Sidney Crosby had a goal and three assists as Pittsburgh embarrassed Toronto 5-2 at PPG Paints Arena on Tuesday. The lacklustre Leafs had no answers for the Penguins’ potent offense in sustaining one of their worst defeats on the year.
- With Toronto having given up the first five goals of the game, Auston Matthews and Kyle Clifford scored late second period goals 86 seconds apart. Matthews took over the NHL goal scoring lead with his 43rd goal of the season.
- Frederik Andersen couldn’t be faulted on any of the Penguins’ first four goals, but the goalie’s giveaway in the second period created Pittsburgh fifth tally, by Teddy Blueger.
