Crosby Returns to the Penguins Lineup on Tuesday

Pittsburgh's Bryan Rust and Arizona's Taylor Hall each converted in the third round of the shootout. After the Pens saw their four-goal lead cut in half, Crosby took the game onto his own stick, netting a simple backhand (with the help of Wild defenseman Matt Dumba).

Rookie Elvis Merzlikins made 34 saves to record his second shutout in as many games as host Columbus handed Boston its first blanking of the season.

WINNIPEG, Manitoba - Kyle Connor scored twice, Connor Hellebuyck made 41 saves in his fourth shutout of the season, and Winnipeg snapped a six-game home losing streak with a win over Vancouver.

"When you get down to that part of the bench, there is no a huge body of work to lean on", Sullivan said.

Crosby has played in 17 games this season for the Penguins and scored five goals and added 12 assists.

Arizona goaltender Adin Hill, making his fourth start in the past five games, stopped 25 shots.

Stepan redirected a centering pass from Niklas Hjalmarsson to give the Coyotes a 3-2 lead with eight minutes remaining before Tanev scored on a shot from the slot with three minutes left to tie it.

McCann scored at 2:43 of the first period, 18 seconds after a 5-3 numerical advantage. McCann has three goals in his last four games. In fact, Malkin was only held off the scoresheet completely in five of those 26 games.

Hall countered from an equally severe angle on the left side in the middle of the period to equalize to 2.

Numbers: The Penguins are 7-2-1 in their past 10 games, including a current three-game winning streak, and have a 16-5-3 record at home.

Coyotes: host of San Jose Tuesday evening.

He played like he never missed a day.
