Crosby grinding through lengthy goal drought as Penguins try to regroup against Rangers

PITTSBURGH, Pa. - The Pittsburgh Penguins are rallying around struggling star Sidney Crosby.

The NHL's leading scorer watched his playoff goal drought reach a career-high 12 games in Friday night's 3-2 overtime loss to the New York Rangers in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference semifinals.

Crosby was also on the ice for all three New York goals, including Derick Brassard's winner.

The MVP candidate says he is healthy and needs to just stay aggressive. Crosby has six assists in seven games during the playoffs, but hasn't scored a post-season goal since a victory over Ottawa in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference semifinals last year.

Game 2 against the Rangers is Sunday in Pittsburgh.

Quote of the Day

It's a date that's been circled on my calendar, so it's kind of nice to have it here and get it over with (Thursday). This is a little bit of the closing of the book on the move. That's kind of how I'm looking at it.
