The score?

Four for the Pittsburgh Penguins, three for the Calgary Flames.

The difference?

Simple. Sidney Crosby.

The best hockey player on the planet put on a show Saturday afternoon, collecting three points — a goal and a pair of assists — as the injury-riddled Penguins posted a 4-3 victory over the Flames at Consol Energy Center.

“That's one where we could have easily had a different fate,” said Flames centre Joe Colborne. “But that's Sidney Crosby for you, too. He doesn't miss many of those opportunities that he gets. He's the best player in the world for a reason.”
