NHL: Anaheim 3, Pittsburgh 2

ANAHEIM, Calif., Nov. 6 (UPI) -- Saku Koivu completed Anaheim's three-goal second period Friday and the Ducks survived Sidney Crosby's two scores to down Pittsburgh 3-2.

The Penguins lost their second in a row and fell below the breakeven mark thanks to a 7-minute surge of offense by Anaheim.


After Bobby Ryan broke a scoreless tie 7:35 into the second period, Ryan Getzlaf and Koivu produced goals to give Anaheim a 3-0 lead.

Crosby, who uncharacteristically took part in a fight in an attempt to fire up his teammates during a loss to Dallas this week, then scored twice to give the Penguins a chance.

Jonas Hiller shut the door the rest of the way and finished with 30 saves to get the win.

Pittsburgh's Marc-Andre Fleury allowed the three goals on 19 shots.
