Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby entered Game 2 of the Eastern Conference finals on Monday night riding an eight-game goal drought, tied for the longest of his postseason career, and having never scored an overtime goal in the playoffs.

Both of those streaks came to an end 40 seconds into overtime of the Penguins' 3-2 win over the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Here is a look at the play.

That goal gave the Penguins what had to be a satisfying end to what could have been easily a frustrating night.

After jumping out to an early 2-0 lead in the first period, Tampa Bay struck back with a pair of quick goals later in the period and then allowed goalie Andrei Vasilevskiy to make save after save. As the Penguins applied pressure in the third period and seemed to tilt the ice in their favor, the game started to have the look of one that was going to get stolen by a goalie. Vasilevskiey seemed locked in on every shot, including a sensational glove save on Crosby in the second period.

Crosby finally got one behind him and helped the Penguins tie the series at one game apiece.
