Sidney Crosby's fingerprints -- and even a little of his blood -- were all over the Penguins' 3-2 win over the Edmonton Oilers tonight at Consol Energy Center.

He had three points as the Penguins improved to 5-1 including 4-0 at home for first time since they opened 7-0 at the Civic Arena in 1994-95.

The Penguins got the only goal of the first period. Crosby from behind the Edmonton net set up Pascal Dupuis who shot the puck under goaltender Jason LaBarbera for a 1-0 lead at 3:08.

With the assist Crosby matched his career best for a points streak at the start of the season. He has points in each of the Penguins' six games. He also had a six-game streak at the start of his rookie season in 2005.

Ales Hemsky tied it for Edmonton 1-1 at 1:39 of the second period when he batted in a loose puck behind Penguins goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury.

Crosby and linemates Dupuis and Chris Kunitz combined to give the Penguins a 2-1 lead at 9:40 of the second period on a tic-tac-toe play that Kunitz finished when he swatted the puck inside the right post after Dupuis' initial shot was stopped by LaBarbera.

At one point when the trio was moving the puck up the ice Crosby took a pass from Kunitz off of his trailing skate and as he was crossing the blue line kicked the puck up to his stick and set up Dupuis for the shot.

Jordan Eberle tied the game again 2-2 for Edmonton when he got a rebound and lifted the puck over a crowd in the crease at 15:59 of the second period.
