Penguins Vs. Rangers: Sidney Crosby Notches Assist In 10th Straight Pittsburgh Win

Sidney Crosby notched an assist on Chris Kunitz's third period goal and Kris Letang put in 19:06 worth of work as the Pittsburgh Penguins won their 10th straight game — this one a huge victory over the New York Rangers. The 5-2 win moves Pittsburgh within four points -- with one game in hand, too -- of the Rangers for first place in the Atlantic Division and the Eastern Conference.

Crosby and Letang were big parts of the win, but it was a full team effort for Pittsburgh. Matt Cooke scored two goals and Evgeni Malkin notched a goal and an assist in carrying the Pens to victory. Marc-Andre Fleury made 29 saves and turned the calendar on a full month without a loss. His last defeat came on Feb. 15.

Here's a look at Crosby's helper, via NHL.com:

The Penguins are back in action Saturday against the New Jersey Devils. New York hosts the Colorado Avalanche on Saturday evening.
