Sidney Crosby is robbed of a goal along the goal line. NHL

Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin have been struggling to find the back of the net for a couple of weeks now. In an effort to help get them going, Pittsburgh Penguins coach Mike Sullivan put them on the ice together for a shift in the second period and it resulted in one of their best scoring chances in a few games.

The only problem for the Penguins: Lightning goalie Andrei Vasilevskiy was having none of it.

That is a heck of a save by the 21-year-old goalie who was making in the start in place of the injured Ben Bishop.

Even though he gave up two goals in the first 12 minutes Vasilevskiy has been one of the Lightning's best players on the night. The Lightning came out a little slow in the first period and were allowing the Penguins to dictate the pace of the game and create a number of prime scoring chances. Even the two goals he gave up in the first period were the result of rebound opportunities after strong initial saves.

This save might have been his best of the night.
