Kozlov, Hossa score in shootout to lead Thrashers past Penguins 4-3

Sidney Crosby, the NHL's leading scorer, forced overtime with 15.3 seconds remaining with a tap-in from the near right side. In the shootout, Atlanta goaltender Kari Lehtonen first stopped Erik Christensen before holding off Crosby's attempt to beat him on the stick side.

Crosby's extended his scoring streak to 10 games with his 17th goal. The second-year star, a former No. 1 overall draft pick, has seven goals and 15 assists during the streak.

Ilya Kovalchuk had a goal and two assists for Atlanta, which has won two straight after ending a five-game losing skid with a shootout victory at New Jersey on Tuesday.
