He went on to pick up points 1001 and 1002 by assisting on Phil Kessel's power play goal in the third period and scoring the game-winner in the extra frame.

With his next point, Crosby will become the third Penguin to reach the fourth digit, and will need just 80 more points to pass Jaromir Jagr for second in franchise history. He will also become the 86th player in NHL history to reach 1,000 points and he is just 29 years of age.

Sidney Crosby was held pointless in his second straight game Saturday.

Crosby is only two points away from the magical 1,000 point mark and will get another chance Tuesday against the Canucks. He also lost his lead in the scoring race as Connor McDavid picked up an assist to move one point ahead of the Pittsburgh center. Crosby has 30 goals and a similar amount of assists and is naturally a must play in all forms of fantasy hockey.

Sidney Crosby is only three points away from 1,000 career points.

When Crosby hits the magical mark, he will be the 86th player to do so. Daniel Sedin is next in line among active players at 970 points so Crosby would need a long-term injury if Sedin was to catch him. Crosby plays against Calgary Tuesday and the second leading scorer in the NHL is at 59 points, one behind Connor McDavid.

Sidney Crosby didn't have enough magic left in him to contribute to the 4-3 All-Star championship game win over the Pacific on Sunday.

Believe it or not, Sidney Crosby has never picked up a point in the All-Star game.

Crosby was named to the Game for the sixth time this season but has only played once as a rookie where he did not pick up a point. On the other four occasions he was injured and twice in his career there was no All-Star game due to the Olympics. That's amazing for the 29-year-old but look for him to snap that streak this season in the three-on-three competition.
