Sidney Crosby picked up a couple of assists in a 5-3 loss to the New York Islanders on Wednesday.

Staring down a 3-0 hole entering the third period, Crosby first chased down a loose puck to set up Sheary, then forced Tavares to turn the puck over which led to Malkin's tying goal. The two assists now give Crosby 100 career points against the Islanders in just 57 career games. It is the first opponent he has reached this milestone against. He is now on pace for 98 points this season. This would be the most he has scored in a single season since he recorded 104 points in 2013-14.

The players have worked out a framework on how to divvy up their share of the profits from the World Cup.

It'll be a classic 70/30 split between those who played and those who did not, with caveats for those who were named to the team but did not participate due to injury and other circumstances. All players who played in the WC will receive between $75K and $80K, Team Canada players will divvy up another $500K with an additional half-million put towards Hockey Canada. Team Europe will share $250K, with another quarter-million split up and sent to each hockey federation represented by the team. All told, the earnings appear to be as much as half of the projected profit level. Original projections were set for a ~$40M windfall and the numbers above would see only a total of a bit over $18M. Though it's worth noting that only the framework is set and not the actual sum. Not that you'll hear too many players complaining.

Sidney Crosby picked up two goals and an assist in Wednesday's 6-1 win over the New York Rangers.

Crosby did all of his damage in the second period as his goals gave the Pens 2-1 and 4-1 leads in the game and his assist Conor Sheary's goal extended the lead to 5-1. He finished the game with a plus-3 rating, four penalty minutes and six shots on goal in 16:39 of ice time. The Penguins captain has put together an incredible season so far. He has an incredible 14 goals and five assists in 14 games. It's pretty clear that he's the best player in the game right now.

Sidney Crosby found the back of the net at the 5:46 mark of the third period to momentarily tie the game against the Buffalo Sabres, but it was insufficient to stem the tide of a 2-1 loss.

Crosby’s goal was the 12th of the season, which allowed him to tie the Jets’ Patrick Laine and break a tie for second with the Rangers’ Michael Grabner. Crosby has scored one goal each in four of his last five games.
Nov 19 - 10:18 PM

Sidney Crosby found the back of the net in Thursday's 4-2 loss to the Minnesota Wild.

Crosby opened the scoring with a power play marker at the 7:53 mark of the first period. The Pens captain has scored at least one goal in six of his last eight games and he now has an incredible nine goals in eight games. Crosby will obviously slow down at some point, but he's the best player in the league.
Nov 10 - 10:31 PM

Sidney Crosby leads the league in goals scored.

That's a remarkable feat given that missed the start of the season with a concussion. Consequently, he's just played in six games, but he already has eight goals. He won't maintain that pace of course, but if he did he'd need only 38 games to reach the 50-goal mark. That would break Wayne Gretzky's record as the fastest player to 50 goals.
Nov 6 - 10:01 AM

For the third time in four games, Sidney Crosby enjoyed a two-goal output.

Crosby triggered the Pittsburgh Penguins' 5-0 win against the San Jose Sharks on Saturday. He now has eight goals and two assists for 10 points in eight games during a red-hot start to 2016-17. Carl Hagelin enjoyed a great night in his own right, racking up three helpers against San Jose.
Nov 6 - 1:13 AM

Sidney Crosby scored both of Pittsburgh's goals in a 3-2 overtime loss to Los Angeles on Thursday.

Crosby has six goals in five games played and eight points overall. Sid has scored in every game except for one now. While that's unattainable pace to keep up, it's heck of a good sign for a guy who hasn't cracked 40 since he scored 51 in the 09/10 season. Kris Letang picked up helpers on both of Crosby's goals. It looks like Crosby is back to being that elite point scorer.
Nov 4 - 3:38 AM

Sidney Crosby had an assist on Patric Hornqvist’s goal Wednesday night to extend his points’ streak to four games as the Pittsburgh Penguins defeated the Anaheim Ducks 5-1.

Crosby has now scored six points in four games since returning from concussion. This was the first game in which he failed to score a goal, however. It is no coincidence that the Penguins are on a four-game winning streak since Crosby came back on the ice. Meanwhile, Hornqvist’s goal was the 11th point and fifth goal that he has scored against the Ducks in their last eight matchups.
Nov 3 - 1:48 AM

Sidney Crosby has been a scoring machine in his first week of action.

The superstar center had four goals and an assist in three games last week. He had a bad start to last season and didn't score his fourth until late November. Crosby certainly looks like he is fully recovered from his concussion woes and should be headed for a big season in the top-ten of scoring barring anymore injuries.
Oct 31 - 10:12 AM

Sidney Crosby contributed two goals in Saturday night’s 5-4 victory of the Pittsburgh Penguins over the Philadelphia Flyers.

Three of the Penguins six victories have come with Crosby on the ice and he has been a contributor to every one of those decisions. Since returning from a concussion against the Panthers, Crosby has scored four goals and rendered an assist in three games. He has done so with consistency, making either four or five shots on goal each night.
Oct 30 - 2:17 AM

Sidney Crosby found the back of the net in Tuesday's 3-2 win over the Florida Panthers.

After missing the first six games of the season because of a concussion, Crosby returned and contributed in Pittsburgh's win. With the Pens trailing 2-0 in the second period, Crosby got the Penguins on the board on the man-advantage. He finished the game with four shots on goal and two hits in 18:02 of ice time. Carl Hagelin and Eric Fehr also scored for the Penguins in this one.
Oct 25 - 9:33 PM

Sidney Crosby will play in Tuesday's game against the Florida Panthers.

Crosby's yet to play in a regular season game because of a concussion he suffered during practice earlier this month. He's expected to play on a line with Scott Wilson and Patric Hornqvist. He's a must-start tonight.
Oct 25 - 6:42 PM

Sidney Crosby (concussion) appears to be likely to make his season debut on Tuesday night.

"He had a really good practice yesterday," coach Mike Sullivan said. "He responded very well. He had a real good practice this morning. Everything's pointed in the right direction that he feels comfortable that he's ready to go back in the lineup. If that's the case, then he'll play." He skated between Scott Wilson and Patric Hornqvist during the morning session and he participated with the top power-play unit. Those are all great signs. As long as there aren't any setbacks prior to puck drop then it looks safe to get him back in the lineup.
