Penguins hold off Capitals, 3-2

WASHINGTON (AP) - Sidney Crosby had a hand in both early goals and Pittsburgh converted on two of its first three shots Monday night, Chris Kunitz scored twice, and the Penguins beat Alex Ovechkin's struggling Washington Capitals 3-2.

Crosby finished with his 30th goal and two assists to raise his NHL-leading point total to 87, matching his uniform number. The Penguins beat Washington for the seventh consecutive time and overtook idle Boston for the Eastern Conference's best record.

The Capitals, who began the day outside of the playoff picture in 10th place in the East, have lost four of their past five games.

Monday featured the largely uneventful NHL debut of Capitals forward Evgeny Kuznetsov, a 2010 first-round draft pick.

The teams play each other again Tuesday at Pittsburgh.
