Toronto, ON (Sports Network) - James Neal and Sidney Crosby scored in the shootout, leading Pittsburgh over Toronto, 5-4, at Air Canada Centre.

Neal finished the first round with a shot between the pads of Leafs goaltender James Reimer, and after Marc-Andre Fleury flashed his pad to stop Nazem Kadri, Crosby ended the game with a high wrister.

Neal, Beau Bennett, Crosby and Pascal Dupuis tallied in regulation for the Penguins, who ran their road record to 11-4-0 this season thanks to their fourth straight win overall.

Fleury did just enough for the win, with 22 saves.

Phil Kessel totaled a goal and two assists for the Maple Leafs, losers of two in a row after winning three straight. Clarke MacArthur, James van Riemsdyk and Cody Franson alos scored.

Dion Phaneuf added three helpers, but Reimer suffered the loss despite 37 stops.
