Sidney Crosby and Team Canada defeated Russia 6-1 in the Gold Medal Game at the World Hockey Championship on Sunday.

Crosby has now won an Olympic Gold, a World Junior Gold and a World Championship Gold. The Penguins captain scored a goal and an assist in the game. Canada was dominant (and undefeated) throughout the entire tournament and that didn't change on Sunday. Not only did they jump out to a 6-0 lead before Russia scored a late goal, but they held the Russians to just 12 shots in the entire game. Cody Eakin (Dallas), Tyler Ennis (Buffalo), Tyler Seguin (Dallas), Nathan MacKinnon (Colorado) and Claude Giroux (Flyers) also scored for Team Canada.

Sidney Crosby will play for team Canada at the World Hockey Championships.

The Penguins were eliminated from the playoffs on Friday night, and we now find out that Crosby has committed to play for his country. Obviously, this is a huge boost to Canada's roster and their chances of winning the gold medal have increased significantly. Canada already had a strong roster with big names such as Tyler Seguin and Matt Duchene, but Crosby's arrival will drop everyone down a notch on the pecking order. The 27-year-old finished the 2014-15 season with 28 goals and 84 points in 77 games. He had two goals and four points in five playoff games.
Apr 26 - 11:45 AM

Sidney Crosby scored twice to lead the Penguins to a 4-3 win against the Rangers in Game 2 of their first-round series Saturday night.

Crosby scored two goals in a row in the second period, at 14:07 and 18:46. The two markers surpass last season’s playoff total of one in 13 games. Crosby is still just as dangerous as ever, even if his goal/point (28/84) ratio was "down." Chris Kunitz (goal, two assists) and Brandon Sutter (goal, assist) registered the other goals. Pittsburgh killed off six of seven Rangers power plays in this game.
Apr 18 - 11:17 PM

The playoffs have not been kind to Sidney Crosby of late as he has only one goal in his last 19 games.

That's a pretty awful streak for the superstar center and the slump continued in Game 1 against the Rangers as he managed only one shot on goal for the Penguins against Henrik Lundqvist. He will need to be a lot better if Pittsburgh hopes to advance to the next round of the playoffs.
Apr 18 - 9:03 AM

Sidney Crosby had just one shot on goal and a minus-one rating in Game 1 of the Penguins' first round series against the New York Rangers.

Crosby is one of the best players in the league and the Penguins need to him to play a big role going forward if they're going to make it past the New York Rangers. He had a rough time in the 2014 playoffs too with just one goal and nine points in 13 games.
Apr 17 - 11:25 AM

Sidney Crosby did everything in his power to lead his Penguins to victory, but they fell to the Senators 4-3 instead on Tuesday night.

Crosby was a man on a mission, scoring his 28th goal just 10 seconds into the game. Across 21:21 of ice time, including 5:19 on the power play, Crosby won 54% of his draws and sent six pucks towards the net. Crosby is now tied for the league-lead with John Tavares with 83 points this season.
Apr 8 - 12:24 AM

Sidney Crosby was held pointless for the fifth time in his last seven games against the Flyers.

Before you think that he has huge trouble against Philadelphia, think again as he has 76 points against the orange and black in 52 career games. Crosby continues to lead the NHL in points with 81, one ahead of Alex Ovechkin and John Tavares.
Apr 6 - 8:06 AM

Pittsburgh superstar Sidney Crosby scored the Penguins' lone goal Wednesday night in a 4-1 loss to the visiting Philadelphia Flyers.

Crosby's goal was his 26th of the season. It was also the 300th of his career. It was scored at 3:29 of the first period. It was all Philly from that point on, though, as the Flyers tied it at 1-1 on Vincent Lecavalier's eight goal of the season at 17:14 of the first period and then scored three goals (two by Brayden Schenn) in the second and third periods. The Pens played this one without their other superstar forward, Evgeni Malkin, who was a late scratch because of an undisclosed injury. Malkin returned after missing six games because of a lower-body injury against the Arizona Coyotes on Saturday and produced two assists in a 3-2 Pittsburgh victory. He also played Sunday against the San Jose Sharks.
Apr 1 - 10:54 PM

For the first time in a long time, Sidney Crosby enjoyed a three-point game. He factored into every Pittsburgh Penguins goal in a 3-2 win against the Arizona Coyotes.

Crosby's 25th goal of the season was the game-winner, and with two assists, he has the NHL points lead with 78. Evgeni Malkin had two assists in his return and Steve Downie had a big showing in his own right on Saturday.
Mar 28 - 5:00 PM

Sidney Crosby netted a goal and added an assist in the Penguins’ 3-1 win against the Coyotes on Saturday night.

Crosby also had three shots on goal and a plus-one rating. He scored his 24th goal of the season on the empty net, and he assisted on Daniel Winnik’s goal in the second period. Crosby has had a quiet (to his standards) season, but he does have 74 points, which is good for tops in the NHL. Brandon Sutter had the other goal, while getting seven shots on net.
Mar 21 - 11:53 PM

Sidney Crosby and the Penguins were held without a goal in Tuesday's 2-0 shutout loss to the Devils.

Crosby entered the night having amassed five points in his last three games, but was held pointless despite firing four shots on goal in the defeat. He also finished the game with a minus-1 rating.
Mar 17 - 9:51 PM

Sidney Crosby will return to the Penguins' lineup for Sunday's game against Detroit.

Crosby missed Saturday's loss to Boston because of an illness, but the Penguins have announced that he will get back in today. Evgeni Malkin, who suffered an injury against the Bruins, won't play in the game. Adjust your fantasy lineups accordingly.
Mar 15 - 12:30 PM

It was an illness that kept Sidney Crosby out of action Saturday.

Crosby partook in the pregame warm-up as well as the pregame meeting in which coach Mike Johnston said he looked great but something happened and Crosby was not feeling well when he went to the bench to start the game. Johnston stated that it was an illness and not an injury. Craig Adams took the place of Crosby in the lineup.
Mar 15 - 9:58 AM

The Pittsburgh Penguins didn't provide a lot of details about why Sidney Crosby didn't play on Sunday, merely saying he didn't feel well during warm-ups.

Does "not feeling well" mean an injury or illness? It's unclear, so we'll have to wait and see about Crosby both for Sunday's game and longer term.
