If last year's Stanley Cup run wasn't enough proof of that, the goal Crosby scored in Buffalo on Tuesday certainly is. After accepting Justin Schultz's drop pass, Crosby built up a head of steam through the neutral zone, driving past forwards Ryan O'Reilly and Marcus Foligno at Buffalo's blue line and then splitting defensemen Zach Bogosian and Josh Gorges.

But the Pittsburgh captain was left feeling groggy at the end of the match after being high-sticked by Evander Kane in the final seconds, a shot that knocked out several of his teeth. Rasmus would hit Guentzel with the hit that Nicholas Kronwall became familiar for in Detroit.

Despite giving up two goals in the final six minutes, I wouldn't call this one collapse. A Sabres team on the end of a back-to-back isn't going to do much here. In a shot-heavy period (13 shots per team), both Lehner and Matt Murray held strong in their respective nets until Sidney Crosby scored his 41 of the season with just nine seconds remaining in the opening frame. Bonino followed up and snapped a shot through a crowd to beat Lehner just inside the left post.

Penguins coach Mike Sullivan added: "It was a goal-scorer's goal by an elite player".

He was ejected from Tuesday night's game as a result of the incident.

Sheary scored 1:58 later on another fortuitous bounce.

Two minutes later, Sheary scored when a shot from the left wing off the rush banked in off Buffalo's Zemgus Girgensons.

Instead, he... well, mows down Penguins forward Jake Guentzel.

Pittsburgh improved to 11-0-1 over Buffalo in a string dating to April 23, 2013.

When everything is said and done and Sidney Crosby finally hangs up his skates, that goal will be on his career highlight reel.

NOTES: Bylsma said forwards Kyle Okposo (ribs) and William Carrier (knee) have resumed skating and have an opportunity to return within the next week.

The Sabres answered Crosby's goal early in the third period on a rebound from Sam Reinhart, who pocketed his seventeenth goal of the season. Reto Berra made 21 saves in his first start since being recalled from the minors March 3.
