The Penguins' Jake Guentzel beats Canadiens goaltender Carey Price in the third period Wednesday, March 21, 2018 at PPG Paints Arena.

This one was impressive, even for Sidney Crosby.

The Penguins star added to his highlight reel Wednesday night, when he tapped the puck to himself in midair, then batted it past Canadiens goalie Carey Price to tie the score at 3-3 with 4 minutes, 58 seconds left in the second period. Crosby also became the third active player with 700 career assists as the Penguins went on for a 5-3 victory.

A year ago on March 31, Crosby scored another eye-popping goal.
