Pittsburgh superstar Sidney Crosby, who hadn’t scored in his previous eight games, found the net early in overtime Monday night to give the Penguins a 3-2 victory over the visiting Tampa Bay Lightning.
Crosby scored a mere 40 seconds into the OT, and the Pens tied up the Eastern Conference final, best-of-seven series 1-1. The goal was Crosby’s fourth in the postseason. He scored it while going down to one knee after taking a Bryan Rust drop pass.
Crosby has Collected 47 goals and 130 points in 113 appearances. This goal was surprisingly Crosby’s first postseason marker beyond regulation in his career.
Tampa Bay cannot be happy with giving the split after coming back to force overtime. To make matters worse, they helped a superstar out of a slump in the process. It will be interesting to see who ultimately holds the momentum as the series shifts to Tampa Bay for Game 3 .
