Sidney Crosby's solo effort opens up Eddie Lack for outrageous 5-hole goal

No. 30 from the Penguins captain is a beauty.

Penguins fans can breathe a huge sigh of relief thanks to their captain. A tense opening six minutes saw the Penguins give up two goals to the visiting Carolina Hurricanes, but Sidney Crosby took it upon himself to get Pittsburgh back in the game with a solo effort for his 30th tally of the season.

Not only did Crosby out-body the Hurricanes defenders on the play, he threw down quite the moves on goaltender Eddie Lack that opened the netminder's five-hole for the goal.

Just what the Penguins needed to give them life in this game.
