Sidney Crosby's first goal in Madison Square Garden helped the Pittsburgh Penguins get out of last place.
Crosby scored his fifth goal in his 15th NHL game, and Mario Lemieux picked on a familiar opponent in the Penguins' 3-2 victory over the New York Rangers on Monday night.
After starting the season with nine consecutive losses -- five in overtime -- the Penguins jumped over the New York Islanders into fourth place in the Atlantic Division.
Crosby has three goals and two assists through the first four games of the Penguins' longest trip of the season.
"Every game he gets better," Lemieux said. "That's amazing that he just turned 18 and he's our best player night in and night out. It's incredible."
