Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin each had three-point nights in the Penguins’ 5-2 win over the Leafs on Saturday night.

The world-class centers both scored and assisted twice. Malkin didn’t participate in any of the preseason due to an injury, but he hasn’t missed a beat in the early going, with four points in two games. And, well, Crosby has been his usual spectacular self with six points already. Patric Hornqvist had a goal on nine shots and an assist, while Chris Kunitz and Brandon Sutter got the other goals. Kris Letang set up two markers.

Sidney Crosby had two goals and an assist to help lead the Pens over the Ducks 6-4 on Thursday night.

His assist came off a faceoff where Patric Hornqivst, Mr. Irrelevent in 2005, sniped it home to break open the scoring in the first. Crosby followed it up with a goal from Olli Maatta two minutes later, and added his first powerplay goal of the season late in the second to go up 4-3. Yeah, The Kid's alright.

Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 25 shots for the shutout in Detroit. Blake Comeau and Oskar Sundqvist scored for Pittsburgh; Nick Spaling had two assists. Jimmy Howard steered aside 31 shots in the Detroit net.

Sidney Crosby will make his preseason debut on Wednesday night, but he insists that he'll be ready for the regular season.

"I feel like I'm in good shape," Crosby said. "It's just a matter of getting in some games. I'm pretty confident that it shouldn't take too long to get my timing." He said he would've preferred to get into two or three exhibition games, but he'll have to settle for playing just one now. Crosby is projected to play between Patric Hornqvist and Chris Kunitz.

Sidney Crosby is projected to play on Wednesday, according to Penguins coach Mike Johnston.

Crosby missed the beginning of the preseason due to an ailment. His grandmother recently passed away and he missed Saturday and Monday's exhibition contests for that reason. If he doesn't end up playing on Wednesday, he'll almost certainly still play in the opener despite his lack of preseason ice time.

Sidney Crosby will miss Monday's preseason game.

Crosby's grandmother passed away recently and while it was initially reported that he would probably play on Monday after missing Saturday's contest, that's not the case. Pittsburgh's final exhibition game will be on Wednesday.

Sidney Crosby is projected to play in Monday's preseason game.

Crosby, who had been dealing with an undisclosed injury, was scheduled to play on Saturday, but his grandmother passed away. It wouldn't be surprising if Crosby also played in Pittsburgh's final exhibition contest on Wednesday to help him shake off the rust ahead of the season opener.

Sidney Crosby (undisclosed) will play in Saturday's preseason contest.

Crosby entered training camp with an undisclosed injury and has been slowly recovering from it. It seems fair to believe that the Penguins wouldn't have their star forward to play in a preseason game unless they were absolutely sure he was ready.

Sidney Crosby (undisclosed) felt good after participating in Tuesday's practice.

Crosby stayed on the ice for another 30 minutes following the session's conclusion. He believes in the usefulness of preseason games for veterans, so expect him to participate in at least one exhibition game if he's healthy enough to do so.

Sidney Crosby is the favorite to win the Hart Trophy, according to online oddsmaker Bovada.

More specifically, Crosby has 7/4 odds. Ryan Getzlaf and Steven Stamkos are tied for second at 6/1 while John Tavares (8/1) and Alex Ovechkin (12/1) round out the top five. The fact that Crosby is the favorite to be the MVP isn't surprising and Bovada certainly isn't unique in that prediction. Although he's got a troubling injury history, Crosby has consistently been the best player in the game throughout his career when he's healthy.
