  • Penguins' Sidney Crosby: Scores twice in Game 1 win

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/27/17) Crosby scored twice in Thursday's series opener against the Capitals.

    Crosby's two goals were instrumental in this 3-2 road win. Both came at even strength in the first 1:04 of the second period, as this battle of top-five regular season power-play units surprisingly produced zero goals on special teams. Crosby now has four goals and five assists over the past five games after being held off the scoresheet in his 2017 postseason debut.

    Penguins' Sidney Crosby: Assists in Game 3 win

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/16/17) Crosby set up a pair of goals Sunday, including the overtime game-winner against the Blue Jackets.

    After picking the Columbus defense apart in the offensive zone, Crosby dished the puck in front of the Columbus net to a waiting Jake Guentzel, who then beat goalie Sergei Bobrovsky for the game-winning score. Crosby has a goal and four assists in the last two playoff games after going scoreless in Game 1. He logged his second highest ice time (25:25) of the season Sunday, but will get plenty of time to rest if Pittsburgh completes its series sweep Tuesday.

    Penguins' Sidney Crosby: Leads charge in Game 2 win

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/14/17) Crosby scored a goal, added two assists and fired five shots on net during Friday's Game 2 win over Columbus.

    After an underwhelming Game 1 showing (minus-1 rating with just one shot on net), Crosby rebounded in a big way Friday. He's the No. 1 cog for the Pittsburgh attack and remains an elite fantasy option night in and night out.

    Penguins' Sidney Crosby: Average results against Blue Jackets

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/12/17) Crosby, who will skate on a line with Jake Guentzel and Conor Sheary, tallied six assists but was held without a goal in a playoff matchup with Columbus in 2013-14.

    He'll be hounded all over the ice by Brandon Dubinsky. Crosby totaled three points (one goal, two assists) in four games against the Blue Jackets in 2016-17; he has "only" seven goals and 25 points in 21 career regular-season contests while facing the boys from Columbus. He'll likely pick up his fair share of points, of course.

    Penguins' Sidney Crosby: Out of Sunday's regular-season finale

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/9/17) Crosby will not play Sunday against the Rangers, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.

    He scored his league-leading 44th goal Saturday, giving him 89 points in 75 games. Crosby also blocked a season-high three shots against the Leafs. Although he risked injury with his shot blocking, the center was not injured Saturday and is simply resting before the start of the playoffs.
