The celebration was muted, and justifiably so.
Sidney Crosby‘s first goal of the Eastern Conference Final did little to change the scope of Game 3, as it merely slimmed the Ottawa Senators’ lead from 5-0 to 5-1.
Still, some might argue that it could mean something for the Pittsburgh Penguins and the series as a whole. It was a rare goal for Crosby and broke a bit of a slump for the team’s power play, too.
If nothing else, the questions about Crosby won’t revolve around him being pointless. Yes, it’s about small victories for the Penguins tonight.
