Sidney Crosby scored two goals, including the game-winner, against the Florida Panthers in a 4-3 victory on Saturday.

Crosby being Crosby. He scored the game's first goal before scoring the game-winning goal in the third period. The superstar has three goals and eight points in six games. We don't need to tell you about him being a consistent point producer and unless the Penguins have the night off, you have business not starting him on your fantasy team.

Sidney Crosby picked up a goal and an assist in Wednesday's 5-4 overtime loss to the St. Louis Blues.

It was a special night for the Penguins, as they raised their 2017 Stanley Cup banner prior to the start of the game. Unfortunately for them, that didn't give them enough of a boost to win. Crosby registered the primary assist on Justin Schultz's first-period goal that gave the Pens a 1-0 lead at the time. The Blues responded by going up 2-1 and 4-2 before Crosby cut the lead to 3-2 in the third period and teammate Conor Sheary forced overtime. In the extra frame, it was Alex Pietrangelo that gave St. Louis the win. Crosby has been a dominant force for over a decade and that will continue this season. Expect him to finish as one of the top two scoring leaders this season.

Sidney Crosby scored a goal and an assist in Wednesday's 5-4 win over the Buffalo Sabres.

Crosby is widely regarded as the second overall pick in most fantasy drafts behind Connor McDavid. The Penguins captain had 44 goals and 89 points in 75 games last season. Expect more quality production from him in 2017-18. Crosby has registered at least 84 points in each of his last four seasons.

Sidney Crosby understands what turning 30 means for most NHLers, but getting older doesn't concern him.

"It's just a number," he said. "Just a number to me." Crosby has accomplished a great deal recently and his success in the past 26-plus months has been well-documented. He is also just the eighth player to post 1,000 points and win three Stanley Cups before hitting the age of 30. "He's at the peak right now and he's got a number of years left at his peak because he has taken care of himself so well and because he knows his body better than ever now," said Penguins assistant Mark Recchi. Crosby is far from being done and believes the Penguins can three-peat as Stanley Cup champions in 2017-18. "We're going to training camp with that in mind," said the Pittsburgh captain. "It'll be a big challenge, but why not?"

Sidney Crosby turned 30 years of age Monday.

Crosby just finished celebrating over the weekend with the Stanley Cup. He took the trophy around his home province of Nova Scotia with stops at a children's hospital, a veterans' hospital and on the docks outside his house. The Penguins' captain has won three Cup titles. He has also captured the Art Ross Trophy twice, the Hart Trophy twice, the Maurice "Rocket" Richard Trophy twice, the Conn Smythe Trophy twice and the Lester B. Pearson Award/Ted Lindsay Award three times. Crosby has compiled 382 goals and 1,027 points in 782 career games. Happy Birthday, Sid!

Sidney Crosby has built quite the trophy case.

Crosby has won the Stanley Cups three times and he has been named the Conn Smythe Trophy winner in each of the last two years. Crosby is also a two-time Hart Trophy winner, a two-time Art Ross Trophy recipient and a two-time winner of the Rocket Richard Trophy. He has enjoyed plenty of success with Team Canada as well with two Olympic gold medals, a World Cup of Hockey championship title, a World Junior Tournament gold and a World Championship. Crosby's decorated career was hindered by concussion issues, but he has arguably played the best hockey of his career lately. He has a chance to add some more hardware at the upcoming NHL Awards, where he is nominated for another Hart Trophy and the Ted Lindsay Award.

Sidney Crosby registered three assists in Pittsburgh's 6-0 win over Nashville in Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Final.

Crosby helped set up Justin Schultz's goal in the first period, Conor Sheary's marker in the second frame and Phil Kessel's goal in the third period. The Pens captain finished the game with a plus-2 rating, two penalty minutes and three shots on goal in 18:06 of ice time. Crosby is up to eight goals and 27 points in 23 games this postseason. If the Pens win the cup again, there's a decent chance Crosby will be awarded the Conn Smythe Trophy as playoff MVP. Game 6 will be played in Nashville on Sunday night.
