NHL: Toronto 4, Pittsburgh 3

By

PITTSBURGH, Oct. 13 (UPI) -- Clarke MacArthur produced the tying and game-winning goals in the second period Wednesday, carrying the Toronto Maple Leafs to a 4-3 victory over Pittsburgh.

The Maple Leafs remained unbeaten three games deep in the season. Pittsburgh tried and failed for the third time to record its first win in its new arena. The lone Penguins victory thus far in the young campaign came at New Jersey.

Pittsburgh had a 2-1 lead heading into the second, but MacArthur delivered a power-play goal 3:01 into the period.

After Francois Beauchemin put the Maple Leafs in front with a slapshot, MacArthur scored again midway through the second. That goal became the winning one when Sidney Crosby tallied for the first time this season with 44 seconds left before the second intermission.

Crosby led the NHL last year with 51 goals.

Jonas Gustavsson, getting his first start of the season, blanked the Penguins over the final period and made 23 saves in the win. Marc-Andre Fleury faced only 14 shots, but let four of them get by him.
