      Penguins' Sidney Crosby: Extends point streak

      Crosby extended his point streak to five games (3G, 3A) Saturday with a power-play assist against the Oilers. Despite the point, Crosby didn't play particularly well -- he took a holding penalty in overtime and then missed the net on his shootout attempt. Still, he was healthy enough to play after Friday's cross-check to the head, an encouraging sign nonetheless.

      Penguins' Sidney Crosby: Briefly leaves Saturday's game

      Crosby, who left Saturday's game for several minutes, extended his point streak to four games with a power-play assist Saturday. Crosby was the recipient of a Brandon Dubinsky cross-check to the neck late in the second period. He went directly to the dressing room but returned for the start of the third. Crosby has a well-documented history of head and neck injuries, so fantasy owners will want to make sure he's healthy heading into Saturday's home tilt against Edmonton.

      Penguins' Sidney Crosby: Comes alive against Blues

      Crosby collected two goals in a 4-3 overtime victory against the Blues on Wednesday. The two-goal game -- which included a power-play marker -- was his first since Feb. 12. His nine shots on goal tied a career high. Crosby now has five goals and 10 points in his last 12 games.

      Penguins' Sidney Crosby: Collects point in second straight game

      Crosby tallied a power-play assist but finished with a minus-2 rating in a 3-1 loss to San Jose on Saturday. He registered only one shot and played uneven hockey for the most part Saturday. Crosby went 18-13 on draws, but that's likely scant consolation to fantasy owners. He now has three goals and eight points in his last 11 contests.

      Penguins' Sidney Crosby: Scores pretty goal for game-winner against Avs

      Crosby scored his third goal of the year Thursday, and it ended up being the game-winner against the Avs. This goal was vintage Crosby, as he showed long-absent burst, splitting two defenders while receiving a pass from Pascal Dupuis and beating Avs goalie Reto Berra between the legs. At the time, the tally gave the Pens a 4-2 lead, but Matt Duchene's late goal made it the game-winner. There have been a lot of false starts this year en route to his Sid's stunningly mediocre (or by Crosby standards, garbage) 10 points and minus-7 rating, so it's too soon to say that this is the start of his resurgence, but this is still one of the stars of the game we're talking about -- he'll find his stride.

      Penguins' Sidney Crosby: Points still hard to come by

      Crosby was held pointless despite a four-goal night by the Penguins on Tuesday. He came close on a power-play shot that trickled past goalie Devan Dubnyk but was swept away before crossing the goal line. Coach Mike Johnston called Crosby's performance "outstanding" Tuesday but fantasy owners are looking for more than nine points in 18 games.

      Penguins' Sidney Crosby: Just two goals in 17 games

      Crosby's offensive struggles continued Saturday against New Jersey. He fired three shots on net and finished minus-2 in a 4-0 loss to the Devils. The overall team effort Saturday night was less than competitive -- the Pens just didn't do anything to help starter Jeff Zatkoff. Crosby has just two goals and nine points total in 17 games, but he does have that delicious ability to go off at any time. Unfortunately, the whole squad seems to be skating in quicksand and few of them are clicking. The points will come, but man, we feel for your suffering.

      Penguins' Sidney Crosby: Quietly finding his offense

      Crosby collected a power-play assist Friday, giving him four points in his last four games. Friday was likely a tough game emotionally for Crosby, with linemate and friend Pascal Dupuis again sidelined after missing parts of the last two seasons with blood clots. Eric Fehr took Dupuis's place alongside Crosby and fit in pretty seamlessly. Despite losing 10 of 15 faceoffs, it's doubtful Crosby fantasy owners are complaining with his improved offensive production.

      Penguins' Sidney Crosby: Looking for answers

      Crosby has just one goal and five points and has been held pointless in nine of Pittsburgh's first 11 contests. Through the first 11 games in 2014-15, Crosby had already totaled 19 points (7G, 12A) -- though he finished with the lowest scoring rate of his career (1.09 points per game). Realistically, the downside to Crosby figures to be right around one point per game, though that's of little consolation to fantasy owners who've already used him in daily and weekly leagues during the first month. Pittsburgh recently reunited Crosby with Patric Hornqvist, who helped him get off to his hot start last year.

      Penguins' Sidney Crosby: Gets back on scoresheet with two helpers

      Crosby handed out assists on the first two goals of Thursday's 4-3 victory over the Sabres. It's nice that when he's gotten on the scoresheet, Crosby's done so in the form of multi-point games, but he's got this two-point game, a three-point effort and eight goose eggs on the year. Although Crosby may at a mere 28 years old already be a little past his offensive peak, that shouldn't stop him from being a point-per-game player once again this year. Crosby's never averaged less than a point per game in his career, and you're not well advised to bet on this being the year.
