The Pittsburgh Penguins captain scored his 400th career goal on Sunday during their 4-1 win over the St. Louis Blues.

Goalie Matt Murray made 33 saves for the Penguins.

Crosby netted three minutes and 31 seconds into the second period to tie the game at 1-1, while Conor Sheary picked up the assist.

Crosby is just the third Penguins player to reach the 400-goal mark, joining Jaromir Jagr (439) and Mario Lemieux (690).

Crosby is also the 95th player in National Hockey League history with 400 goals.

Crosby had been held scoreless in his previous 10 games. The goal came 21 seconds after St. Louis' Kyle Brodziak opened the scoring.

Rust scored on a breakaway at 1:05 of the third period to give his team a 2-1 lead.

It was Crosby's 18th goal this season.
