This will be the third straight year that the Pittsburgh Penguins and Washington Capitals have met in the playoffs.
If you like Sidney Crosby versus Alex Ovechkin, then you've certainly been getting your fill. Pittsburgh of course beat Washington each of the last two years en route to winning the Stanley Cup. That's brought Crosby up to three championships over his career while Ovechkin hasn't ever seen his Capitals get past the second round. While Ovechkin himself has excelled in the playoffs just as he has in the regular season, the Capitals lack of success in his era is the big blemish compared to Crosby. Perhaps that narrative will be altered with this series. Apr 24 - 5:19 AM

Sidney Crosby had a goal and two assists in Sunday's clinching game.

Crosby is tied with teammate Jake Guentzel for the NHL scoring lead in the playoffs as each has six goals and 13 points in six contests. It is not an unusual height for Crosby who has been the NHL's best player during his career. The 30-year-old should be drafted high in the first round in most pools next season.

Crosby then broke the record with a goal to give him sole possession of the record with 173 points. He's now up to nine points through four games this post-season. The Penguins will head back to Pittsburgh with a 3-1 series lead with Game 5 scheduled on Friday.

Sidney Crosby's hat trick on Wednesday was the third of his career in the playoffs.

Sidney Crosby scored a hat trick in Wednesday's 7-0 win over the Philadelphia Flyers.

For the third time this year, Crosby scored by batting the puck out of the air. That second-period goal gave the Penguins a 5-0 lead at the time. The Penguins captain then added two more tallies in the third frame to give his team 6-0 and 7-0 leads. Crosby finished Game 1 with a plus-5 rating, four shots on goal and one hit in 16:13 of ice time. This was his third career post-season hat trick, which tied him with Mario Lemieux for the most in franchise history. Bryan Rust, Carl Hagelin, Evgeni Malkin and Jake Guentzel also found the back of the net for the Penguins on Wednesday night. Pittsburgh leads the best-of-seven series 1-0. It's just one game, but the Flyers look like they don't belong on the same sheet of ice as the Pens.
Apr 11 - 9:44 PM

Rather than think about the possibility of a Penguins' dynasty, Sidney Crosby's focus is firmly on the short-term.

"It’s great to think about, but we’re a long ways away from it," Crosby said. "For some guys, that’s the case. For me it’s just about finding a way to win this year. There’s a lot of guys in here who haven’t played a ton of playoff games. You’ve got to keep it under wraps as far as what your expectations are looking forward. For us, it’s focusing on this game." The Penguins will play in Game 1 against the Flyers on Wednesday. Certainly, the Penguins have a long and difficult road ahead of them if they are to win the Stanley Cup, but if they do succeed then it will be their third championship in a row. No team has pulled that off since the 1980-83 New York Islanders.

The Penguins captain now has 28 goals and 85 points in 78 games this season. This was his fifth game-winner of the 2017-18 campaign.
