Hey, remember when Sidney Crosby couldn't score and it was kind of a big deal, even though he was still doing other things to contribute? Well, the drought ended early in the second period on Monday night when Crosby took a beautiful breakout pass from Robert Bortuzzo and beat Henrik Lundqvist on a breakaway, ending what had been a 13-game goalless streak that went all the way back to the regular season.
He hadn't scored since March 30 in a win over the Chicago Blackhawks (he scored two goals that night).
This sequence happened just after the Rangers failed to score -- and hit two posts -- on a four-minute power play that came from James Neal's high-sticking penalty.
Even though he hadn't been putting the puck in the net, Crosby was still setting up his teammates and driving offense in his team's favor, and if there is one thing we should know by now when it comes to goal scorers, even the great ones, it's that they're all prone to lengthy droughts from time to time.
