Crosby caps first-period outburst, Pens defeat Rangers 5-1

PITTSBURGH (AP) Pittsburgh allowed an early three-goal lead to slip away in a loss to Philadelphia earlier in the week. The Penguins didn't make the same mistake Sunday against the New York Rangers.

Sidney Crosby capped Pittsburgh's three-goal outburst in the first period, and the Penguins beat the Rangers 5-1.

Crosby scored his eighth of the season, Kasperi Kapanen netted his sixth, and John Marino his first as Pittsburgh scored three goals on six shots in the opening period.
