The NHL changed the scoring on Kris Letang's power play goal in Thursday night's Game 5 and credited Sidney Crosby with an assist. The second assist had originally been credited to Bill Guerin.
Crosby now has 14 points in the series against the Senators, a personal high. His previous high had been 13 points in the Washington series last year.
Crosby needs three points to tie and four points to break the club record for most points in a series. Mario Lemieux had 17 points in a seven-game series against the Capitals in 1992.
