Pittsburgh – Amid the joyous excitement in the victorious Pittsburgh Penguins locker room Monday, Sidney Crosby stood by his stall having a quiet conversation with owner Mario Lemieux.
Crosby had just done something that Lemieux never did during a Hockey Hall of Fame career in which he captained the Penguins to the Stanley Cup twice and scored 67 goals in the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
Crosby himself hadn’t scored an overtime goal in the first 112 postseason games of his NHL career. He corrected that anomaly 40 seconds into sudden death Monday for a desperately needed 3-2 victory against the Tampa Bay Lightning in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Final at Consol Energy Center.
Crosby said he felt “just happy” after seeing the puck sail in over goaltender Andrei Vasilevskiy’s blocker to finish off a 3-on-1 rush and end his eight-game goal drought. [x]
