Sidney Crosby scored his first goal of these playoffs, and Marc-Andre Fleury earned his second shutout of the New York Rangers in two nights as the Pittsburgh Penguins regained home-ice advantage with a 2-0 victory in Game 3 on Monday night in New York.
Crosby snapped a 13-game goal drought in the playoffs to give the Penguins the lead in the second period, and Jussi Jokinen added a breakaway goal. Fleury stopped 35 shots.
Hurricanes fire Muller
The Carolina Hurricanes fired coach Kirk Muller and most of his staff Monday. Rod Brind'Amour, an assistant who was the captain of Carolina's Cup-winning team, will remain.
Muller was 80-80-27 in three seasons with the Hurricanes, who haven't made the playoffs since 2009. Muller, 48, made six all-star teams during a 19-year career with six clubs, most notably New Jersey and Montreal.
