(NHL) Crosby lifts Penguins past Capitals
(03-11 16:36)

Sidney Crosby had a hand in both early goals and Chris Kunitz scored twice as the Pittsburgh Penguins beat Alex Ovechkin's struggling Washington Capitals 3-2 Monday.
Crosby finished with his 30th goal and two assists to raise his NHL-leading point total to 87, matching his uniform number. The Penguins beat Washington for the seventh consecutive time and overtook idle Boston for the Eastern Conference's best record.
The Capitals, who began the day outside of the playoff picture in 10th place in the East, have lost four of their past five games.
The teams play each other again Tuesday at Pittsburgh.
Monday's game featured the largely uneventful NHL debut of a player Capitals general manager George McPhee likened to the Loch Ness Monster-- "We've heard of you, but we haven't seen you'' -- Russian forward Evgeny Kuznetsov. The 6-foot-3, 200-pound winger was a first-round draft pick in 2010, but has been playing in Russia until now. --AP
