KANATA, ONTARIO -- There was a scoring chance on Pittsburgh's first goal in its 4-3 triple-overtime setback in Game 5 of the quarterfinals at Mellon Arena Thursday night. After a review, Sidney Crosby was awarded the second assist on Kris Letang's goal at 18:05 of the first period.

With the additional assist, Crosby now has an NHL-best 14 points with five goals and nine assists. His nine assists and 14 points set new series-high totals for Crosby, besting his output from last season's semifinals round against Washington when he notched 13 points (7G-6A).

Crosby is only two assists from tying Ron Francis (11 vs. Washington, 1995) and three points from Mario Lemieux's franchise-best (17 vs. Washington, 1992) marks in a single playoff series.

The goal was originally credited to Letang from Bill Guerin and Evgeni Malkin. But it was ruled that Guerin never touched the puck. It now stands as Letang's goal from Malkin and Crosby.
