PITTSBURGH -- When Pittsburgh Penguins coach Dan Bylsma shuffled the lines in search of a spark for his slumping offence, putting Evgeni Malkin and rookie Brian Gibbons on the ice together wasnt what he had in mind. Still, hell take it. Gibbons converted a slick backhand pass from Malkin for his first NHL goal at 3:56 of the third period, starting a late burst as the Penguins beat the weary Anaheim Ducks 3-1 on Monday night. Called up from the minors 12 hours before the opening faceoff, the 25-year-old Gibbons was thrown immediately onto Pittsburghs third line. He ended up on the ice with Malkin after the Penguins were caught in the middle of a shift change. While watching Malkin do a full lap through the Anaheim zone, Gibbons sprinted to the slot, took the pass and sent a shot over Viktor Fasths right shoulder to break a scoreless tie. "I was just trying to get to the net and bang home a rebound or something," Gibbons said. "Somehow it ended up right on my stick." Gibbons earned his first NHL assist 62 seconds later when Brandon Sutter deflected Olli Maattas shot from the point past Fasth. Anaheims Ryan Getzlaf quickly pulled the Ducks within one, but Sidney Crosbys 10th goal of the season capped a flurry in which the Penguins scored three times in just over four minutes. The outburst was a welcome development for a team that for all its considerable offensive talent has struggled to score recently. The Penguins came in riding a 1-4 slump, scoring just one goal in each of the four losses. "It was actaully a good game for us," Bylsma said. "We wanted to be in that tight game and stayed the course and came through with a couple of big goals." Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 26 shots for Pittsburgh as the Penguins leapfrogged Washington to move back into first in the Metropolitan Division. The teams will meet in the nations capital on Wednesday. Getzlafs fifth goal in four games provided all of the offence for the Pacific Divison-leading Ducks, who earned just one point during a four-game East Coast road trip. Fasth made 24 saves but struggled in the final 20 minutes. "Im not seeing any secondary scoring from anybody," Anaheim coach Bruce Boudreau said. "When you dont have four lines contributing scoring its tough to win. I dont care how good the guys are, its tough to win." Anaheim totalled just six goals in four games during a swing through Florida, Tampa Bay, Carolina and Pittsburgh. "Weve been getting chances and stuff and weve been working hard, but like I said weve had sickness and injury throughout our team and we havent dealt with it well this trip," Getzlaf said. The Penguins have their own issues, particularly an offence that has looked spotty at best over the last three weeks. Bylsma decided to experiment. He moved Pascal Dupuis from the top line with Crosby to the second line with Malkin, replacing Dupuis with Beau Bennett. Jussi Jokinen, second on the team in goals, was bumped down to the third line to give Sutter a little help. The initial results were underwhelming. Then again, Anaheim had a little something to do with it. The Ducks, in the midst of their first rough patch following a brilliant start, dominated the first period. They clogged passing lanes, gave Pittsburghs talented forwards little room to freelance, and controlled play for long stretches. Pittsburgh didnt record a shot on Fasth until 2:02 left in the first period, when Bennett managed to redirect a pass from Crosby into Fasths chest. "Theyre a big team," Crosby said. "They got a long reach and they clog up the neutral zone pretty well." The arena roared in mock celebration, though for all of the Penguins offensive issues, the game remained scoreless thanks to Fleury. Starting for the 19th time in Pittsburghs 22 games, Fleury turned aside several early scoring chances, including a pair of opportunities by Getzlaf. The Penguins grew so frustrated at one point that Bylsma paired Malkin with Crosby and Chris Kunitz for a couple of shifts, looking to get something started It produced better flow but nothing that found its way by Fasth. Pittsburghs best chance came when Malkin skated behind the Anaheim net and deftly dropped the puck to a sprinting Kunitz, whose backhand shot banged off Fasth -- who wasnt looking because he thought Malkin still had the puck -- and then hit the crossbar before rolling out of danger.

. MARIE, Ont.BUDAPEST, Hungary -- Lewis Hamilton of McLaren will start from pole position at the Hungarian Grand Prix after winning Saturdays qualifying session ahead of Romain Grosjean and world champion Sebastian Vettel. Hamilton clocked 1 minute 20.953 seconds to put .413 seconds between himself and Lotus driver Grosjean, who achieved his first front-row start of the season for Sundays race. Red Bulls Vettel finished in 1:21.416, just ahead of Hamiltons teammate Jenson Button. "Its been a really positive weekend so far," said Hamilton, who was fastest in Fridays two practice sessions and second behind Mark Webber of Red Bull in Saturdays morning practice. "Still, we have a very long race tomorrow so lots can happen, but we just need to keep our cool." It was the third pole of the season and third pole at the Hungaroring, too, for Hamilton, who has one victory in 2012 and is fifth in the standings. "Its the same as everyone else when they win races," Hamilton said when asked about the secrets to his success in Hungary. "You just have to keep your head cool and make sure you look after your tires. Tire strategy is going to be important." It was the 150th pole position for McLaren, which contested its first Formula One race in 1966. The team has dominated at the Hungaroring in recent years, winning five of the last seven events. Hamilton triumphed here in 2007 and 2009, while Button -- who won his first race here in 2005 while racing for Honda -- is the defending champion on the famously winding Hungarian circuit, where passing is difficult. World championship leader Fernando Alonso of Ferrari was sixth, behind Lotus driver Kimi Raikkonen. "We were expecting a very difficult qualifying and so it was," said Alonso, winner of two of the last three races.dddddddddddd. "All things considered, sixth place is not to be sneered at, far from it. Its true that overtaking is not easy here, but tomorrow it might rain and we know that can change everything." Rounding out the top ten on the starting grid were Ferraris Felipe Massa, the Williams duo of Pastor Maldonado and Bruno Senna, and Nico Hulkenberg of Force India. Alonso has 154 points after 10 of 20 races, 34 ahead of Webber, who will start from 11th place. Vettel is 44 points behind the Ferrari driver. Grosjean, a Formula One newcomer, was thrilled about beating Vettel for second place on the grid just as the checkered flag came down to mark the end of qualifying. "Being here on the front row is something special ... we know overtaking is very difficult," Grosjean said. "Well need to start from the front, weve said that for a long time, so first job done." Vettel, the two-time defending champion, was confident about achieving a good result on Sunday. "With the progress we made since this morning and through qualifying, I think we should be in a good position tomorrow for the race," Vettel said. "The car is quick and sometimes really quick but its a bit difficult to get it out of the car all the time." Michael Schumacher, a four-time winner in Hungary, had a disappointing run in his Mercedes and will start from 17th place, his second-worst qualifying spot so far this season. Sundays race at the Hungaroring leads into a monthlong summer break before the Belgian Grand Prix on Sept. 2. ' ' '
