Simon, Kessel lead Penguins to 5-2 win against Rangers

PITTSBURGH (AP) Dominik Simon admits he got a little wide-eyed as he closed in on his first NHL goal.

The only thing left for the Pittsburgh Penguins' rookie forward was to put the puck in a half-empty net.

Simon did just that as he and Phil Kessel scored milestone goals to lead the Pittsburgh Penguins to a 5-2 victory against the New York Rangers on Sunday night. Kessel's 20th of the season was his 700th point that put the Penguins ahead for good.
