Penguins’ Crosby scores 50th and 51st goals
Sidney Crosby scored his 50th goal again – and this time it will
The Pittsburgh Penguins captain hit the magic milestone for the
first time in his five-year NHL career when he scored a power-play
goal Sunday against the New York Islanders with 2:57 left in the
first period to give his team a 3-0 lead.
The 22-year-old superstar, who netted the Olympic gold-medal
winning goal for Canada at the Vancouver Games, thought he had his
50th of the season Thursday night at home against the Islanders. He
was stripped of that one long after the game when a video replay
showed it was scored by Bill Guerin.
Crosby added his NHL-leading 51st goal 55 seconds into the
second period on Sunday to push the Penguins in front 4-1.
