Sidney Crosby Ends Drought, Scores First Goal Of 2014 Playoffs (Video)

The monkey is finally off Sidney Crosby’s back.

The Pittsburgh Penguins star scored his first goal in the 2014 Stanley Cup playoffs during Game 3 against the New York Rangers on Monday night. Crosby took a stretch pass from defenseman Roberto Bortuzzo and sniped a shot past Rangers netminder Henrik Lundqvist during the second period to give the Pens a 1-0 lead.

The goal was Crosby’s first tally in thirteen games — going back to the regular season — and it also ended his career-high playoff drought, which was also 13 games dating back to last postseason.
