Crosby scores in OT, Penguins beat Red Wings 2-1

DETROIT (AP) Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin needed only 21 seconds to take advantage of an overtime penalty.

Crosby scored a power-play goal 1:33 into overtime to lift the Pittsburgh Penguins over the Detroit Red Wings 2-1 Friday night. Crosby scored by redirecting a slap pass from Malkin past goalie Jimmy Howard. Pittsburgh was on the power play after Detroit's Luke Glendening took Jared McCann down away from the play and was called for interference.

"I don't think 4-on-3s are super, super dangerous lots of times, but when Crosby's around the net, it gets way more dangerous, because that's the one guy that you kind of at times leave to the goalie," Red Wings coach Jeff Blashill said. "You've got Malkin looking like he's going to shoot, so you've got to honor the shot, and there's just no way to get over there."
