For most of Thursday night, the Pittsburgh Penguins trailed the Vancouver Canucks and looked to be on their way to a disappointing regulation loss at PPG Paints Arena. That was until Sidney Crosby went into MVP-mode, scoring twice to bring the Penguins back level in the contest and force overtime. Elias Pettersson was equally as MVP-like for the Canucks and eventually secured the victory for the visitors but not before the Penguins could grab a point. [Pensburgh]
