Penguins' Crosby awarded assist
Crosby was retroactively awarded an assist Friday by the NHL on Kris Letang's goal during the first period of Pittsburgh's 4-3, three-overtime playoff loss to Ottawa on Thursday night. Bill Guerin lost the assist that was awarded to Crosby.
The scoring change gives Crosby 14 points in five playoff games, the most he has scored in his 10 career playoff series. He had 13 points in a second-round series against Washington last spring.
The Penguins led the Senators 3-2 going into Game 6 of their Eastern Conference first-round series in Ottawa on Saturday night.
