(Newser) – Sid the Kid saved his team from the brink tonight. Teen phenom Sidney Crosby scored twice to lead the Pittsburgh Penguins to a 3-2 victory over Detroit in Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Finals, the Post-Gazette reports. The Penguins finally found their offense after being shut out in the first two games. Now they hope to even the series when they host Game 4 Saturday night.

Adam Hall scored the other Pittsburgh goal, while Johan Franzen and Mikael Samuelsson scored for Detroit. Samuelsson's goal made the game 3-2 with about 7 minutes to play and set up a tense finish.
