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 has won the Conn Smythe Trophy for the second year in a row.

Crosby chipped in eight goals and 27 points in 24 games to claim the honor of being the 2017 playoffs' most valuable player. Crosby added seven points in the six-game Cup finals to help the Penguins become the league's first repeat champion since the 1997-98 Detroit Red Wings.

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

The Penguins are now just one win away from becoming the first team in the salary cap era to hoist the Stanley Cup in back-to-back years. 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.

The Pittsburgh captain tied the game Monday with his eighth goal of the postseason at 15:57 of the first period. The series returns to Pittsburgh Thursday night for Game 5. Crosby and the Pens won the Final's first two games in Pittsburgh but the Preds won the third and fourth games in Nashville to tie the series 2-2.

Crosby picked up an assist on the lone Penguins goal and now has seven goals and 23 points in 21 playoff games.

It was an assist on the Western Conference Final series-winning goal. That helper also gave Crosby sole possession of 25th place in the NHL's all-time postseason points list with 157. Claude Lemieux holds the 24th spot with 158 points while Al MacInnis, Mike Bossy, Gordie Howe, and Bobby Smith all retired with 160 career playoff points.

Sidney Crosby's three-game point streak was snapped in Game 6 against Ottawa.

He had three goals and two assists during that span. Crosby was credited with six shots on target on Tuesday night, but he couldn't beat Senators goalie Craig Anderson in a 2-1 loss. "You've got to refocus," he said. "It's a big one so we've got to learn from this one. The last couple games I think we've really played on our toes and generated a lot, so we've just got to keep that in mind and make sure we do the same thing in Game 7." Crosby has a history of coming up big in big-game situations and Pittsburgh could use another performance like that in Game 7 on Thursday night.
May 24 - 5:27 PM

Sidney Crosby had a goal and an assist Sunday.

The Penguins captain is now second in NHL postseason scoring with seven goals and 19 points as he trails teammate Evgeni Malkin by four. The superstar should be drafted high in the first round next season in drafts as his only drawback is his history with injuries.
May 22 - 8:59 AM

Sidney Crosby scored a goal and an assist in Friday's 3-2 win over the Ottawa Senators in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Final.

Crosby picked up the primary assist on Olli Maatta's goal in the first period before adding one of his own in the second frame to give his team a 2-0 lead at the time. Crosby finished the game with a plus-1 rating and five shots on goal in 18:05 of ice time. The Pens captain is up to six goals and 11 assists this postseason. The best-of-seven series is now tied up at two with the series shifting back to Pittsburgh. Game 5 will be played on Sunday.
May 19 - 11:35 PM

Sidney Crosby found the back of the net in Pittsburgh's 5-1 loss to Ottawa in Game 3 on Wednesday.

Pittsburgh was already down 5-0 when Crosby scored early in the third period. He has five goals and 15 points in 14 playoff contests. Phil Kessel and Mark Streit each registered an assist on Crosby's marker.
May 17 - 11:31 PM

Sidney Crosby is two assists shy of becoming the 22nd player in NHL history to record 100 assists in the NHL playoffs.

Much of the controversy surrounding Crosby recently is whether or not he should have been allowed to play despite slamming his head into the boards in Game 6 and looking sluggish afterwards. Regardless, he continues to dominate with 14 points in 11 games this post-season. Crosby will have to be at his best if the Pens want to win back-to-back Stanley Cups.
May 13 - 6:36 PM

Though the Pittsburgh Penguins and Ottawa Senators haven't been major rivals for a while, Sidney Crosby remembers a time earlier in their career when they were.

Pittsburgh and Ottawa met in the playoffs in 2007 and 2008 with each team taking one of the series. "They had (Zdeno) Chara and (Anton) Volchenkov and (Chris) Phillips, and these guys were like no D men I'd ever played against in the past," Crosby said. "Huge, huge guys that were physical. I just remember getting up for those games, knowing you had to earn every inch of ice out there. I got excited for that." That was Crosby talking about the greatest rivalries the Penguins have had during his career and it was a quote given earlier in the season. Now Pittsburgh is up against Ottawa again, this time in the Eastern Conference Final. It might be different than the Senators of a decade ago, but after they got past Boston and the Rangers, Pittsburgh needs to take this Senators squad very seriously.
