This is some slick passing by the Penguins power play

This is what an NHL power play looks like when it's at its best.

For as much talent as it is able to put on the ice, the Penguins power play seems to have its share of struggles at times.

This Sidney Crosby goal late in the second period of their game on Wednesday night in Washington was not one of those times. This was some slick passing and incredible puck movement that was finished off by Crosby ripping a bad angle shot past Braden Holtby to give his team a 3-0 lead.

The real star of this play though is the puck movement. Malkin, to Kunitz, to Neal, to Crosby. What is a goalie supposed to do about that?
