pascal Dupuis and beat Jonathan Bernier to the stick side to boost his point total to a league-leading 47.

Chris Conner and Brandon Sutter also scored for Pittsburgh, which was without injured forward Evgeni Malkin.

"We keep finding ways," Crosby said. "A lot has to do with the way the (new guys) are playing."

Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 25 shots to improve to 27-3 in his past 30 home starts. Pittsburgh has won four straight and nine of 10.

Morgan Rielly scored the first goal of his career for Toronto.

Game highlights: Cody Ceci's first NHL goal, a wrist shot that beat Brian Elliott 3:59 into overtime, pushed the host Senators past the Blues 3-2.

Around the league: Bruins forward Shawn Thornton will appeal his 15-game ban for punching and injuring unsuspecting Penguins defenseman Brooks Orpik. Commissioner Gary Bettman will hear the appeal first. … The league suspended Oilers defenseman Corey Potter for two games for boarding Ducks forward Nick Bonino on Sunday.
