Sidney Crosby scored three goals and an assist in Tuesday's 6-5 win over the Ottawa Senators.

This was a wild hockey game, as the Penguins blew a 2-0 and 3-1 leads, but they were able to recover in the second period. Crosby scored three consecutive goals in the game. He tied the game at four, gave the Penguins a 5-4 lead and added the insurance marker in the third period. The 28-year-old has 20 goals and 45 points in 48 games this season.

The Pittsburgh Penguins are looking to keep going in the right direction.

"We're going to have to find a way to keep this momentum," Sidney Crosby said. "We want to maintain that same level of desperation we've had. (Marc-Andre Fleury) has been unbelievable here. The PK's been good. We've got some timely power-play goals. We've got a lot of good things happening." The Penguins have won three games in a row. They currently own the final Wild Card spot in the Eastern Conference.

Sidney Crosby shook off the idea that being snubbed for the All-Star Game was a motivating factor for him.

Crosby got off to a slow start this season, but he's bounced back and now has 17 goals and 41 points in 47 contests. "I think with the start I had, that was motivation enough," Crosby said. "I don't really see (the All-Star game voting) as a big factor." Who knows if Crosby was even bummed about the prospect of missing the All-Star Game. After all, being snubbed means he has a chance to rest before the final stretch of the 2015-16 campaign.

Sidney Crosby scored his 17th goal of the campaign Tuesday night in a 2-0 win over the New Jersey Devils.

Crosby's goal came on the power play with just under five minutes to play in the first period and stood as the eventual game winner. The 28-year-old now totals 17 goals and 41 points in 47 games. Following his well-documented slow start to the season, Crosby now has 10 points in his last seven games.
Jan 26 - 9:52 PM

Sidney Crosby rang up Carolina for a pair of goals, including one on the power play, during Sunday's 5-0 win.

The goals snap his personal five game drought, and represent the second time this month he's popped a pair in a single game. Crosby appears to be heating up, he's now on a three game point streak and is within striking distance of having his best month yet of the season. He now has 14 goals and 36 points in 43 games this season.
Jan 17 - 6:50 PM

Sidney Crosby registered two assists in Tuesday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Carolina Hurricanes.

Crosby picked up a secondary assist on Kris Letang's second period goal, and he also helped set up Chris Kunitz's game-tying goal in the third frame. The 28-year-old has 12 goals and 33 points in 41 games in '15-16.

Sidney Crosby was not selected to participate in the NHL's All-Star Game.

Crosby got off to a slow start this season with five points in 11 October games, but he's been significantly better since then and it's surprising to see him left out given his place in the game. At this point he has 12 goals and 31 points in 38 contests in 2015-16.

Sidney Crosby scored a goal and an assist in Tuesday's 3-2 OT loss to the Blackhawks.

Crosby did all his damage in the third period. He scored the Penguins first goal to cut Chicago's lead to 2-1 and he set up Kris Letang's game-tying goal with under three minutes remaining in regulation. Crosby has seven points in his last four games and three multi-point efforts during that span. The 28-year-old has 12 goals and 31 points in 38 games this season.
Jan 5 - 10:38 PM

Sidney Crosby scored twice in the Penguins’ 5-2 win against the Islanders on Saturday night.

Yeah, he’s going to be all right. Crosby looked like a man on a mission in this one, firing seven shots on net en route to his two power-play goals. He has been on a tear lately, with five of his 11 goals and 10 of his 29 points over his past seven games. Would it surprise anyone to see him finish among the top 10 point producers (he’s 40th now)? Matt Cullen (goal, assist), Patric Hornqvist and Phil Kessel got the other goals. Kris Letang and Evgeni Malkin picked up three assists apiece.

Sidney Crosby continued his sizzling ways by scoring another goal during Thursday's 5-2 win over Detroit.

Crosby now has three goals and six points over his last five games, raising his season's totals to nine goals and 27 points over 36 games. During the month of December Crosby put up four goals and 12 points.

Sidney Crosby was in on both Pittsburgh goals in regulation in a 3-2 shootout loss to the Maple Leafs in Toronto Wednesday night.

Crosby assisted on Chris Kunitz's power-play goal at 5:25 of the first period. Kunitz's goal, his fifth of the season, tied the game at 1-1. Crosby then scored to tie the game at 2-2 at 4:45 of the second period. It was Crosby's eighth goal of the season. His assist total is 18. Suffice it to say that this hasn't been a great season so far for the veteran superstar.

Crosby and the Penguins couldn’t muster any offense in a 1-0 loss to the Jets on Sunday.

Crosby is having a down year with only 24 points in 34 games. Hopefully the Christmas can help him turn his season around. He has arguably been the biggest bust in fantasy hockey this year considering how high he was selected in most drafts.
