Penguins 2 - Lightning 3: Sid's an All Star

On the day that Sidney Crosby was announced as the leading All-Star vote receiver and All-Star starter, his club threw up another 3-2 loss to the Tampa Bay Frightning.

Too bad there was no bonus point this time :(

Sidney scored 1 goal on 4 shots in 23:45 of ice time and finished EVEN on the night. The Penguins fired 31 shots in total, but just couldn't break through.

From Yahoo Sports:
Sidney Crosby became an All-Star and scored a highlight-reel goal. The only thing missing was a Pittsburgh Penguins' victory.

Martin St. Louis had a goal and two assists, helping the Tampa Bay Lightning beat the Penguins 3-2 on Tuesday night.

Late in third period, it was announced that Crosby, at 19 years, 5 months, became the youngest player elected by fans to the All-Star game.

"It's an honor. Growing up watching it, and who would have dreamed of playing in it?" Crosby said. "It's something I will enjoy."

Vincent Lecavalier and Andreas Karlsson also scored for Tampa Bay, which has an 11-game winning streak against Pittsburgh. Five of the victories have come at home, where Tampa Bay has outscored the Penguins 22-4.
