PITTSBURGH -- Evgeni Malkin stood in the right circle just watching the play unfold in front of him when the puck suddenly materialized on his stick with nary a soul around. Colby Rasmus Jersey . The empty net never had a chance. The Pittsburgh Penguins centre wristed his second goal of the season 7:20 into the third period to put the Penguins in front for good in a 3-2 win over Edmonton on Tuesday night. "Tough angle, great shot by Geno," Pittsburgh star Sidney Crosby said. "Hes been getting chances, its always nice to see them go in." Something that seems to be happening a lot for the Penguins, who remained unbeaten and largely unchallenged at home. Crosby assisted on all three Pittsburgh goals to vault him into the NHL scoring lead, two of the assists going to linemates Chris Kunitz and Pascal Dupuis. Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 20 shots to improve to 5-0, including a handful of spectacular saves to fend off the Oilers, who twice rallied to tie the game. "Hes making all the right saves at the right time," Kunitz said. Ales Hemsky and Jordan Eberle scored for Edmonton. Jason Labarbera made 25 saves but was nowhere to be found on the game-winner. The Penguins were on the power play when Crosby fed defenceman Paul Martin at the point. Martin wound up for a one-timer but instead dribbled a knuckler that slowly rolled right to Malkin. Labarbera wasnt sure what was happening until Malkin was in the corner celebrating. "I didnt know what happened," Labarbera said. "I look over and the puck is on his stick and I was kind of in no mans land." The Oilers fell to 1-5-1 to quell some early optimism the franchise is heading in the right direction behind former No. 1 picks Taylor Hall, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Nail Yakupov. "Weve got to find ways to win games, thats the bottom line," Labarbera said. "Every one of us needs to step it up a bit more and find a way to win." The Penguins havent trailed at home yet this season and wasted little time jumping on the well-travelled Oilers, who were playing their third game in four nights. Crosby, coming off a hat trick in a victory in Tampa on Saturday, collected the puck behind the Edmonton net and flipped a pass that deflected off Kunitzs stick and went right to Dupuis, who slipped a shot between Labarberas legs to make it 1-0 just 3:08 into the first period. Pittsburgh dominated the first 20 minutes but the Oilers collected themselves early in the second. A 5-on-3 power play failed to produce a goal but the momentum from the end of the penalty allowed Edmonton to tie it. Jeff Petry threw in a shot from the point and David Perron jumped on the rebound but his shot into a wide-open net went off the post and behind Fleury. Hemsky raced in and poked it across the goal line for his second goal of the season. Kunitz made it 2-1 Pittsburgh just past the games midway point, though he left the hard work up to Dupuis and Crosby. Racing in three-on-two, Dupuis wrist shot at the net was deflected by Crosby. The puck glanced off Labarberas glove and slid toward the net. Crosby raced behind the net and was about to tap it in only to have Kunitz beat his good friend to the punch by a split second. "It happened pretty quick, Im going to check my stick to see if theres a mark or a little chip on it," Crosby said with a laugh. Still, the Oilers kept coming. Fleury, arguably Pittsburghs best player during the teams quick start, ended up sprawled in front of the net during a scrum and was unable to secure the puck. It trickled out to Eberle, who lifted a backhand over a sea of players with 4:01 remaining in the second. It wasnt enough, however, for Edmonton to end a miserable opening two weeks or put a dent in Pittsburghs perfect record at Consol Energy Center. NOTES: Yakupov, the No. 1 pick in the 2012 draft, returned to the lineup after being a healthy scratch in the previous two games and played more than 17 minutes. ... Penguins F Beau Bennett was scratched due to a lower body injury and is "day to day" according to coach Dan Byslma. ... The Oilers continue their six-game road trip on Thursday against the New York Islanders. ... Pittsburgh plays in Philadelphia on Thursday. Evan Gattis Astros Jersey . And like the near entirety of last season, Jonathan Bernier and Torontos goaltending tandem is up to the task. Craig Biggio Jersey . Trailing 4-1 in the final set, Sharapova steadied her erratic service game and took command again to beat the 56th-ranked American 6-1, 4-6, 6-4 on clay at the Magic Box tennis centre. The ninth-ranked Russian looked to be cruising before McHale broke late in the second set to tie the match and then took her commanding lead in the final set after breaking Sharapova. EDMONTON -- The Edmonton Oilers have signed forward Leon Draisaitl, the third overall pick in the 2014 draft, to a three-year entry level contract. Draisaitl had 105 points (38 goals, 67 assists) in 64 regular-season games for the Western Hockey Leagues Prince Albert Raiders last season. He also had a goal and two assists on four playoff games.
