NHL: Pittsburgh 3, Anaheim 1

Nov. 18, 2013 at 10:19 PM

PITTSBURGH, Nov. 18 (UPI) -- Brian Gibbons scored early in the third period, igniting a three-goal outburst that carried the Pittsburgh Penguins over Anaheim 3-1.

The game was scoreless through two periods before the Penguins finally broke through 3:52 into the final period.

On the play, Evegni Malkin skated around the perimeter of the Anaheim zone and fed a pass into the slot, where Gibbons sent a wrist shot past Viktor Fasth.

Gibbons assisted on Brandon Sutter's goal 1:02 later, doubling the Penguins' lead.

The Ducks' Ryan Getzlaff responded with a goal just 26 seconds after that, but Sidney Crosby notched his 10th of the season off a Malkin feed to restore the two-goal lead.

Marc-Andre Fleury made 27 saves for Pittsburgh.

Fasth finished with 24 saves as Anaheim completed a winless four-game road trip.
