Watch: Crosby Scores his 50th Career Playoff Goal

Sidney Crosby became the third player in Penguins history to score 50 career playoff goals with this opportunistic marker on Friday night in Pittsburgh. Only Mario Lemieux (76) and Jaromir Jagr (65) have more in Penguins history.

Sergei Bobrovsky has had a fantastic season for the Columbus Blue Jackets, but he'll probably want the split-second that he waited, indecisively, behind the net with the puck back.

Conor Sheary took it away and it eventually found its way to Crosby who drove it home to give the Penguins a 1-0 lead.

Crosby is the 57th player to score 50 playoff goals, and the fifth active player to achieve the feat.

Crosby later would get an assist on Jake Guentzel's goal to record his 49th career mult-goal playoff game. Only Jaromir Jagr has more among active players.
