Crosby, Pens score 3 goals in 65 seconds, chase Flyers’ Mason

4 Comments

The Philadelphia Flyers were probably feeling pretty good in the first period after building a 2-0 lead. Then Sidney Crosby was … well, Sidney Crosby.

In the span of 65 seconds, the Penguins turned a 2-0 deficit into a 3-2 lead.

Crosby scored two of those three goals, including this ridiculous snipe from an absurd angle. Watch this goal and just shake your head at how unfair his skill level can be:

His power-play goal was pretty nice, too:

Impressive stuff. Matt Cullen was responsible for the 3-2 tally on a broken play.

Update: Apparently that flurry of goals was too much for the Flyers, who replaced Steve Mason with Michal Neuvirth to start the second period.
