Crosby also registered three assists, giving him his first four-point game of the season. That also resulted in him reaching the 50-point mark in just 37 contests. Jan 17 - 4:54 AM

Sidney Crosby has not found the back of the net in the last five games.

Crosby leads the NHL with 26 goals but his lead is being chipped away and Alex Ovechkin is getting hot and looming just behind Crosby as he is now up to 21. Crosby is having an outstanding season thus far with 46 points in 36 games. He obviously is a must-start.

Sidney Crosby needs 24 goals in 18 games to get to 50-in-50.

That's too much for Sid who is not a kid anymore. He is scoring at an unprecedented pace as is with 26 goals in 32 games and to improve it that much is pretty near improbable. Nevertheless, Crosby has a six goal lead in the race for the Rocket Richard Trophy over Jeff Carter and Auston Matthews as Alex Ovechkin trails by nine.

Sidney Crosby is still the best player in the world today.

Several players have made legitimate runs, even occasional claims, at being the best player in the world over the last 10 years. Connor McDavid, to be fair, appears most likely to inherent the mantle. But only once Crosby's brilliance actually begins to fade, and that doesn't appear to be happening any time soon. Through the holiday break Crosby leads the league with 24 goals, no one else has 20. He leads with nine power play goals as well, and sits tied with David Pastrnak for most even-strength goals at 15. McDavid for his part leads with 29 helpers (leads with 12 primaries as well) and 42 points. Lastly for those a bit more into analytics, Crosby leads with 16.6 Goals Created and 5.5 Offensive Point Shares.
