Crosby scores 2 to finish with 51; Pens win in OT
Pittsburgh Penguins 6, New York Islanders 5
UNIONDALE, N.Y. (AP)—Sidney Crosby(notes) finished the regular season with a flourish, scoring twice to reach 50 goals for the first time and adding three assists that helped the Pittsburgh Penguins beat the New York Islanders 6-5 in overtime Sunday.

Jordan Leopold(notes) scored at 4:25 of overtime for the Penguins, who will be the No. 4 seed in the Eastern Conference when the NHL playoffs begin this week. The defending Stanley Cup champions will host fifth-seeded Ottawa in their opener.

Crosby’s second-period breakaway gave him 51 goals this season, tying him with Tampa Bay’s Steven Stamkos(notes) for the Maurice Richard Trophy as the league’s top goal scorer.

Evgeni Malkin(notes) complemented Crosby’s big game with two goals and two assists.
