Pens get shootout win over Canadiens

PITTSBURGH — Pascal Dupuis scored 13 seconds into the game after missing the past two games because of blood clot symptoms, David Perron and Sidney Crosby scored in the shootout, and the Penguins beat the league-leading Canadiens 4-3 Wednesday.

Marc-Andre Fleury stopped Alex Galchenyuk and David Desharnais in the shootout after Pittsburgh rallied from a 3-2 deficit in the third period. The Penguins made their first third-period comeback to win since January 2014.

Around the league: Canucks forward Alex Burrows will talk with league officials about the words he exchanged with Devils forward Jordin Tootoo during a game Sunday, Canada's Sportsnet reported. Tootoo accused Burrows of making disparaging remarks about his "personal life and family." Burrows said he didn't "cross the line." … Former Lightning coach Guy Boucher will leave his job as coach of SC Bern in Switzerland to return to North America, swisshockeynews.ch reported.
