3/10/2014 10:27:00 PM

Hot12/21/2013 5:52:00 PM
Description: Pittsburgh center Sidney Crosby had a goal and two assists Saturday to bring his point total to 54 in 38 games this season.
Insight: He's actually slightly behind last season's pace, as he had 56 points in 36 games before suffering a regular-season-ending fractured jaw, but he's still leading the league. Crosby is six points ahead of second-place Patrick Kane and 13 points ahead of teammate Evgeni Malkin and Nicklas Backstrom, who are tied for third.
 
12/3/2013 10:47:00 PM
Description: Pittsburgh center Sidney Crosby netted two goals in Tuesday night's win over the Islanders.
Insight: Believe it or not, it's just Crosby's second multi-goal effort of the season. He's generated at least one point in seven of his last nine games, which is exactly what you'd expect from a former MVP and Olympic gold medalist.
 
Hot10/19/2013 9:45:00 PM
Description: Penguins center Sidney Crosby has recorded at least one point in all eight games this season.
Insight: He has five goals and seven assists over his last four games and seven goals and 10 assists on the season. If Crosby can make it through 70 games, he'll easily blow past the 100-point mark, and he may even hit it if he only plays 60.
 
Hot10/15/2013 9:42:00 PM
Description: Penguins center Sidney Crosby had three assists and five SOG Tuesday against the Oilers.
Insight: Crosby was coming off a hat trick Saturday and now has five goals and seven assists in the first six games this season.

10/3/2013 9:52:00 PM
Description: Penguins center Sidney Crosby scored a goal and took four shots Thursday in Pittsburgh's season-opening win over the Devils.
Insight: Crosby had 15 goals and 41 assists in just 36 games last season but missed the last month after being hit in the jaw with a puck. If Crosby stays even remotely healthy this season, he'll come close to 100 points.
 
9/14/2013 3:40:00 PM
Description: Pittsburgh center Sidney Crosby took a blow to the head in Friday's scrimmage, but came out of it without incident, according to a Pittsburgh Tribune-Review report.
Insight: Crosby played just 36 games in 2012 and 22 games the previous season primarily because of concussion symptoms. For a skater who has posted 665 points in 470 games, the object will be to stay on the ice. So far, so good.
 
Hot5/27/2013 8:30:00 PM
Description: Pittsburgh center Sidney Crosby has been cleared to play without his jaw protector. SOURCE: Penguins on Twitter
Insight: Crosby wore the jaw protector for the first two rounds of the postseason. He already has 15 points in his first 10 playoff games.

5/3/2013 10:15:00 PM
Description: Wearing a special protective mask over his face, Penguins center Sidney Crosby scored two goals in his return to action Friday against New York.

5/3/2013 11:45:00 AM
Description: Penguins center Sidney Crosby (jaw) will make his return to action Friday in Game 2 of the team's first-round playoff series against the Islanders, according to Penguins.nhl.com.
Insight: Crosby hasn't played since breaking his jaw after being hit with a puck on March 30 against these same Islanders. Crosby still finished third in the NHL in scoring with 56 points, but the injury most definitely cost him the title. His return adds more firepower to a team that just blew out the Isles 5-0 in Game 1.
 
5/1/2013 8:00:00 PM
Description: Penguins center Sidney Crosby wasn't able to partcipate in Wednesday's Game 1 against the Islanders. He's still recovering from a broken jaw.
Insight: Crosby has been practicing all week so he should be getting close to a return. Even without Crosby, the Penguins are heavy favorites to beat the eighth-seeded Islanders.
