Blake Comeau had the overtime winner to complete the hat trick as the Penguins edged the Toronto Maple Leafs 4-3 Wednesday night.

Crosby, who had two assists in the win, is also the sixth fastest player to reach 800 points (571 games) behind Wayne Gretzky (352), Lemieux (410), Mike Bossy (525), Peter Stastny (531) and Jari Kurri (558).

Evgeni Malkin had the other Penguins goal. Marc-Andre Fleury made 24 saves for his 301st career win.

Leo Komarov scored twice for the Leafs, his first career multi-goal game. Tyler Bozak added a shorthanded goal.

Jonathan Bernier made 22 saves seeing his record drop to 7-5-3 on the season.
