Pens down Sens in shootout

Ottawa, ON (Sports Network) - Evgeni Malkin's goal in the third round of the shootout lifted the Pittsburgh Penguins to a 2-1 victory over the Ottawa Senators on Sunday at Scotiabank Place.

Sidney Crosby and James Neal each scored to start the shootout before Malkin slipped a backhand under the pads of Ottawa goaltender Craig Anderson to send the Penguins to victory.

Neal recorded the lone Pittsburgh goal in regulation, while Marc-Andre Fleury turned away 31 shots to help the Penguins halt a two-game skid.

Colin Greening tallied Ottawa's only goal and Anderson registered 33 saves in the setback, the Senators' second in a row.
