PITTSBURGH (AP) — The Pittsburgh Penguins acquired forwards Nick Bjugstad and Jared McCann from the Florida Panthers on Friday for forwards Derick Brassard and Riley Sheahan and three 2019 draft picks.
The deal gives the Penguins an influx of youth in the 26-year-old Bjugstad and the 22-year-old McCann as they make another playoff push. The Panthers, meanwhile, get some salary-cap flexibility and two expiring contracts that could help at the trade deadline.

Then, Phil Kessel and the power play changed everything.
Kessel scored two power-play goals, Derick Brassard added two goals and the Penguins defeated the Detroit Red Wings 5-2 on Thursday.
"Just the plays he made tonight is elite," Brassard said of Kessel. "It's up there with the tops in the league. He's going to win you some games like that."
UNIONDALE, N.Y. (AP) — Casey DeSmith is providing a lift for the Pittsburgh Penguins while Matt Murray is sidelined by a lower-body injury.

Crosby finished off a 2-on-1 by sneaking a wrist shot past Chris Gibson 3:48 into overtime to give the Penguins a 3-2 win Saturday. Pittsburgh's captain failed to convert on a rush moments earlier, but an outlet pass by Justin Schultz freed up Crosby once again.
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — The Columbus Blue Jacket acquired defenseman Ian Cole from the Ottawa Senators on Monday for center Nick Moutrey and a 2020 third round draft pick.
This is the second time in three days Cole has been moved. Ottawa acquired the 29-year-old Friday night from the Penguins in a deal that brought Derick Brassard to Pittsburgh.
But it was believed the Senators were not going to keep Cole, who now joins Pittsburgh's regional and divisional rival.
OTTAWA, Ontario (AP) — Brandon Manning had a goal and two assists and the Philadelphia Flyers topped the Ottawa Senators 5-3 on Saturday for their fifth consecutive victory.

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — The Pittsburgh Penguins acquired center Derick Brassard from Ottawa on Friday night in a three-team deal that sent defenseman Ian Cole to Ottawa and forward Ryan Reaves to the Vegas Golden Knights.
The Penguins announced the deal Friday night during their 6-1 victory at Carolina, with Pittsburgh general manager Jim Rutherford calling it "the most complex trade I've made" because of salary cap issues and the involvement of a third team.
RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — The Pittsburgh Penguins made plenty of moves Friday night — on the ice, with the roster and in the standings.
Phil Kessel and Evgeni Malkin each had two goals and an assist and the Penguins moved into first place in the Metropolitan Division by routing the Carolina Hurricanes 6-1 for their season-best sixth straight victory.
OTTAWA, Ontario (AP) — Nikita Kucherov and the Tampa Bay Lightning are back atop the NHL.
Kucherov had two assists to reach 80 points this season and Tampa Bay defeated the Ottawa Senators 4-3 on Thursday night.
Tyler Johnson, Victor Hedman, Vladislav Namestnikov and Brayden Point scored for the Lightning (41-17-3), who leapfrogged expansion Vegas to regain the top spot in the overall standings with 85 points. Louis Domingue earned his third win by stopping 33 shots.
OTTAWA, Ontario (AP) — The Ottawa Senators' quick start led to an early exit for Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist.
Derick Brassard had a goal and two assists and Ottawa defeated the New York Rangers 6-3 on Saturday.
Lundqvist allowed five goals on 27 shots before being replaced by Brandon Halverson with 13 minutes remaining.
Halverson stopped five of the six shots he faced for New York in his NHL debut.
OTTAWA, Ontario (AP) — Mike Hoffman joked with Robin Lehner earlier in the day that he was going to get a goal against his former teammate.
Hours later Hoffman did just that, scoring 1:13 into overtime Thursday night to give the Ottawa Senators a 3-2 win over the Buffalo Sabres.
Hoffman took a cross-ice pass from Erik Karlsson and beat Lehner with a one-timer from the left side to end Ottawa's two-game skid.
