Sidney Crosby notched a goal and an assist on Saturday in a 5-1 victory over Buffalo.

Crosby assisted on Patric Hornqvist's second period marker before finishing off the Sabres with the final goal of the game. He also had a goal and an assist against Buffalo in the first game of the home-and-home on Friday. Crosby has racked up 13 points (six goals, seven assists) during his six-games point streak.
Dec 2 - 10:09 PM

Sidney Crosby scored a goal and an assist in Friday's 4-0 win over the Buffalo Sabres.

Crosby's goal at 6:38 mark of the first period gave the Penguins a 2-0 lead at the time. He then picked up an assist on Patric Hornqvist's tally late in the third frame. Crosby finished the night with a plus-2 rating and three shots on goal in 16:17 of ice time. The Penguins captain is up to 11 goals and 27 points in 27 contests this season.
Dec 1 - 9:41 PM

Sidney Crosby scored a goal and registered two assists in a 5-4 overtime win against Philadelphia on Monday.

Crosby went through a stretch where he had no goals and three assists in 11 games from Oct. 21 through Nov. 11, but that's well behind him now. He's only been held off the scoresheet once in his last seven contests and he's gotten multiple points in each of his last three games. He has 10 goals and 25 points in 26 games this season.
Nov 28 - 9:20 AM

Sidney Crosby had a pair of goals and an assist Saturday.

Both goals were on the power play and gives Crosby six points in his last three games. He is up to nine goals and 22 points this season and is back on track after a terrible slump in which he had three assists in 11 games.
Nov 26 - 9:23 AM

Sidney Crosby scored a goal and registered an assist in the Penguins' 4-3 loss to Boston Friday afternoon.

Crosby has been somewhat quiet lately, at least compared to the extremely high standard he's held to, so seeing him have a strong showing is at least a consolation prize for the Penguins. Phil Kessel and Jake Guentzel each found the back of the net for Pittsburgh. In Guentzel's case it was his fourth goal in four games, bringing him up to nine markers this season.
Nov 24 - 4:05 PM

Sidney Crosby has just one goal in his last 15 games.

Crosby ended an 11-game scoring drought on Nov. 14, but unfortunately he wasn't able to turn the tide. He's still getting assists, but his 17 points in 23 contests this season is below the extremely high bar he's set over his career. He also has a minus-13 rating, which is staggering given that his career-low for a full season is minus-1. We're still optimistic that Crosby will bounce back and end up with more than a point-per-game.
Nov 24 - 7:36 AM

Sidney Crosby was held pointless for the fourth time in six games after a 2-1 loss to the Chicago Blackhawks on Saturday night.

Crosby ended an 11-game goalless streak earlier this week, and picked up an assist against Ottawa on Thursday, but has otherwise been pointless in four of his last six games. Crosby has six goals and 16 points in 22 games.
Nov 18 - 10:19 PM

Sidney Crosby ended his 11-game goalless drought in a 5-4 overtime victory over the Buffalo Sabres on Tuesday night.

Crosby hadn't scored a goal since Oct. 20 against the Florida Panthers. He snapped his cold streak, the second-longest of his career, in the second period of the win over Buffalo. Crosby even picked up an assist on Conor Sheary's overtime winner. The superstar now has six goals and 15 points this season.
Nov 15 - 12:00 AM

Sidney Crosby hasn't scored a goal in 11 straight games.

Crosby has chipped in just three assists during that span. It's the second longest drought of his career after he went 12 games in a row without a goal in 2011-12, but there were concussion issues connected to that stretch. Crosby feels he is getting chances and the puck will bounce his way eventually. He will look to end his skid on Tuesday versus Buffalo.
Nov 13 - 3:21 PM

Sidney Crosby became the third player in Penguin history to play in 800 regualr season NHL games.

Well you know you're getting old when Sid the Kid has played in that many contests. Mario Lemieux is first in Pens' history with 915 and Jaromir Jagr is second with 806. With decent health, Crosby should have no trouble topping those marks.
Nov 11 - 10:15 AM

Sidney Crosby has gone nine straight games without a goal.

Crosby has just three assists and a minus-seven rating over that nine-game stretch. This is tied for the second longest goal drought of Crosby's career with his longest being a 12-game slump during the 2011-12 campaign. For his part, Crosby doesn't seem too concerned. "There's been some chances there, some posts, things like that," he said. "But still I’d like to generate a little bit more."
Nov 10 - 5:03 AM

Although he had an assist on Saturday, Sidney Crosby is mired in a deep slump.

Crosby has only three assists in his last eight games and has five goals and 13 points in 16 contests this season. Crosby led the NHL in goals last season with 44 but he is not going to get close to that number unless he picks things up in a hurry. To his credit he does have 30 penalty minutes but his minus-11 rating really puts a damper on his fantasy value.
Nov 5 - 8:58 AM

Sidney Crosby had 12 penalty minutes Saturday.

Apparently Mr. Crosby was none too happy about a cross-checking penalty he picked up in the first period and when he left the sin bin, he let the referee know about it. He picked up a misconduct for his misdeed and while he helped fantasy owners who play the category, he did not help out the Penguins. Crosby has 10 points in nine games this season with 28 penalty minutes. He had only 24 last season in 75 games so he could be headed for 50 this season.
Oct 22 - 9:53 AM

Sidney Crosby netted a power-play goal in Friday's 4-3 win against Florida.

Crosby has amassed 11 goals in his past 19 games versus the Panthers. He has found the back of the net four times in his last three matches and he currently has 10 points in eight games.
