    ST. LOUIS (AP) Sidney Crosby got another milestone goal on Sunday. The puck went right to his dad.Crosby scored twice [url=]Rickard Rakell Jersey[/url] , including his 400th career goal, and the Pittsburgh Penguins pulled away from the St. Louis Blues for a 4-1 victory.Bryan Rust snapped a tie with a third-period tally and Riley Sheahan also scored for the Penguins, who have won 12 of their past 17. Matt Murray made 33 saves.Crosby had not scored in his previous 10 games dating to Jan. 14. The captain stopped the drought in the second period in front of his father Troy, who was on the two-game fathers’ trip that began Friday in Dallas.”It’s tough when you’re waiting that long to get it, but it’s definitely worth the wait to have my dad here,” Crosby said. ”So many early mornings and sacrifices so I could play hockey. It’s special to have him here.”Troy Crosby got the puck after the game along with a big hug.”It’s just so nice to be here,” Troy Crosby said. ”To be able to share it with him, there are just no words to describe it.”Kyle Brodziak scored for St. Louis, which had won two in a row. Jake Allen had 19 stops.Crosby jammed a shot under Allen’s pad from the side of the net at 3:31, tying it at 1 with his 18th of the season. He becomes the 95th player in NHL history to reach the 400-goal mark.”I still don’t know how it trickled in, it seemed like it took forever [url=]Womens Ryan Getzlaf Jersey[/url] ,” Crosby said. ”You’re trying to put it in that area, short side. Somehow it kind of found its way in.”Pittsburgh coach Mike Sullivan marveled as Crosby’s skills.”He scores more goals from below the goal line than anybody I’ve ever seen and he’s one of the few guys that thinks the game at such a high level,” Sullivan said. ”It was a typical Crosby goal.”Allen couldn’t believe Crosby was able to find such a small opening.”That’s why he’s the best player in the world,” Allen said. ”I would never play that any differently. He’s one hell of a smart player.”The goal came 21 seconds after Brodziak converted from close range off a pass from Chris Thorburn.Rust scored on a breakaway at 1:05 of the third period to give his team a 2-1 lead.”It was kind of a shot of adrenaline,” Rust said.Crosby added an empty-net goal with 2:48 left.It looked as if Paul Stastny had scored for St. Louis just 34 seconds before Rust got his eighth of the season, but video replay showed the puck was hit with a high stick.”It wasn’t our worst game we’ve played,” St. Louis defenseman Alex Pietrangelo said. ”I thought we battled hard.”Pittsburgh’s sixth win in eight games also marked the return of Ryan Reaves to St. Louis after he was traded to the Penguins in June. Reaves, who spent seven season as the Blues’ enforcer, was given a loud ovation when he came onto the ice for the first time.”I saw a lot of signs, a lot of love,” Reaves said. ”It was a fun day.”NOTES: Stastny played in his 800th NHL game. … Allen started back-to-back games for the first time since Dec. 27-29. … Pittsburgh has gone four games without a power-play goal [url=][/url] , tying a season-high four-game drought from Dec. 11-18. … St. Louis coach Mike Yeo was an assistant for the Penguins when they won the Stanley Cup in 2009.UP NEXTPenguins: Host Ottawa on Tuesday.Blues: Travel to Nashville on Tuesday.— LAS VEGAS (AP) Another game, another record for the Vegas Golden Knights.Alex Tuch scored the tiebreaking goal in the second period and the Vegas Golden Knights pulled away for a 7-3 victory over the Calgary Flames on Wednesday night.The win moved the Golden Knights back atop the NHL standings with 84 points – a record for an expansion team in its inaugural season – one point ahead of Eastern Conference-leading Tampa Bay.Ryan Carpenter, William Karlsson, Reilly Smith, Luca Sbisa, Erik Haula and Cody Eakin also scored for Vegas, which improved to 23-4-2 at home to also set the record for home wins by a team in its inaugural season. It topped the previous mark set by the Gordie Howe-lead 1979-80 Whalers (22-12-6).Tuch also had an assist and his first fight of the season, giving him the so-called Gordie Howe hat trick.”I thought our whole team played really hard, we got production from all our lines and it was really good to see,” Tuch said. ”I just try to come in here and play hard … it was good to get my first fight. I wasn’t even thinking about the Gordie Howe part of it. We were all pretty high on emotions and everyone was going back and forth. I was getting a little physical and I think (Travis) Hamonic saw that, so we got into each other’s faces and he asked me if I wanted to fight.”Marc-Andre Fleury [url=]Ryan Miller Jersey[/url] , starting his ninth straight game, made 28 saves for the Golden Knights, who rebounded from a loss on Monday to Pacific Division-rival Anaheim.”That’s what makes good teams, to be able to bounce back from bad games,” Fleury said. ”It’s good that we’re finding ways to put it behind us quickly and move on quickly and get ready for the next one.”Vegas is now 14-6 following a loss this season, outscoring teams 74-54 in those games.TJ Brodie, Dougie Hamilton and Matthew Tkachuk scored for Calgary, which was 8-2-1 in its previous 11 road games. David Rittich finished with 19 saves.With the score tied 3-3 in the second, David Perron found a streaking Tuch, who beat Rittich from a nice angle and went top shelf to give the Golden Knights the lead for good with 6:02 remaining in the period.Early in the third, the Flames thought they had tied the game [url=]Womens Alex Goligoski Jersey[/url] , but a challenge overturned Sean Monahan’s goal when Calgary was ruled offside.”It’s definitely a momentum swing when you think you tied the game up, and we scored shortly after that to go up by two goals, it’s a big difference in a hockey game,” Vegas coach Gerard Gallant said.Sbisa took Tuch’s pass and launched a one-timer past Rittich to make it 5-3 at 3:17. It was Sbisa’s 100th career point.Haula tipped in Sbisa’s slap shot from the point for his 23rd of the season with 8:45 remaining, and Eakin’s seventh made it 7-3 about three minutes later.”We just got outbattled in areas,” Calgary coach Glen Gulutzan said. ”We didn’t create as much offense, and in a game like this on the road you’ve got have a little bit more. We’ve a got a few guys that were cruising, and it’s not a time to cruise, it’s a time to push.”Carpenter gave Vegas a 1-0 lead 2 1/2 minutes in with his sixth goal in nine games, but Brodie’s fourth goal of the season tied it with 3:15 left in the first.Karlsson redirected Reilly Smith’s wrist shot to give the Golden Knights a 2-1 lead in the final minute, giving Vegas a power-play goal in 13 of its last 15 games.Hamilton tied it for Calgary just 20 seconds into the second period [url=]Christian Dvorak Jersey[/url] , but Smith put Vegas back ahead 3-2 about a minute later with his 20th.Tkachuk was credited with his 23rd when Vegas center Cody Eakin lost his stick and attempted to deflect a shot with his skate but tapped it past Fleury to tie the score with just under nine minutes left in the middle period.Calgary remains two points back of the final Western Conference wild card spot with 69.”That was frustrating, that loss, that’s a bad one that loss,” Tkachuk said. ”Definitely not coming at a good time, 21 games left.”NOTES: The seven goals tied the Golden Knights’ season high. … Vegas improved to 25-3-0 record when scoring the first goal of the game.
