Sidney and the Penguins both go to 0-2

Sidney Crosby got his 2nd NHL assist, but the Penguins offense is still struggling and they lost tonight 3-2 to the Carolina Hurricanes in a shootout loss.

Crosby also cracked the 20 minute mark with 20:09 of ice time. Crosby also finished -1 with 3 shots on goal and 8 of 22 faceoffs won. While Crosby has put up 2 points, his 'other' stats aren't so impressive yet. Still, it's just 2 games and his teammates aren't exactly pulling their weight (Hello, Mario?)

Two games, two points for Sidney Crosby.

Crosby, the first-overall pick in the NHL Entry Draft, continued to shine as he set up another goal for the Pittsburgh Penguins in their 3-2 overtime loss against the Carolina Hurricanes at the RBC Center.

Crosby, who had a point in Wednesday’s season-opener, set up Ziggy Palffy’s game-tying goal for the Penguins in the third period. Both teams remained tied through the overtime period, so the game went to a shootout for the first time in either franchise’s history. The Hurricanes won the shootout, 1-0, as Cory Stillman scored on their first attempt and the Penguins failed to convert on three tries.
