18 year old Sidney Crosby played his first game in a Pittsburgh Penguins uniform on October 5, 2005. Although a -2 in that night's 5-1 loss to New Jersey, Crosby registered his first point in his NHL career on a goal by Mark Recchi.

Every fan had hopes that Crosby would be the answer that not only Pittsburgh, but the NHL was looking for. Even with a terrible team record that began with an 0-4-5 start, Crosby was able to make the highlight reel.

When he put on the No. 87 for the Pittsburgh Penguins, he brought a new element that fans had not seen since Mario Lemieux's prime.

Since his arrival, Penguins fans have seen many great games and great moments. In this slideshow, we count down the top 25 games for the Pittsburgh Penguins since the lockout ended in 2005-2006, Crosby's rookie year.
