Crosby scores 2, Penguins beat Sharks 5-0
SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) Sidney Crosby scored twice, Matthew Murray stopped 32 shots for his second career shutout, and the Pittsburgh Penguins continued their dominance of the San Jose Sharks with a 5-0 victory Saturday night.
Chris Kunitz, Eric Fehr and Nick Bonino also scored for the Penguins, who are 5-0-1 in their last six and have points in 10 of 12 games. Murray got his second win of the season.
The Penguins, who beat San Jose in six games in the Stanley Cup Final last June and won at home on Oct. 20, didn't give the Sharks much of a chance, scoring less than 4 1/2 minutes in.
San Jose goalie Martin Jones allowed three goals on seven shots before being replaced by Aaron Dell 13 seconds into the second period. Dell finished with 16 saves as the Sharks lost their third straight.
