The 2013-14 regular season ended Sunday night with Pittsburgh Penguins center Sidney Crosby capturing his second career Art Ross Trophy as the NHL's scoring champion.

The Pens' superstar produced 104 points. Crosby, who won his first Art Ross in 2006-07, finished with 36 goals, an NHL-high 68 assists and 104 points -- besting Anaheim forward Ryan Getzlaf (31-56—87) and Philadelphia forward Claude Giroux (28-58—86). Crosby registered points in 60 of his 80 games, including 30 multi-point performances, and never went more than two consecutive games without a point. He posted four-point streaks of five or more games, highlighted by an eight-game run to open the season and a 10-game stretch in December. He also reached the 100-point milestone for the fifth time in his career. Only Mario Lemieux (10 times) has had more such seasons in Pens history. He also became the fourth player in Pens history to earn multiple Art Ross Trophies, following Lemieux (6), Jaromir Jagr (5) and Evgeni Malkin (2). His 17-point gap over Getzlaf marks the greatest differential for the League’s scoring champion since 1998-99, when Jagr beat out Teemu Selanne by 20 points.

Sidney Crosby (upper body) returned to action on Wednesday April 9.

Crosby missed Sunday's contests, ending his chances of playing in 82 games. He had an assist in 22:22 minutes on Wednesday.

The Pittsburgh Penguins are giving an array of players the night off against the Colorado Avalanche, with Sidney Crosby being the headliner.

Crosby is seated at 102 points in 78 games played. The Penguins are labeling him day-to-day with an upper-body injury. The Penguins say it isn't long-term and it's possible it might just be a fancy way of giving him a breather. No doubt, this could be a big deal for fantasy owners hoping that the 102-point man might swing a weekly head-to-head match.

Sidney Crosby had two assists in the Penguins' 4-2 win over the Jets on Thursday night.

The two points help Crosby top 100 points for the first time since the 2009-10 season and fifth time in his career. The shoo-in for the Hart Trophy has points in six straight games, good for 36 goals and 102 points on the year. The goal scorers for the Penguins included Beau Bennett, Craig Adams, Paul Martin and Brian Gibbons.

Sidney Crosby tallied his 100th point of the season on Tuesday night, giving him 36 goals and 64 assists so far in 2013-14.

Only six players have accomplished this feat in the past seven seasons. Crosby has done it twice, Evgeni Malkin and Alex Ovechkin three times, Daniel Sedin, Henrik Sedin as well as Nicklas Backstrom.

Barring an injury, Sidney Crosby will not get a game off before the end of the regular season.

Crosby has a chance of playing in all 82 games for the first time in his career and after all the injuries he's endured, Penguins coach Dan Bylsma doesn't want to stand in the way of that. "I think Sid remembers too well not playing all the games in a season and, I think, cherishes playing every game," Bylsma said. "Whether it's 82 or 78, he's been there for us all year long. I got a plaque for playing all 82 games one time. I used it in the winter to make sure my tires didn't slide in the driveway."
Apr 1 - 12:39 PM

Sidney Crosby scored a pair of goals in the final five minutes, helping the Pittsburgh Penguins to a 4-1 victory over the visiting Chicago Blackhawks on Sunday night.

Crosby's goals were his 35th and 36th of the season. His second goal was into an empty net. But the big news in this game was the Blackhawks' loss of their superstar captain, Jonathan Toews, who left in the second period after he was hit hard by Pittsburgh defenseman Brooks Orpik. Toews left the game favoring his arm. The other Pittsburgh scorers, by the way, were James Neal (24th) and Lee Stempniak (11th).
Mar 30 - 10:27 PM

Sidney Crosby notched his league leading 63rd assist of the season on Friday night, helping the Penguins clinch a playoff spot by beating Columbus 2-1.

Crosby is on a three game point streak and has six points in his past five games. The Art Ross Trophy awarded to the NHL’s top scorer is nearly inevitable, as Crosby is at 97 points on the season while second place Ryan Getzlaf is at 79 with 10 games to go. The Penguins have a 13 point lead on the 2nd place New York Rangers in the Metropolitan Division.
Mar 28 - 9:48 PM

Sidney Crosby had an assist in Pittsburgh's 3-2 loss on Tuesday.

Crosby is running away with the Art Ross Trophy with 34 goals and 95 points in 72 games this season. It seems likely that he will be the only player to reach the century mark this season.
Mar 26 - 10:40 AM

Sunday's loss by the Penguins to the Blues could provide an early look at the Stanley Cup Final.

The two teams are at a minimum, a top two team in their respective conferences. "That's too far ahead right now," Sidney Crosby said about the future matchup. "If the last couple of games are any indication of the way the teams would match up in the playoffs, I think it's pretty physical." The Penguins dropped a 1-0 decision to the Blues Sunday.
Mar 24 - 8:08 AM

Sidney Crosby had a goal and two assists in Pittsburgh's 4-3 overtime win over the Tampa Bay Lightning.

All of his points came on Pittsburgh's power play. Crosby has registered six points in his past five games, but all of them have come in two contests. He leads the league with 94 points in 70 games this year.
Mar 22 - 4:22 PM

Penguins coach Dan Bylsma thinks Sidney Crosby is the easy choice to win the Hart Trophy this season.

"I don't think there's any question," Bylsma said. "I'm not sure there was last year. He didn't play as many games as he would have liked. I still thought he distinguished himself as the MVP last season. This season, I don't think it's even close. I think there's no question. I think he's skating away with it." Crosby has 91 points in 69 games. No one else is even close to him in the scoring race and while the player with the most points doesn't always win, it certainly makes a difference.
Mar 21 - 10:34 AM

Sidney Crosby recorded two goals and an assist for the Penguins in a 5-1 win over the Stars on Tuesday night.

Sid the Kid really has no competition for the scoring title at the moment, as he pushes his season total to 91 with no other NHLer above 73. Barring injury, Crosby appears to be well on his way to posting his fifth career 100-point season. Chris Kunitz and Lee Stempniak also chipped in with a goal and an assist apiece in the victory while Brandon Sutter added an insurance marker of his own.
Mar 18 - 10:39 PM

Since breaking into the NHL in 2005, Sidney Crosby has never managed to turn in a complete season.

He's had to miss games in every previous season. This season, however, things may change for him. He has a chance to turn in all 82 games. He came close previously, appearing in 81 games in his rookie season and again in 2009-10, but always has had at least one lost-time injury. But he has dressed for each of the Penguins' first 66 games -- including a 4-0 loss to Philadelphia Saturday at Wells Fargo Center -- this season and has a realistic shot at playing in all 82. What's more, he played in all six of Canada's games at the Olympics in Sochi, Russia. That means Crosby, who averaged just 33 games the past three seasons because of injuries, could appear in 88 before the playoffs begin in mid-April.
