Penguins 3 - Rangers 2: Sid's a hit on Broadway!

Sidney Crosby made his debut on the NHL's biggest stage a good one with a goal in a 3-2 win over the Rangers.

Sidney Crosby's first goal in Madison Square Garden helped the Pittsburgh Penguins get out of last place.

Crosby - the game's first star - scored his fifth goal in his 15th NHL game and Mario Lemieux picked on a familiar opponent in the Penguins' 3-2 victory over the New York Rangers on Monday night.

Crosby has three goals and two assists through the first four games of the Penguins' longest road trip of the season. And it's no surprise that Pittsburgh is 3-1 with one game left.

Playing in New York can be intimidating for some youngsters, but Crosby didn't seem at all affected.

"It's an historic place," said Crosby, who has points in 13 games. "The atmosphere here ... it's always a challenge to play here so it was nice to get one."

Sidney finished with 1 goal in 15:45 of ice time with 2 shots on goal. The Penguins didn't get a lot of Power Play time, so Sid Vicious didn't play his usual 19-20 minutes.
