PITTSBURGH (Ticker) -- All-Star Sidney Crosby and the Pittsburgh Penguins are hoping to continue climbing up the postseason standings.

Crosby and the surging Penguins shoot for their third straight win Thursday when they host the New Jersey Devils.

Crosby netted the game-winning goal during a shootout to lead Pittsburgh to a 5-4 win at Ottawa. With the win, the Penguins pulled within one point of the Senators for fourth place in the Eastern Conference standings.

The 19-year-old Crosby leads the NHL with 98 points but has only one through his last five outings, tying his worst slump.

New Jersey is coming off its third straight setback, a 5-4 loss to the lowly Philadelphia Flyers on Tuesday. Leading scorer Patrik Elias had one goal and two assists in the loss.
