Crosby Lifts Penguins Past Blue Jackets, Stars Get Wild OT Win Over Red Wings

Jonathan Grant | January 22nd, 2022

Sidney Crosby might be a little older than he was when he was at his best, but make no mistake about it: he can still play. He showed that on Friday night as he dominated the Columbus Blue Jackets in Pittsburgh’s 5-2 win on the road. The Penguins’ fourth consecutive win largely came as a result of his play as he assisted for the first goal of the game before the team went behind and then proceeded to score three of the next four goals to finish with a hat trick.

It was his 15th career hatty and kept his team firmly entrenched in the race to be atop the Metropolitan Division. In another action, the Dallas Stars won a wild back-and-forth encounter over the Detroit Red Wings by a score of 5-4 in overtime. Roope Hintz proved to be the hero, scoring the winner with less than three minutes left in the game, and he also had an assist on the game-tying goal with just over a minute to go in regulation to set it all up. Detroit was up 3-2 and 4-3 at two different stages and was so close to finishing it out, but ultimately Hintz took over and allowed Dallas a big morale-boosting ‘W.’
