Sidney Crosby scores a vintage goal and gives the Canadiens a great gift

Sidney no longer needs an introduction when it comes to a player who shows up in key moments, he always responds with his cannon.

The Penguins are on the verge of a playoff spot, in a heated battle with the Florida Panthers. On Wednesday night, the Pens visited the Avalanche in Colorado, a tough place to win.

As usual, Crosby set the tone for the game with a breathtaking goal en route to a 5-2 win for his team.




The win was a gift for the Habs, as the Penguins now pass the Panthers for eighth place in the East. Both teams have 11 games left to play. Remember, if Florida doesn't make the playoffs, the Habs will have a second chance in the Connor Bedard lottery.

If Aleksander Barkov's team qualifies for the playoffs, they will definitely finish in the last 16 teams to be selected, so no chance in the lottery for the Tricolore, who holds their first round pick this year.
