The Pittsburgh Penguins power play has come to life over the last two games.
The Penguins have scored three times on 19 shots over the last two matches and that has everyone breathing a sigh of relief. "I think without good executing you don’t have the time to set up those shots," captain Sidney Crosby said. "[Evgeni Malkin’s] goal is a perfect example against Minnesota there. If he gets a rolling puck, he’s not able to put it where he wants it, might have to stop it. And, by that time, he doesn’t have the shot. ... We’ve had the mindset, and with that things have been a lot cleaner." Nov 21 - 8:36 AM

Sidney Crosby's first goal in seven games proved to be the game winner in Pittsburgh's 4-3 victory over Colorado on Thursday night.

The struggling superstar was pointless in his previous three games before finding the back of the net against the Avalanche. Crosby has 10 points in 19 games so far this season, compared to 26 points in 19 games which he managed in 2014-15.

Sidney Crosby had a minus-two rating in a 4-0 loss to New Jersey on Saturday.

Crosby is having a frustrating campaign as he has just two goals and nine points in 17 contests. It's been an unusual stretch for him, but Crosby's numbers are skewed partially by his season-opening five game drought and we're optimistic that he won't slip into a similar cold streak now.

Superstar Sidney Crosby assisted twice in the Pittsburgh Penguins' 4-3 shootout win over the visiting Montreal Canadiens Wednesday night.

Crosby's assists were his sixth and seventh of the season. His assists came on goals by Pascual Dupuis (second of the season) and Patric Hornqvist (third). Also producing a goal for the Pens in regulation was Olli Maatta, his second of the season. Pittsburgh (10-5-0) ended a streak of 37 consecutive losses when it trailed entering the third period.

Sidney Crosby scored his second of the year on the power-play in a 3-2 win over Vancouver on Wednesday.

It isn't usually news when Crosby scores but this will likely come as a relief to him and fantasy owners who haven't seen him score a lot this season. Crosby showed his elite skill by taking a puck in front of the net and going forehand to backhand to beat Ryan Miller. It was just his first road point of the season. Eric Fehr scored shorthanded and David Perron added his first of the season in the win. Phil Kessel picked up two assists as well.

Sidney Crosby pitched in two assists as the Penguins beat former head coach Dan Bylsma and his Buffalo Sabres 4-3 on Thursday night.

Crosby broke out of his second slump of the young season, scoring his first points in three games. The 28-year-old now has a goal and four assists in 10 games this season, but has only found the scoresheet in two of those games. What is causing the superstar's slump continues to be a mystery, but Thursday night was a good sign for fantasy owners he may be coming around.

Sidney Crosby scored his first goal of the 2015-16 season in Tuesday's 3-2 overtime win over Florida.

The 28-year-old also added two assists in the contest. The points were Crosby's first three of the season. He opened the scoring at the 11:00 mark of the first period and picked up assists on goals from Phil Kessel and Evgeni Malkin. It's safe to say that Crosby is now out of his funk. He will continue being an elite fantasy option going forward.

Sidney Crosby has matched his previous career-worst by going without a point in five straight games.

The Penguins' two-game win streak has taken some heat away, but he is eager to end his scoring drought. "Obviously you want to score, you want to produce, but when you're winning, it's a little easier to go through for sure," Crosby said. It shouldn't be much longer before he gets back on the scoresheet.
Oct 19 - 3:03 PM

Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin are back together on the power play.

The duo were split up for the first game and a half by coach Mike Johnston but the Penguins were unable to score so the two were sent out along with Patric Hornqvist, Phil Kessel and Kris Letang. The result was the same but you have to think that the Penguins power play will be top-five this season with that much firepower. Crosby has been held scoreless in his first two games but he will be a top-three scorer in the NHL this season.

Sidney Crosby said that he's excited about Phil Kessel's speed.

"Speed. I think that's probably the first thing that comes to mind," Crosby said. "He's a threat with his shot and with his feet, but I think his feet kind of create everything for him." Kessel has had some very good seasons while playing with average centers. His offensive upside while playing with Crosby or Malkin is huge.

Sidney Crosby and about eight of his teammates will begin informal, players only, on-ice workouts on Aug. 17 at the Penguins' new practise rink.

Crosby describes an extra oomph of excitement surrounding the team after the off-season moves. "That sense of anticipation, knowing the guys you brought in, knowing they're going to be big parts of the team. … Having that expectation there is something that gets everybody excited to start the year." Crosby spoke to potential new linemate Phil Kessel earlier this month on the phone, helping the former Maple Leaf find a place to live in Pittsburgh. "Hopefully in Pittsburgh, he doesn't have to deal with as much of that pressure," Crosby said. "He can just be someone else on the team. Definitely with the way he can skate and shoot, he's going to help us."

The Penguins opened up the 185,000-square-foot UPMC Lemieux Sports Complex to serve as their new practice facility.

The massive complex will also serve as a public skating rink, sports medicine clinic and physical therapy center. The Penguins had previously skated at their home ice rink, the Consol Energy Center, but will now use this facility as their practice ice. The complex will hold two full-size hockey rinks within a half-mile perimeter; one ice surface specifically for the Penguins use. The players will surely not be complaining about their new addition.

The Pittsburgh Penguins are one of two NHL teams whose top five players will account for more than 50 percent of their salary cap space.

The other team is the Chicago Blackhawks. Evgeni Malkin, Sidney Crosby, Phil Kessel, Kris Letang and Marc-Andre Fleury will make $38 million in 2015-16, which is 53.2 percent of their cap. "You can have one philosophy or another on it, but I feel that sometimes your philosophy is adjusted to the players that you have," assistant general manager Jason Botterill said. "This is the situation we have here. We're very excited about the players we have. It's our job to make it work."

Sidney Crosby joined the "Triple Gold Club" on Sunday when he won the gold medal at the World Hockey Championship.

He's the 26th player to win the Stanley Cup, an Olympic gold medal and the World Championship title. Team Canada posted a perfect 10-0 record at the tournament and Crosby, who served as the captain, collected 11 points in nine games.

Sidney Crosby and Team Canada defeated Russia 6-1 in the Gold Medal Game at the World Hockey Championship on Sunday.

Crosby has now won an Olympic Gold, a World Junior Gold and a World Championship Gold. The Penguins captain scored a goal and an assist in the game. Canada was dominant (and undefeated) throughout the entire tournament and that didn't change on Sunday. Not only did they jump out to a 6-0 lead before Russia scored a late goal, but they held the Russians to just 12 shots in the entire game. Cody Eakin (Dallas), Tyler Ennis (Buffalo), Tyler Seguin (Dallas), Nathan MacKinnon (Colorado) and Claude Giroux (Flyers) also scored for Team Canada.
