Penguins 6 - Devils 2: Welcome Back, Sid

The long Christmas break did Sidney good, and he seems to look refreshed and more energized.

Sidney Crosby had two goals and an assist, as the Pittsburgh Penguins defeated the New Jersey Devils, 6-2, at Mellon Arena.

Tomas Surovy added two goals and Marc Andre-Fleury stopped 44 shots for Pittsburgh, which put an end to a six-game losing streak.

"We had a great start the first half of the game," said coach Michel Therrien. "We followed the plan really well. It's a tough league to have a four-goal lead because sometimes you loose your concentration, and the other team is taking a lot of chances."

It must have been hard for Crosby and the Penguins to stew over the holidays sitting on such a long losing streak. It didn't help that their first game back was a loss to the Maple Leafs. So much for a coaching change bringing victories.

For the night, Sir Sid had 2 goals just 2 shots (efficient!) and was +3. Coun't him back in the Calder race, babes!
