Crosby scored a late goal and recorded seven shots in a 4-3 loss against the Maple Leafs on Saturday.
The Penguins captain continued his hot streak, scoring his eighth goal and 18th point in the last 12 games. He only has two games where he didn't record a point during that stretch and in one of those scoreless contests, he had six shots. Saturday's seven shots also tied a season high. Crosby's scoring pace is still behind where he was last season, but he is second on the team in goals and is back to averaging a point per game.
Crosby stretched his point streak to six games and 13 points (six goals, seven assists) with a goal and assist Saturday in a 5-1 victory over Buffalo.
Sid's 29 points are good enough for second on the Pens behind only Phil Kessel. But hot is hot and Sid is about to overtake Kessel if he stays this hot.
Crosby delivered a goal and an assist Friday in a 4-0 win over Buffalo.
Ten points in four games is simply world-class, and Crosby is now back to a point per game for the season. Sid is back to his old self after some early season struggles, and patient owners are reaping the benefits.
Crosby had a goal and two assists in Monday's 5-4 overtime win over Philadelphia.
Even for Crosby, 13 points in seven games and 10 in his past four is a strong stat line. He's obviously going to be in your lineup no matter what as long as he's healthy, but it's nice to see him producing at a top level.
Crosby scored twice and added an assist in Saturday's 5-2 victory over the Lightning.
All three of his points came with the man advantage. The warmth is returning to Sid's game and he now has nine points, including four goals, in his last six games. Six of those nine have come on the power play. Crosby's shooting percentage (9.1) remains a fraction of his 14.6 percent career average, so it's just a matter of time before his scoring takes a steep climb. That time may be close. Very close.
