PITTSBURGH (KDKA/AP) — Sidney Crosby – showing no signs of slowing down – extended his point streak and helped to lead the Penguins to a 5-2 win over the Florida Panthers.

Mark Letestu scored on a wrist shot at 1:30 in the first with assists from Tyler Kennedy and Chris Conner. A little more than a minute later, Stephen Weiss got one past Brent Johnson to tie the game at 1-1.

Then Crosby scored the 22nd point of his streak on a slap shot at 7:44 to make it 2-1. Matt Cooke gave the Pens a 3-1 lead at 10:57 with assists from Max Talbot and Evgeni Malkin.

In the second, Ben Lovejoy made his first goal in 31 career games at 6:19. He left the game in the third with less then four minutes left after Bryan McCabe’s slap shot struck him just below the left eye.

Pascal Dupuis made it 5-2 by getting an empty-netter with 28 seconds left.
