Carolina 5 - Pittsburgh 3: Crosby Caught in the storm!

It wasn't a good night for Kid Crosby as the Penguins blew another lead and fell to the Carolina Hurricanes by a 5-3 score.

Crosby played 18:45 and was held pointless for only the second time this season. Crosby also finished -1, took 2 minor penalties, and didn't even take a faceoff.

Carolina scored four goals in the third period to post a 5-3 win over the Pittsburgh Penguins at Mellon Arena on Saturday night.

The Penguins (1-5-5) held a 3-1 lead through two periods, but the Hurricanes came back in the third period with two power-play goals and an even-strength tally. They added an empty-net goal to seal the contest.

“That’s a tough loss, that’s for sure,” Penguins coach Eddie Olczyk said. “For two periods we played really well. I kind of felt the first couple shifts in the third period, we weren’t doing the kinds of things we were doing early in the game. I just kind of felt the tide was turning.”
