Sidney Crosby continues to amaze.
The Pittsburgh Penguins superstar centre produced yet another highlight-reel goal on Wednesday night against the Ottawa Senators.
The Penguins already had Game 4 in hand in the third period, but that didn't stop Crosby from going around Senators defenceman Chris Phillips with ease before roofing one of his patent backhands over the left shoulder of helpless goalie Craig Anderson.
The Penguins went on to defeat Ottawa 7-3 and grab a commanding 3-1 series lead of the Eastern Conference semifinal.
