It was a beauty at full speed.
Sidney Crosby set up James Neal to get the Pittsburgh Penguins on the board and back into a tie game with the Detroit Red Wings on Wednesday night. And what a goal, scored on the power play, it was.
Crosby entered into the offensive zone and dished a perfect saucer pass to Neal, who was speeding down the left side. Neal broke in alone, deked to the backhand and beat Jonas Gustavsson, who with just less six minutes remaining in the middle period, had faced only eight shots to that point.
The Red Wings regained the lead with 5:38 remaining in the second period.
