Crosby's 15th hat trick leads Penguins over Blue Jackets 5-2

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) Sidney Crosby notched his 15th career hat trick and added an assist to lead Pittsburgh over the Columbus Blue Jackets 5-2 Friday night for the Penguins' fourth straight win.

Brian Dumoulin had a goal and two assists, Mike Matheson added a goal and an assist, and Bryan Rust had two assists for Pittsburgh, which has won 15 of its last 17 games.

"We've shown an ability to play the game a certain way that that gives us the best chance to win and it starts with an attitude," Penguins interim coach Mike Sullivan said. "Then it's a commitment to play in the game the right way and attention to detail, knowing what your job is and trusting that your linemate or your teammate is going to do theirs.
