Crosby Leads Pens Past Stars
PITTSBURGH (AP) - Sidney Crosby broke the game's final tie and assisted on another score in the third period as the Pittsburgh Penguins defeated the Dallas Stars 6-2 on Thursday night.
Crosby scored his league-leading 16th goal in the second period and assisted on Conor Sheary's sixth as Pittsburgh scored three goals in the final 4 minutes. Eric Fehr's third of the season was the 100th of his career and Patric Hornqvist's seventh came on the power play. Nick Bonino and Ian Cole both scored their third for Pittsburgh, which avoided consecutive regulation losses for the first time this season.
Marc-Andre Fleury made 33 saves for Pittsburgh. Fleury, who won for the first time in five starts, has six wins in his last nine home games.

Kang Charged With DUI
Pittsburgh Pirates' Jung Ho Kang was arrested Thursday following an alleged DUI incident in Seoul, South Korea. Kang was charged with DUI and leaving the scene of an accident. There were no injuries. Pirates president Frank Coonelly said in a statement, "We are extremely disappointed in Jung Ho and in his decision process during this matter." Coonelly went on to say, "I know first hand how foolish and dangerous it is to drive under the influence and am most thankful that, as we undertand it, no one was injured."

Gronkowski Needs Back Surgery
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) - Rob Gronkowski's season is likely over. The New England Patriots tight end was scheduled to have surgery for a herniated disk in his lower back. That's according to a team statement Thursday night. He's likely to be out for eight weeks or more. The Super Bowl is scheduled for Houston on Feb. 5, should the Patriots get that far. Gronkowski sat out practice Wednesday with what listed as a back injury. He was absent from practice again on Thursday. The injury is believed to have occurred during the Patriots' loss to the Seahawks on Nov. 13, in which Gronkowski said he received "probably one of the hardest I've got hit in my career" from safety Earl Thomas.

NASSAU, Bahamas (AP) - Tiger Woods ruined an otherwise impressive return to golf Thursday with two double bogeys over the final three holes for a 1-over 73 at the Hero World Challenge. It's his first competitive golf event in 15 months after back surgery. Woods was nine shots behind J.B. Holmes, in 17th place in the 18-man field. Only Justin Rose had a higher score at Albany Golf Club.
