Sidney Crosby Scores In Return Against The Islanders

The Pittsburgh Penguins had a pretty good record coming into Monday night’s face-off against the New York Islanders at the CONSOL Energy Center in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

Now, with the return of Sidney Crosby, it looks like it’s about to get even better.

Crosby, who was riding the pine for nearly a year following a severe concussion, scored the opening goal of the game, assisted by Pascal Dupuis and Deryk Engelland.

The CONSOL Energy Center, as expected, went bananas.

Crosby’s goal lit a fire under the keisters of the already-red hot Penguins, who now lead the Islanders 4-0 heading into the third period.

In addition to "Sid the Kid," Brooks Orpik, Evgeni Malkin and Steve Sullivan all had goals for the home team.

And there is still 15 minutes of hockey to be played.

That’s bad news for the visitors, who need a miracle (or at least a huge third period) to make this thing competitive.

Stay tuned.
