Crosby also had three shots on goal and a plus-one rating. He scored his 24th goal of the season on the empty net, and he assisted on Daniel Winnik’s goal in the second period. Crosby has had a quiet (to his standards) season, but he does have 74 points, which is good for tops in the NHL. Brandon Sutter had the other goal, while getting seven shots on net.

It was an illness that kept Sidney Crosby out of action Saturday.

Crosby partook in the pregame warm-up as well as the pregame meeting in which coach Mike Johnston said he looked great but something happened and Crosby was not feeling well when he went to the bench to start the game. Johnston stated that it was an illness and not an injury. Craig Adams took the place of Crosby in the lineup.

The Pittsburgh Penguins didn't provide a lot of details about why Sidney Crosby didn't play on Sunday, merely saying he didn't feel well during warm-ups.

Does "not feeling well" mean an injury or illness? It's unclear, so we'll have to wait and see about Crosby both for Sunday's game and longer term.

Brandon Sutter netted his 14th and 15th goals in 65 games this season. David Perron, Steve Downie, and Patric Hornqvist each had a goal and an assist for the Penguins. Daniel Winnik recorded two assists, giving him 28 points in 64 contests in 2014-15.

Sidney Crosby's 22nd goal of the season helped the Penguins earn a point on Monday night, but Pittsburgh fell 2-1 to the Sharks in a shootout.

Crosby's third period marker gave him 67 points in 62 games this season, but also had a shootout miss during the tie-breaking affair. The Cole Harbour, N.S. native will get the chance to feast on the Edmonton Oilers on Thursday night.

Sidney Crosby sealed Friday night's 5-2 victory over with an empty net goal of his own.

It was a brilliant play as Brandon Sutter's flip pass to the back shoulder with his stick, and then muscled his way around a Ducks defender for the easy tap-in. Crosby also added an assist earlier. Just another excellent all-around game for the Captain, who also won 54% of his draws over 19:21 of work. Crosby is now tied for second on team in goals (21) with Patric Hornqvist, and trails Evengi Malkin's team leading 67 points by just one.

For only the second time this season, Sidney Crosby wasn't able to record a shot on goal in Wednesday's 3-1 loss to Colorado.

Crosby also only won seven of his 20 faceoffs. "We were just flat," Crosby said. "It wasn't pretty there. We just didn't really make plays. To get shots, you have to execute in the neutral zone and sustain pressure offensively. We didn't really do that until the third." With a minus-one rating on Wednesday, Crosby is down to plus-three this season. He's never finished a season worse than minus-one.
Mar 5 - 10:17 AM

Sidney Crosby records two assists in the Penguins' 5-1 win against Florida.

Crosby went through a stretch where he was held off the scoresheet for five of six contests. That's about as bad things get for Crosby, but it's behind him now. He's recorded points in back-to-back games and still has an incredible 61 points in 56 contests.

Sidney Crosby had been in a bad slump as he had not had a point in nine of his previous 13 games before picking up an assist on Saturday. He lined up with Patric Hornqvist and David Perron while Chris Kunitz moved down to the Evgeni Malkin-Blake Comeau line. Hopefully this move will get the Penguins and Crosby out of their rut.
Feb 22 - 9:26 AM

Sidney Crosby got into a fight with Brandon Dubinsky during Pittsburgh's 2-1 loss to Columbus on Thursday.

You can interpret that as a sign of Crosby's frustration if you want, given that he's been held off the scoresheet in five of his last six games. Crosby hadn't fought in a regular season game since 2010. He has 58 points and 41 penalty minutes in 54 contests in 2014-15.
Feb 20 - 8:11 AM

Sidney Crosby lit the lamp twice on Thursday night in the Pens' 5-4 shootout victory over the Senators.
