ST. LOUIS (AP) Sidney Crosby got another milestone goal on Sunday. The puck went right to his dad.Crosby scored twice Jacob Markstrom Jersey , including his 400th career goal, and the Pittsburgh Penguins pulled away from the St. Louis Blues for a 4-1 victory.Bryan Rust snapped a tie with a third-period tally and Riley Sheahan also scored for the Penguins, who have won 12 of their past 17. Matt Murray made 33 saves.Crosby had not scored in his previous 10 games dating to Jan. 14. The captain stopped the drought in the second period in front of his father Troy, who was on the two-game fathers’ trip that began Friday in Dallas.”It’s tough when you’re waiting that long to get it, but it’s definitely worth the wait to have my dad here,” Crosby said. ”So many early mornings and sacrifices so I could play hockey. It’s special to have him here.”Troy Crosby got the puck after the game along with a big hug.”It’s just so nice to be here,” Troy Crosby said. ”To be able to share it with him, there are just no words to describe it.”Kyle Brodziak scored for St. Louis, which had won two in a row. Jake Allen had 19 stops.Crosby jammed a shot under Allen’s pad from the side of the net at 3:31, tying it at 1 with his 18th of the season. He becomes the 95th player in NHL history to reach the 400-goal mark.”I still don’t know how it trickled in, it seemed like it took forever,” Crosby said. ”You’re trying to put it in that area, short side. Somehow it kind of found its way in.”Pittsburgh coach Mike Sullivan marveled as Crosby’s skills.”He scores more goals from below the goal line than anybody I’ve ever seen and he’s one of the few guys that thinks the game at such a high level,” Sullivan said. ”It was a typical Crosby goal.”Allen couldn’t believe Crosby was able to find such a small opening.”That’s why he’s the best player in the world,” Allen said. ”I would never play that any differently. He’s one hell of a smart player.”The goal came 21 seconds after Brodziak converted from close range off a pass from Chris Thorburn.Rust scored on a breakaway at 1:05 of the third period to give his team a 2-1 lead.”It was kind of a shot of adrenaline,” Rust said.Crosby added an empty-net goal with 2:48 left.It looked as if Paul Stastny had scored for St. Louis just 34 seconds before Rust got his eighth of the season, but video replay showed the puck was hit with a high stick.”It wasn’t our worst game we’ve played,” St. Louis defenseman Alex Pietrangelo said. ”I thought we battled hard.”Pittsburgh’s sixth win in eight games also marked the return of Ryan Reaves to St. Louis after he was traded to the Penguins in June. Reaves, who spent seven season as the Blues’ enforcer, was given a loud ovation when he came onto the ice for the first time.”I saw a lot of signs, a lot of love,” Reaves said. ”It was a fun day.”NOTES: Stastny played in his 800th NHL game. … Allen started back-to-back games for the first time since Dec. 27-29. … Pittsburgh has gone four games without a power-play goal, tying a season-high four-game drought from Dec. 11-18. … St. Louis coach Mike Yeo was an assistant for the Penguins when they won the Stanley Cup in 2009.UP NEXTPenguins: Host Ottawa on Tuesday.Blues: Travel to Nashville on Tuesday.— DALLAS (AP) Having no picks in the first three rounds made it look as though it would be a quiet, boring and ineffective weekend for the Calgary Flames.Instead, they became one of the biggest winners at the NHL draft by acquiring 23-year-old forward Elias Lindholm and 21-year-old defenseman Noah Hanifin in a five-player trade with Carolina on Saturday. It cost the Flames defenseman Dougie Hamilton Markus Granlund Jersey , winger Micheal Ferland and prospect Adam Fox, but they got younger and may have restored their lineup to its rightful order.Lindholm is a natural center, but could be the perfect fit on Calgary’s first line alongside Johnny Gaudreau and Sean Monahan. Moving Hamilton will allow T.J. Brodie to slide back on to the first defensive pairing with Mark Giordano, while Hanifin could benefit from playing with those veterans on the blue line.”I think Noah is just scratching the surface,” general manager Brad Treliving said. ”We’ve got some guys on the blue line who can produce. We also want guys who want to be in Calgary. Both players talking today, in Elias and Noah, they’re excited to get out there.”Beyond the Flames, here are some more winners and losers from the NHL draft:WINNER: PHILIPP GRUBAUERAfter lifting the Stanley Cup with the Washington Capitals, Grubauer was traded to the Colorado Avalanche where he’ll initially split time with Semyon Varlamov but should take over as the starter after next season. Grubauer signed a $10 million, three-year contract in the biggest payday of his career.LOSER: NEW YORK ISLANDERSThey got strong value in first-round picks Oliver Wahlstrom and Noah Dobson, but didn’t agree to terms on a new deal with John Tavares before he could begin meeting with other teams Sunday. Tavares will host five teams in the coming days and could become a free agent July 1, which would be devastating for the Islanders.”I have no disappointment, no discouragement,” GM Lou Lamoriello said. ”He’s earned every right to make whatever choice he has. The most important thing is that we hope in the end that he’s an Islander.”WINNER: BUFFALO SABRESAfter years of wandering and floundering, the Sabres have a franchise defenseman in No. 1 pick Rasmus Dahlin. This was set in stone in April when Buffalo won the lottery, but the organization will get an up-close look at the Swedish playmaker at prospect camp and has every reason to be excited about the future.”He’s a young player, he’s 18 years old, there’s high expectations down the road,” GM Jason Botterill said. ”But it’s going to be imperative to us to protect him, put him in and put him in the right situations so he can have success.”LOSER: ENTERTAINMENTThe only trades involving NHL players were the deal by Carolina and Calgary and the Capitals trading Grubauer and defenseman Brooks Orpik to Colorado. None of the top 10 picks changed hands, and most of the two days went off without drama.WINNER: ILYA KOVALCHUKThe Kontinental Hockey League’s leading scorer and Olympic MVP had plenty of suitors and wound up agreeing to a three-year deal with the Los Angeles Kings worth $6.25 million a season. The 35-year-old is returning to the NHL on the same deal Patrick Marleau got from the Toronto Maple Leafs a year ago, which is a coup for Kovalchuk.LOSER: MONTREAL CANADIENSRumors persisted about Montreal trading captain Max Pacioretty or even acquiring center Ryan O’Reilly from Buffalo. Neither move happened, leaving Marc Bergevin with a lengthy to-do list after already trading Alex Galchenyuk to Arizona for Max Domi.—
