Sidney Crosby may have never played an NHL game in Winnipeg before Friday night, but he looked right at home against the Jets, scoring both of his team's goals in a 4-2 loss.
Sidney Crosby may have never played an NHL game in Winnipeg before Friday night, but he looked right at home against the Jets.

The Pittsburgh Penguins sniper collected his first goal of the game less than five minutes into the first period, when he put himself in good position to take a feed from winger Chris Kunitz and beat Jets goalie Ondrej Pavelec on the short side.

He wasn't done there though.  

The 25-year-old native of Cole Harbour, N.S. dangled around Jets defenceman Dustin Byfuglien with a little over five minutes to go in the first and deposited a backhand shot in between the legs of Pavelec for his second goal of the game. 

In the end it wasn't enough, as the Jets mounted a comeback for a 4-2 win

But Crosby will get another chance at redemption when the Penguins return to Winnipeg on Friday, Feb. 15 (CBC, CBCSports.ca, 7 p.m. ET).
