(SportsNetwork. Tim Williams Jersey .com) - The Pittsburgh Penguins are coming off consecutive victories and they hope to stay hot Thursday when they welcome the defending Stanley Cup champion Los Angeles Kings to the Steel City. Pittsburgh halted a two-game slide with Saturdays 3-0 win in Nashville and followed by slamming the New Jersey Devils in the opener of a three-game homestand on Tuesday. The Penguins trailed the Devils 3-1 in the early stages of the second period, but ended the contest with seven unanswered goals to earn an 8-3 blowout victory. Craig Adams goal in the second period put the Penguins ahead for good, while Sidney Crosby scored twice in the resounding victory. Pascal Dupuis, Blake Comeau, Steve Downie and Patric Hornqvist each posted a goal and an assist for the Penguins. Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 16 shots in the win. Thats what great teams do, said Dupuis. They get their top guys out that are chipping in night in and night out and you have the guys that are coming up big any given night. Thats how you win games. Thats how you win championships. Crosby enters Thursday second in the league with 14 points and is trailing Tyler Seguin of Dallas by one point. Tyler Toffoli of the Kings is just one behind Crosby with 13 points off five goals and eight assists. Crosby has one goal and six helpers in five career games against the Kings, while Fleury is 4-2-0 with a 2.26 goals against average in his career versus L.A. The Kings are hoping to rebound tonight after having a six-game winning streak snapped in controversial fashion Tuesday in Philadelphia. After a video review, former Kings forward Brayden Schenn was awarded the game-winner with 2:24 remaining in overtime. Schenn skated in all alone from the hosts side of center ice in the neutral zone and shot low, but while Kings netminder Jonathan Quick smothered the shot with his pads, the puck was loose for a second. Schenn made a hard stop in the crease and the force of covering the rebound pushed Quick into the net with the puck presumably over the goal line. The original call did not indicate a goal, but upon a conference of all four officials plus a brief review, the on-ice decision was overruled, giving the Flyers the 2-1 victory. I dont know the exact ruling on that because they seem to change it every year, Quick said following the loss. But usually youre not allowed to push the goalie into the net, so I dont know. Maybe they changed it again on us. Toffoli and former Flyers captain Mike Richards scored for the Kings, with Quick making 40 saves in the setback. The Kings played Tuesdays game with just 11 forwards, but they hope centerman Anze Kopitar (upper body) can play tonight after sitting out against the Flyers. Fellow forward Trevor Lewis also is questionable with an upper-body injury, while winger Marian Gaborik is doubtful with an upper-body issue of his own. L.A. will aim for its first road win tonight when it plays the second test of a five-game trek. The Kings are 0-0-2 as the visiting team this season, while posting a 6-1-0 record at home. Pittsburgh has won six of the last eight meetings versus the Kings. L.A. did halt a three-game road skid in this series with a 3-2 win at Consol Energy Center on March 27. With the Kings also playing tomorrow night in Detroit, Martin Jones could get his second start of the season in on of the next two games.

But back-up Peter Budaj has put up two wins and an overtime loss while starting three games in four nights since Price went down with a suspected groin injury. LOS ANGELES -- Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling repeatedly disparaged Magic Johnsons HIV-positive status in an interview that aired Monday, saying he was not a fit role model for children and dismissing his work in business and charity. The interview with CNNs Anderson Cooper was meant to be a mea culpa in Sterlings first public comments since racist recordings emerged last month and earned him a lifetime NBA ban, but when the subject turned to Johnson, who was mentioned in the recordings, Sterling is anything but apologetic. "Hes got AIDS!" Sterling said loudly at one point, cutting off Cooper as the interviewer attempted to cite Johnsons accomplishments after Sterling asked, "What has he done, big Magic Johnson, what has he done?" Sterling changed course briefly during the interview to call Johnson "a good person," but resumed his criticism. "He acts so holy," Sterling said. "He made love to every girl in every city in America, and he had AIDS, and when he had those AIDS, I went to my synagogue and I prayed for him, I hope he could live and be well. I didnt criticize him. I could have. Is he an example for children?" Cooper corrected Sterling, explaining that Johnson was HIV-positive but did not have "full-blown AIDS." Sterling briefly adjusted his language but not his tonee. Michael Crabtree Jersey. "What kind of a guy goes to every city, has sex with every girl, then he catches HIV. Is that someone we want to respect, and tell our kids about?" Sterling said. "I think he should be ashamed of himself." Johnson, who is scheduled to appear on Coopers show to reply on Tuesday, wrote on his Twitter account that "Id rather be talking about these great NBA Playoffs than Donald Sterlings interview." Johnson later Tweeted, "After this week, no more Sterling talk." The comments earned Sterling a quick rebuke from NBA commissioner Adam Silver, who handed down a lifetime ban and $2.5 million fine against Sterling last month. "I just read a transcript of Donald Sterlings interview with Anderson Cooper and while Magic Johnson doesnt need me to, I feel compelled on behalf of the NBA family to apologize to him that he continues to be dragged into this situation and be degraded by such a malicious and personal attack," Silver said. "The NBA Board of Governors is continuing with its process to remove Mr. Sterling as expeditiously as possible
