Crosby gets point in debut

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (CP) - Sidney Crosby's NHL debut was bittersweet.
The 18-year-old Pittsburgh Penguins forward had an assist, but the New Jersey Devils spoiled Crosby's highly anticipated first game with a convincing 5-1 win to open the 2005-06 season.
Crosby set up Pittsburgh's first goal of the season, and their lone goal of the game, at 5:36 of the third period. He stepped out from the corner and feathered the puck along the goal-line to Mark Recchi, who tucked it past the outstretched pad of Devils' goaltender Martin Brodeur for a power-play goal.
"It's nice to get a point. I don't want to look past that," Crosby said. "But you play to win every time you go out on the ice and we didn't get that done, so I don't know."
Crosby helped solve the Penguins' woes with a man advantage - Pittsburgh had gone 0-for-9 until that point - and wreck Brodeur's shutout bid.
