PITTSBURGH -- Sidney Crosby capped a third-period outburst with his 10th goal of the season, and the Pittsburgh Penguins beat the Anaheim Ducks 3-1 on Monday night.

Brian Gibbons scored on the first shot of his NHL career and Brandon Sutter chipped in his fourth goal of the season as Pittsburgh's struggling offense found a rhythm late against the Pacific Division-leading Ducks.

Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 26 shots for Pittsburgh, which won for only the second time in six games. Crosby's goal was just his second in 11 games (see full recap).

Flames down Jets in eighth round of shootout
WINNIPEG, Manitoba -- Sean Monahan scored the winning goal in the eighth round of a shootout and the Calgary Flames snapped their six-game losing streak with a 5-4 victory over the Winnipeg Jets on Monday night.

Jiri Hudler had given Calgary a 4-3 lead with 3:26 remaining in regulation, but the Jets tied it on Bryan Little's with six seconds left.

With Winnipeg goalie Al Montoya on the bench for an extra attacker, the Jets swarmed goalie Reto Berra, and Little put a rebound into an open side of the net (see full recap).

Bruins top Hurricanes behind quick start
RALEIGH, N.C. -- When the Boston Bruins take a two-goal lead, they can pretty much count on skating off with a win.

The Bruins surged ahead early against the Carolina Hurricanes and then relied on their penalty-killers to earn a 4-1 victory on Monday night.

Beginning with its 2010-11 Stanley Cup championship season, Boston is 100-6-6 in games it has taken a two-goal lead. It took the Bruins about 10 minutes to establish the margin against Carolina, which had won five of seven in the series (see full recap).
