The Islanders can't catch Sidney Crosby.
Sid The Kid made it look easy in the second period of Game 5 on Thursday night when he turned a 1-on-2 breakaway into an amazing goal. Jarome Iginla got out in open space and passed the puck over to Crosby at center ice. With New York defenders Thomas Hickey and Lubomir Visnovsky in front of him, Crosby burst through the pair and put the puck right past goaltender Evgeni Nabokov.
Crosby finished the game with a goal and an assist, his seventh and eighth points of the series despite missing Game 1. Crosby played in each of Pittsburgh's five regular-season games against the Isles and recorded nine points, all assists.
The one Penguins player the Islanders have been able keep up with is goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury, who gave up 14 goals in three games. Unfortunately for New York, Fleury was benched for Tomas Vokoun in Game 5.
Pittsburgh shut out New York 4-0 to take a 3-2 series lead.
