PITTSBURGH -- Sidney Crosby had a natural hat trick to regain sole possession of the NHL goals lead at 40 and Marc-Andre Fleury made 21 saves Sunday as the Pittsburgh Penguins defeated the Florida Panthers 4-0 at PPG Paints Arena.

Crosby, who entered the game tied with Boston's Brad Marchand in the goals race, moved into a tie with Edmonton's Connor McDavid for the league scoring lead with 80 points apiece. Crosby has six goals in his past four games.

Fleury picked up his 44th career shutout, his second against Florida and his first of the season for the Penguins, who are 7-1-1 in their past nine games. The loss further diminished the playoff hopes of the Panthers, who are six points out of a wild-card spot with 11 games remaining.

Blue Jackets 4, Devils 1

NEWARK, N.J. -- Lukas Sedlak and Brandon Dubinsky scored penalty-shot goals as Columbus clinched a postseason berth.

Sergei Bobrovsky stopped 35 shots to help Columbus reach 100 points for the first time in franchise history. The Blue Jackets are tied atop the league standings with the Washington Capitals.

Boone Jenner scored twice for the Blue Jackets, including one into an empty net with 1:57 left. Adam Henrique scored the lone goal for the Devils, who have lost 12 of 13, and Cory Schneider made 23 saves in his first start since March 11.
