Pens beat Flyers 6-1 as Crosby scores 1, sets up 2

Jordan Staal scored twice and Sidney Crosby's had a goal and assist early in the first period amid a succession of fights to lift the Pittsburgh Penguins to a 6-1 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers in the NHL on Tuesday.
Crosby scored an infrequent Penguins power-play goal 3:30 in _ and before a flurry of three fights in 16 seconds _ and set up Bill Guerin's goal about 2 1/2 minutes later, immediately after the first round of pushing, shoving and punching. Crosby had a three-point night and now has 21 goals and 28 assists in 28 career games against Philadelphia.
Marc-Andre Fleury made 26 saves for the Penguins, who won their third in a row and ninth in 12 games.
Wild 2, Blue Jackets 1
At St. Paul, Minnesota, Marek Zidlicky scored with 39 seconds left to snap a tie and giving Minnesota a victory over Columbus.
Mikko Koivu won a faceoff in the Columbus zone and sent the puck to the point to Zidlicky, who waited for an opening and fired a shot off goalie Steve Mason's stick and over his shoulder for the winning goal.
Guillaume Latendresse also scored and Koivu had a pair of assists for the Wild, who won their fourth straight home game. Niklas Backstrom stopped 21 shots.
Rick Nash scored the Blue Jackets' lone goal, and Mason also made 21 saves.
Predators 7, Lightning 4
At Nashville, Tennessee, David Legwand and Patric Hornqvist each had a goal and an assist as Nashville used a five-goal second period to beat Tampa Bay.
Jerred Smithson, Ryan Jones, J.P. Dumont, Dan Hamhuis and Martin Erat also scored for Nashville, which set a season high for goals in a game, topping the six they had at Ottawa on Oct. 22.
Vincent Lecavalier had two goals and an assist, and Steven Stamkos and Kurtis Foster added goals for the Lightning.
Blues 4, Flames 3
At St. Louis, T.J. Oshie scored the go-ahead goal with 4:58 to play, helping St. Louis earn its sixth victory in 18 home games.
David Backes had a goal and assisted on Oshie's sixth goal for the Blues. Andy McDonald and Alex Steen snapped goal droughts of 14 and 12 games for St. Louis, which also got two assists from Brad Boyes.
Rene Bourque had a goal and assist for Calgary.
Daymond Langkow's power-play goal early in the second ended a string of 10 consecutive penalty kills by St. Louis. Calgary took its first lead when Dustin Boyd scored from the slot midway through the period.
