Tampa 3 - Pittsburgh 1: Crosby gets emotional!

From Saturday night,

The Penguins lose again and Crosby gets a point again. Is this record broken or what?

Kid Crosby continues his score-a-point-in-every-game streak as he had an assist on Zigmund Palffy's lone goal as the Pens were defeated 3-1 by the defending cup champs from Tampa.

Crosby finished with 16:03 of ice time, EVEN +/-, 1 assist, 3 shots on goal, and 5 for 13 on face-offs. Crosby also took 2 minors for 4 PIM's. Bad boy!

It looks like Sid Vicious got a bit emotional...

Crosby set up Ziggy Palffy's slap shot from the top of the slot in the third for the Penguins' only goal, and the 18-year-old rookie now has at least one point in all six Penguins games, with two goals and seven assists.

But Crosby contributed to the flurry of Penguins penalties that kept Tampa Bay on the power play for much of the Lightning's decisive two-goal second period. He drew a slashing penalty at 12:17 and then complicated it by complaining, and was given an unsportsmanlike penalty that gave the Lightning a four-minute power play.
