Crosby was quiet for most of this game. And then he wasn't. The captain scored the game-tying goal, and then he scored a signature OT classic goal:
Whoa. Pens win 3-2. Goals from Crosby and Neal.
The Islanders let the Penguins hang around, and then Penguins woke up after being down 2-0. Malkin, Crosby and Neal willed the Pens to the victory. Marc-Andre Fleury kept the Pens afloat.
OUR THREE STARS
3. Evgeni Malkin and James Neal
They hooked up for another goal. Both were buzzing like madmen in the third period. They both took bad penalties (shady calls, though), but they worked their asses off. Neal is a threat to score every time he enters the zone.
2. Marc-Andre Fleury
Fleury gave up a goal he'd like to have back, but after that he shut the door. He stopped Frans Nielsen on a penalty shot just before the Penguins tied it. Huge moment.
1. Sidney Crosby
Another one for the highlight reel with the OT goal. Thomas Vanek should file a police report for the assault on his character after what Sidney Crosby did to him to set up the game-winner. Yikes.
