The 5-foot-8 forward, who signed with Pittsburgh as an undrafted free agent in July 2015, equalled a career-best four-game point streak against his hometown Bruins on Sunday.I felt strongly that Conor could be a good player in this league, Penguins coach Mike Sullivan said. Im not going to suggest that I thought hed have 17 goals halfway through the season, but I knew he could be a solid player at the NHL level.Pittsburgh led 2-1 through two periods before breaking out in the third with three goals in the span of 2 minutes, 57 seconds.Bryan Rust added his 12th and Patric Hornqvist his 11th for the Penguins, who won a season-high seventh straight at home.

The line of Crosby, Sheary and Rust has 20 goals and 48 points in 15 games played, including nine against the Bruins.I think we bring a lot of speed to the table, Sheary said. When we get pucks behind the defence and come at them with speed, I think it tough for them to defend.
