Game Notes:

Sidney Crosby, Jason Zucker and Jake Guentzel scored for the Pittsburgh Penguins in a 3-1 victory over the Montreal Canadiens on Monday night. The win brings the best-of-five qualifying series back to even, each team with one win.

Crosby beat Montreal’s Carey Price early in the first, while Jason Zucker scored with about five minutes left in the third. Guentzel put it out of reach with an empty-net goal. Jesperi Kotkaniemi ruined Matt Murray’s bid for a shutout.

Pittsburgh continues to struggle on the power play. They were 0 for 5, after going 1 for 7 in the first game of the series.
