Crosby's nifty backhand seals win

Sidney Crosby skates in the zone and uses a nifty move to slide a backhanded shot under Henrik Lundqvist, sealing the Penguins' shootout win.

What they said after the game: 

"We've done some good things over the course of the year and played through a lot of different guys being out, so, yeah, it'd be nice to have that home-ice advantage [in the Eastern Conference First Round] and make it meaningful," Penguins captain Sidney Crosby said. "Hopefully we can keep going here. It's going to be a tight race."

"It's just that desperation level," Crosby said. "It's getting ready for playoff hockey and hopefully a win like this can kind of solidify the way we need to play and build on that toward the end of the year here."

"I thought [Lundqvist] had a real solid game and I really liked a lot of the things we did 5-on-5," Rangers coach Alain Vigneault said. "We're not going to be perfect. A team like [Pittsburgh] is obviously going to get some opportunities, but for the most part I thought we played well."
