TORONTO (AP) — Pascal Dupuis netted two goals, and Sidney Crosby reclaimed sole possession of the NHL scoring lead with an assist in the Pittsburgh Penguins’ 2-1 win over the Toronto Maple Leafs on Friday night.
The Penguins (11-3-1) bounced back from a 5-0 loss at the New York Rangers on Tuesday and killed all six Maple Leafs power plays. Toronto scored three man-advantage goals in a win over Boston on Wednesday.
Cody Franson scored a third-period goal for Toronto (9-6-2), which will visit Buffalo on Saturday. Jonathan Bernier was solid in stopping 39 Pittsburgh shots.
Penguins backup Thomas Greiss made 30 saves, including 13 in the third period. Pittsburgh will host the Rangers on Saturday.
This was a better showing for the Maple Leafs than the first visit by the Penguins, a 5-2 loss on Oct. 11.
