Sidney Crosby was up to his old tricks again, being good at hockey and such. Crosby scored three times and added an assist as the Penguins outlasted the Tampa Bay Lightning, 5-4.

Each goal was a little different. The first was a tap in from the front of the net after Crosby kicked the puck to his stick. The second was a perfect tip of a Pascal Dupuis shot. Then finally, Crosby absolutely wired a shot past Anders Lindback to complete the trick.

The Penguins captain now has five goals on the season and a league-best nine points. Yep. Still good.
