Sidney Crosby's return to the Pittsburgh Penguins just got even better.

A scoring change made Friday revealed Crosby earned another assist in the Pittsburgh Penguins' 5-2 win against the New York Rangers on Thursday.

Crosby had been credited with the primary assist on Chris Kunitz's goal at 3:01 of the third period. After an official review, it was discovered that Crosby also earned the primary assist on Pascal Dupuis' goal at 7:35 of the third.

On the play, Crosby re-directed Kris Letang's point shot on net, but Rangers goalie Martin Biron made the save. Dupuis, positioned to the left of the Rangers' net, scored off the rebound.

It was Crosby's first game since Dec. 5, when he began suffering a recurrence of concussion symptoms.

It was just the ninth game of the season for Crosby, but he has 2 goals and 12 assists in that span.

Quote of the Day

I would definitely love to play with him. He's a skilled player and over the years he definitely has shown that he can score a lot of goals. I think it would work out well.
