This is an archived article that was published on sltrib.com in 2013, and information in the article may be outdated. It is provided only for personal research purposes and may not be reprinted.

Pittsburgh • Sidney Crosby's 19th goal of the season broke a tie with just over 6 minutes remaining and the Pittsburgh Penguins edged the Toronto Maple Leafs 3-1 on Monday night.

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

Chris Conner and Brandon Sutter also scored for the Penguins, who were playing without a number of regulars, including forward Evgeni Malkin.

Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 25 shots for Pittsburgh 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 the Maple Leafs. Bernier made 28 saves, but couldn't stop Toronto from losing for the fourth time in its past five games.

The Penguins have a firm grip on the top of the Metropolitan Division despite an injured reserve list that seems to be growing by the day.

Kris Letang joined fellow defenseman Brooks Orpik (concussion), Paul Martin (broken leg) and Rob Scuderi (broken ankle) on the IR Monday with an upper-body injury. EASTERN CONFERENCE
