Sidney Crosby records 2 assists, Penguins beat Capitals 4-2

It’s not easy for the Pittsburgh Penguins to find ideal linemates for Sidney Crosby or replace injured winger Jake Guentzel. Kasperi Kapanen filled each role to perfection Friday night, scoring as part of a 4-2 victory over the Washington Capitals that extended Pittsburgh’s winning streak to three. “Pretty easy to do that with Sid and (Evan Rodrigues).” Crosby assisted on Kapanen’s goal and Jeff Carter’s empty-netter to make it 13 points during his seven-game point streak.
