Penguins 6 - Canadiens 3: Mon Dieu!

Sidney Crosby

Sidney has surely sunken the slump, and had another 2 goals (and +2) as the Penguins doubled up the sinking Canadiens by a 6-3 score. The Penguins, and Sidney, are finding their groove at the right time as the Habs slip and slide out of the playoffs.

Check out the video of Sidney's FIRST goal on the night. He cuts through the Habs defense like a hot knife through margarine. MMMM.


The Pittsburgh Penguins are having a lot of fun these days.

Sidney Crosby and Erik Christensen score two goals apiece, and the Penguins beat the Montreal Canadiens 6-3 Friday night. Pittsburgh is 6-0-1 in its last seven games and pulled within four points of Atlantic Division-leading New Jersey.

"We just come to the rink every day and try to have fun and get better," Christensen said. "We're not so much worried about the numbers. Sometimes it's not whether you win or lose, it's how you play. We're focused on just coming to the rink every day and having fun and working hard and getting better."

Gary Roberts and Michel Ouellet also scored, and Evgeni Malkin and Mark Recchi had two assists apiece for the Penguins, who reached a deal for a new arena on Tuesday to assure their future in Pittsburgh.

"It's definitely a big team effort and all of us should be happy with the way things are going," said winger Colby Armstrong, who had an assist. "But we have to keep our nose to the grindstone and keep things going."

Chris Higgins, Sheldon Souray and Andrei Markov scored for Montreal, which remained in 11th place in the East. Michael Ryder had two assists.

Crosby's 30th goal, 4:28 into the game, was the latest of his highlight-reel scores this season. Crosby took the puck in the neutral zone, stickhandled his way through three Montreal players and flicked a wrist shot past goalie David Aebischer while falling to his left to elude a fourth.

"You just shake your head because you see that all the time from Sid," Christensen said. "It seems like he's performing miracles. I wouldn't be surprised if he walks on water one of these days. Amazing goal ... what else can I say? You can't say anything else, it was ridiculous to watch."
Well, Sidney does SKATE on (frozen) water, which is even more impressive.
