Penguins 4 - Carolina 3: Crosby for teh wins!

A win! A win!! A win over the Carolina Hurricanes, the #1 team in the East, no less.

"Anytime you play hockey, you want to play with momentum," Sidney Crosby said. "I think a lot of guys will tell you it's much nicer to play with a lead than it is to always be chasing."

Sebastien Caron stopped 34 shots for the Penguins, who still have the worst record in the NHL despite winning on the road for the first time in more than a month.

"It seems longer," Crosby said. "It's never easy losing. For us, it makes us realize how tough it is, especially against the best team in the league. That was probably one of the biggest challenges we've had."

Sidney was obviously a HUGE part of the victory with a (game winning) goal and an assist. In 22:18 of ice time, Sidney finished +2 with 2 shots and 13 for 27 on faceoffs.

Full game recap here.

The Penguins are still nicely in last place overall, but beating the top team must feel good.
