Penguins WIN!!! Thrashees are Penguins' first meal.

Well, the Penguins finally managed to outscore and DEFEAT an actual opponent as they overcame the Thrashers 7-5 in a wild shootout.

Crosby definitely helped the cause with 2 assists in 19:32 of ice time. He finished EVEN on the night with 2PIM, and he won 2 of 3 faceoffs! Yes, the Penguins got their first win and Crosby actually won more faceoffs than he lost.

The Penguins, in danger of a blowout loss after Ilya Kovalchuk scored once and set up three goals in the opening 9:50, needed 10 games for their first victory - the longest season-opening stretch in franchise history. The Penguins have gotten at least one point in all but four games, but are 1-4-5.

Full game recap.
