Blues Slow Down Penguins, Grab Overtime Win
PITTSBURGH (AP) -- Alex Pietrangelo beat Marc-Andre Fleury with less than a minute to go in overtime to lift the St. Louis Blues past the Pittsburgh Penguins 3-2 on Wednesday night.
Sidney Crosby went scoreless in his second game back from concussion-related symptoms as the Blues won despite blowing a pair of one-goal leads.
Scott Nichol and Jamie Langenbrunner also scored for the Blues. Brian Elliott stopped 31 shots. James Neal scored his 13th goal of the season for Pittsburgh and Steve Sullivan collected his third. Fleury made 40 saves for the Penguins, but Pittsburgh failed to play with the electricity that highlighted Crosby's season-debut in a win over the New York Islanders on Monday.
Crosby played more than 18 minutes and spent an additional six in the penalty box.
