Even after winning the Stanley Cup in back-to-back seasons, Sidney Crosby doesn't take Pittsburgh's second-round exit in 2018 lightly.
"It's something we haven't felt for a while," Crosby said of losing a playoff series. "(but that) doesn't make it any easier, I can tell you that. You want to be playing still. But you have to evaluate everything and turn the page at some point and get ready for next year." The Penguins had an incredible run so if any team can be satisfied after a playoff series loss, it's them. It seems Crosby isn't though. He has three Stanley Cup championships on his resume and it wouldn't be surprising if there were more to come before his career's over. May 10 - 11:29 AM

Sidney Crosby found the back of the net in Saturday's 6-3 loss to the Washington Capitals.

The Penguins were trailing 2-1 in the second period, but they eventually got power play goals from Crosby (2-2) and Patric Hornqvist (3-2). Unfortunately for Pittsburgh, they allowed the Capitals to score four unanswered goals in the third period (two empty-netters). Crosby finished the night with a minus-2 rating, two penalty minutes and three shots on goal in 19:43 of ice time. The 30-year-old has nine goals and 20 points in 11 games this postseason. He's picked up at least one point in nine of Pittsburgh's 11 games in the playoffs. The Penguins now trail this best-of-seven series 3-2. One more loss would knock them out.

Sidney Crosby picked up an assist in Thursday's Game 4 victory over the Washington Capitals.

Crosby made a small dent in the box score tonight but he has now been on the ice for all 10 goals scored by the Penguins in the series against the Capitals. That is a remarkable accomplishment and it just goes to show how important the Penguins' captain is to his team's success. His assist came on Jake Guentzel's first goal of the night. Pittsburgh's captain was then on the ice for Evgeni Malkin's power play marker and Guentzel's empty netter with 58 seconds left in regulation. The Penguins will head back to Washington for a matchup on Saturday with the series tied at two games apiece.

Sidney Crosby picked up a goal and an assist in Tuesday's 4-3 loss to the Washington Capitals.

Crosby helped set up Jake Guentzel's game-tying goal (1-1) at the 4:33 mark of the second period. The Pens captain also added the go-ahead goal (3-2) before the end of the second frame. Unfortunately for the Penguins, goalie Matt Murray allowed a soft goal to Matt Niskanen (3-3) and Alex Ovechkin scored the game-winner with just over one minute left in regulation. Crosby finished the night with a plus-1 rating, two shots on goal and one hit in 20:41 of ice time. The 30-year-old now has eight goals and 17 points in just nine postseason games. The Penguins trail this best-of-seven series 2-1. Game 4 will be played in Pittsburgh on Thursday night.

The second-round series between the Pittsburgh Penguins and Washington Capitals will begin on Thursday night.

Game 1 will be played at Capital One Arena in Washington, D.C. This is the third year in a row that these two teams will go head-to-head in the second round. The Penguins managed to top the Capitals in each of the last two years.
Apr 24 - 6:57 PM

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.
Apr 23 - 8:35 AM

Sidney Crosby scored a goal and picked up an assist in Wednesday's 5-0 Game 4 win over the Philadelphia Flyers.

Crosby's assist on Evgeni Malkin's opening goal tied him with Mario Lemieux for the most playoff points in franchise history. 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.
Apr 18 - 9:40 PM

Sidney Crosby produced one goal and three assists in Sunday afternoon's 5-1 win over Philadelphia in Game 3.

Crosby opened the scoring on a wraparound goal at the 10:25 mark of the first period.

Crosby has produced seven points in three games against the Flyers and the Penguins have a 2-1 series lead.
Apr 15 - 6:13 PM

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

Crosby tied Mario Lemieux's franchise record for the most career postseason hat tricks. It was certainly an ideal way for Crosby to kickoff the playoffs. He now has 60 goals and 167 points in 149 career playoff games.
Apr 12 - 8:51 AM

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.
Apr 11 - 5:16 AM

The Pens will finish the year as the second seed in the Metropolitan Division.
