Penguins 3 - Sabres 4(OT): New Coach, Same Results

Well, at least the Penguins took it to overtime and got a point of the affair.

Despite a new Penguins coach behind the bench and Sidney Crosby wearing his newly awarded A, the result was familiar: another L for Pittsburgh and another W for Martin Biron.

Buffalo's Chris Drury scored on a rebound in overtime and Biron became the first NHL goalie in eight years to win 12 consecutive starts, helping the Sabres ruin Michel Therrien's debut as the Penguins' coach with a 4-3 victory Friday night.
In Crosby's first game with the Alternate Captain's "A", he also saw an increased workload with 20:19 of ice time and 13 face-offs (of which he won only 4!). Crosby earned 1 assist on Zigo Palffy's controversial goal and finished +1 with 6 shots. Don't blame Crosby for this loss, as he played pretty well overall.
