O'Connor, Pettersson help Penguins rout Maple Leafs 7-1

PITTSBURGH (AP) The Pittsburgh Penguins were missing several key regulars, but they didn't have any problem with a high-powered Toronto team stuck in an early slump.

Drew O'Connor scored twice, his first career two-goal game, and the Penguins routed the Maple Leafs 7-1 on Saturday night.

O'Connor, who is tied for the NHL scoring lead among rookies, got his second and third goals of the season. Marcus Pettersson also scored and added two assists for a career-high three points. The Penguins, playing without five of their best players, including Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin and Kris Letang, broke a 1-all tie with a four-goal second period.
