Penguins-Canadiens: Crosby Crushes Montreal's Winning Streak

Francois GendronSenior Writer IOctober 29, 2009

Sidney Crosby scored three goals on Wednesday evening against the Montreal Canadiens and helped the Pittsburgh Penguins win by a score of 6 to 1.

The Montreal Canadiens' winning streak has been stopped at four consecutive games and the overall team record stands at 6-6 after 12 games.

Jaroslav Halak was the starting goaltender for a fifth game in a row in this one, but was pulled by head coach Jacques Martin during the third period.

Carey Price allowed two goals in relief. We can expect Price's return as starting goaltender for the next game.

But the star of the show was Sidney Crosby, who completed his hat trick during the second period of the game. The Penguins captain and his troops have an impressive 11-2 record this season.
