    PITTSBURGH -- A year into the job, Pittsburgh Penguins coach Mike Sullivans daily message to his team has not changed. Adidas Swift Run Homme Pas Cher . Just as he did when he took over an underachieving group last December, Sullivan wants the Penguins to play the right way.Play smart defensively. Push it up the ice. Dont get caught up trying to make the fancy play. Just take the shot. Lots of them preferably. Repeat as necessary.At the moment, there may be no team in the NHL doing it as well as the defending Stanley Cup champions.Sidney Crosby left briefly after taking a stick to the face then returned to pick up his NHL-leading 21st goal and the Penguins crushed the Arizona Coyotes 7-0 on Monday night for their sixth straight victory.Pittsburgh has outscored the opposition 36-14 during the run, including Crosbys latest highlight reel score when he swatted a puck out of midair to make it 5-0 in the second period.I mean when youre winning, its fun, Crosby said.

Thats the score you get and thats where were at today.Crosby received treatment between the first and second periods after getting whacked in the mouth by Arizonas Martin Hanzal. The sellout crowd cheered when the captain returned to the bench about three minutes into the second. The roar grew considerably louder when Crosby stood all alone in front of the Coyotes net and patiently waited for the rebound off Evgeni Malkins slap shot to fall below the crossbar before he took a swing at it, replicating a goal he scored against Dallas earlier this month when he smacked the puck off the back of Stars goaltender Antti Niemi.I think you just kind of hope you have enough time to wait for it to go below the cross bar and have a play at it, Crosby said. Sometimes you put it where you want to. With the goal, I think he was looking for it up in the air, so I got lucky.By then, the matter was already well in hand for Pittsburgh, which improved to 52-23-8 in the regular season since Sullivan replaced Mike Johnston on Dec. 12, 2015. Sullivans arrival galvanized an underachieving club and provided the spark that eventually ended with the Penguins capturing the franchises fourth Stanley Cup last June.Pittsburgh is right back in the thick of it once again behind Crosby, whose remarkable surge coincided with Sullivans promotion. Crosbys 48 goals and 42 assists since Jan. 1, 2016 are the most in the NHL.When our special teams gets back up to where we know they can be, and if we continue to score like this and get great goaltending, Bonino said, then were obviously a tough team.Game notes Louis Domingue filled in after Smith was pulled in the middle of the second period and made nine saves on 12 shots. ...
