(1) Detroit v. (2) Pittsburgh
Red Wings lead series 2-1
In the end, though, it was Crosby who answered the call when the Penguins needed him the most. With their playoff lives hanging by a thread, Crosby scored twice in a 3-2 win over the visiting Red Wings. It was a game that started slowly and then shifted into overdrive in a wild and entertaining third period.
"There's no doubt you're looking for your best player to bring his 'A' game," Therrien said. "Sid certainly did that tonight."
