Sidney Crosby, already with a goal and an assist, set up Evgeni Malkin for his second goal of the game 32 seconds into overtime to give the Pittsburgh Penguins a hard-fought 3-2 victory over the Boston Bruins.

Malkin fired home his 10th of the season, beating Tuukka Rask as the Penguins (14-4-2) ended a two-game losing streak and handed Boston (13-9-1) its second straight loss.

Rask made 30 saves while Marc-Andre Fleury made 27 saves for the Penguins to pick up his 300th career victory.

Frans Nielsen and John Tavares scored in the shootout as the New York Islanders outlasted the Philadelphia Flyers 1-0.

Islanders goalie Jaroslav Halak recorded 21 saves in regulation and overtime before stopping all three shots he faced in the shootout.

The Islanders (15-6-0) have won nine of their last 10 games.
