Penguins 3 - Flyers 2: The Kid is Alright!

With Mario Lemieux out of the lineup, Sidney Crosby stepped up and showed some on-ice leadership as he carried the Penguins to a 3-2 win over the evil Flyers thanks to his 3 point performance.

Sidney Crosby is a better shooter than actor.

The 18-year-old rookie sensation scored his second goal of the game on a breakaway with 46.7 seconds left in overtime, leading the Pittsburgh Penguins to a 3-2 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers on Wednesday night.

Crosby needed stitches on his upper lip after getting high-sticked in the second period. No penalty was called on the play and Crosby later got an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty for diving.

"It's frustrating," Crosby said. "I go out for five minutes, come back in and get hit in the face from the same guy."

Crosby finished with 2 goals and 1 assist and +2 in 19:27 of ice time. Crosby went a woeful 1 for 7 in faceoffs and took that diving penalty for 2 PIM.
