NHL Roundup: Crosby, Penguins Crush Coyotes

Article excerpt

Sidney Crosby left briefly after taking a stick to the face, then returned and picked up his NHL-leading 21st goal as the host Pittsburgh Penguins crushed the Arizona Coyotes 7-0 on Monday night.

Bryan Rust, Scott Wilson, Trevor Daley, Phil Kessel, Nick Bonino and Justin Schultz also scored for the Penguins, who won their season-high sixth straight by throttling the struggling Coyotes to celebrate coach Mike Sullivan's first-year on the job in style. Matt Murray finished with 32 saves while picking up his third career shutout.

Arizona's Mike Smith, the lone bright spot for a team with the fewest victories in the league, stopped 18 of 22 shots before being pulled midway through the second period. The Coyotes are 1-4-3 in their last eight games.
