Welcome to, the official site of the National Hockey LeagueBienvenue à , le site officiel de la Ligue nationale de hockeyTervetuloa NHL:n viralliselle nettisivustolle NHL.comiinVälkommen till, NHL:s officiella web-sidaVítejte na, oficiálních stránkách National Hockey LeagueVitajte na, oficiálnych stránkach National Hockey LeagueWillkommen auf, der offiziellen Seite der National Hockey LeagueBienvenido a, el sitio oficial de la National Hockey LeagueNEW YORK -- The Pittsburgh Penguins had a two-goal lead and were less than 30 minutes from eliminating the New York Rangers to advance to the second round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.Then center Sidney Crosby left the ice with an upper-body injury, and everything changed.The lead evaporated when Pittsburgh gave up three goals in a span of 2:42 late in the second period, and New York went to win 5-3 in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference First Round at Madison Square Garden on Wednesday, cutting the Penguins lead in the best-of-7 series to 3-2.The home team might have to play Game 6 at PPG Paints Arena on Friday without Crosby, its captain and the best player on either team in the series with nine points (two goals, seven assists) in five games."He's a huge part of our team, of course, but we've shown in the past that we can play without our stars, so we have to do a better job," Penguins defenseman Marcus Pettersson said. We have to do a better job of killing that momentum."Video: Crosby leaves the game with injury after hitPettersson joined forwards Jake Guentzel and Teddy Blueger along with coach Mike Sullivan in saying Crosby's departure with 5:43 remaining in the second period was not the reason for the Rangers' three quick goals that gave them a 3-2 lead with 2:07 left."We've got an experienced group," Sullivan said. Penguins series coverage] Guentzel scored 13 seconds after Trouba to tie it, but when Crosby didn't return to start the third period it became obvious that the Rangers realized they could take advantage.Pettersson was called for interference on Andrew Copp in the offensive zone, and Filip Chytil scored a power-play goal at 2:53 to give New York a 4-3 lead.Penguins goalie Louis Domingue kept it a one-goal game with a save on Chris Kreider off a 4-on-1 rush 23 seconds later.Evan Rodrigues replaced Crosby on the first power-play unit, but the Penguins couldn't get anything going when Ryan Strome went to the box for unsportsmanlike conduct at 6:57.
