PITTSBURGH, Nov. 27 (UPI) -- Sidney Crosby
scored a hat trick Saturday and the Pittsburgh Penguins rolled to their sixth straight win, 4-1 over Calgary.
Crosby scored goals Nos. 16, 17 and 18 -- the last one into an empty net -- and stretched his points streak to 12 straight games, during which he has notched 12 goals and 13 assists.
Arron Asham also scored, Kris Letang racked up three assists and Brent Johnson finished the game with 30 saves for the Pens.
Miikka Kiprusoff did everything he could to help the Flames, including stopping all 24 shots he faced in the first period -- one of them on a Crosby penalty shot. But it wasn't enough and the Flames' netminder took the loss, turning aside 39-of-42 shots.
Rene Bourque got Calgary's lone goal.
