Cosby Paces Pens Past Ducks
PITTSBURGH (AP) - Sidney Crosby scored on a pair of breakaways to extend his goal streak to a career-best seven games and added two assists to help the Pittsburgh Penguins continue their surge with a 6-2 win over the Anaheim Ducks on Monday night. Crosby beat John Gibson between the legs to give the Penguins a three-goal cushion in the second period and ripped one by Gibson's glove early in the third to help Pittsburgh emphatically end Anaheim's six-game winning streak. Chris Kunitz, Conor Sheary, Carl Hagelin and Olli Maatta also scored for the Penguins, who have won six of seven. Crosby, mired in a massive slump early in the year, now has 53 points in 51 games. Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 36 shots.
Ryan Getzlaf and Patrick Maroon scored for the Ducks. Gibson made 25 saves before being pulled early in the third.

Super Bowl Ratings
NEW YORK (AP) - Denver's victory over Carolina in the Super Bowl reached an estimated 111.9 million viewers, according to Nielsen, a number down from the last two years. Still, it represents the third most-watched television event in U.S. history.

McCoy Under Investigation
PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy is under investigation over the alleged assault of two off-duty police officers at a Philadelphia nightclub. Police say a fight broke out early Sunday over a bottle of champagne. They say four men punched, kicked and stomped an officer who was knocked to the ground. The second off-duty officer intervened with security guards. All were ejected from the club.
Police say one officer had a broken nose, broken ribs and a sprained thumb. The second officer was hospitalized with a possible skull fracture. A person familiar with the investigation confirms to The Associated Press that LeSean McCoy, who played six seasons for the Eagles, is one of the four men under investigation. He spoke on condition of anonymity because he is not authorized to publicly discuss the case. McCoy's agent, Drew Rosenhaus, didn't immediately return a message seeking comment Monday. The Bills say they are aware of the report and are gathering information.

Villanova Number One, West Virginia Moves Up
UNDATED (AP) - Villanova is No. 1 in The Associated Press college basketball poll for the first time.
The Wildcats (20-3) made the jump from third following then-No. 1 Oklahoma's loss to Kansas State and then-No. 2 North Carolina's losses to Louisville and Notre Dame. Villanova received 32 first-place votes Monday from the 65-member national media panel. Maryland, which received 13 No. 1 votes, moved up two spots to second. Oklahoma, which had been No. 1 for the last three weeks, dropped to third and received seven first-place votes. Iowa, which got 11 first-place votes, is fourth and is followed in the top 10 by Xavier, Kansas, Virginia, Michigan State, North Carolina and West Virginia. Kansas and Virginia both received one first-place vote. No. 23 Southern Cal and No. 24 Texas are the week's two newcomers, replacing Indiana and South Carolina.
