Despite missing the finale, Crosby won his second scoring title - topping Anaheim’s Ryan Getzlaf.

Crosby, who finished with 36 goals and 104 points, outscored Getzlaf by 17 points to win the Art Ross Trophy for the first time since the 2006-07 season, his second in the NHL.

The seven-year gap is the second-longest span between scoring titles.

“Sid, I think, to get over 100 points … to have the lead as he does over Getzlaf by that many points is pretty amazing to see,” Bylsma said.

Pittsburgh hopes to have former NHL MVP and two-time scoring champion Evgeni Malkin back for the playoffs after he missed the final 11 games of the regular season because of a foot injury.

Malkin skated with teammates Chris Conner (foot) and Joe Vitale (upper body) on Sunday, but Bylsma didn’t say whether they would be ready for Wednesday’s playoff opener.

“I like the way we’re getting healthy and I like the way we’re playing,” Neal said. “This year is a little different than others. We’re playing good hockey at the right time and that’s big for us.”

Jokinen opened the scoring Sunday with a power-play goal with 5:14 left in the first period. His centering pass deflected off Eric Gryba’s skate and trickled between Lehner’s pads.

Turris tied it later in the period, scoring in the final seconds of a power play when he sent a shot past Zatkoff from the left faceoff dot.

Stempniak put the Penguins ahead 2-1 when he tipped Bennett’s shot behind Lehner at 5:16 of the second.

Stone tied it with Ottawa’s second power-play goal at 17:14 from the top of the crease, whacking in a rebound of Patrick Wiercioch’s point shot.
