The Pittsburgh Penguins completed a comeback from a 4-1 deficit with a 2-0 shootout win in a 6-5 victory over the Toronto Maple Leafs in their traditional Thanksgiving Eve home game on Wednesday night at Consol Energy Center in Pittsburgh.

Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin scored in the shootout as the Pens improved to 16-9-1 and took a seven-point lead over Washington and the New York Rangers in the NHL’s Metropolitan Division.  Toronto slipped to 14-9-2.

Malkin scored twice during regulation play.  Chris Conner and Kris Letang added Pittsburgh goals, and James Neal scored his fifth goal in three games.  Rookie Jeff Zatkoff (3-2) earned the win after replacing starting goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury in the first minute of the second period.

James van Riemsdyk scored twice for Toronto, while Phil Kessel, Tyler Bozak and Nazem Kadri all added goals.  Goaltender Jonathan Bernier took the loss.

The Penguins’ next game will be played Friday afternoon at 4:00 at Tampa Bay (16-8-1) — the first game of a three-game road trip.  Radio pregame airtime on 96.3 KQW will be 3:30 PM.
