Penguins' Sidney Crosby: Continues elite form
Crosby registered his 17th point-per-game season with 84 points in 69 regular-season contests.
Crosby also reached the 30-goal threshold for just the second time in the last five years while matching his career-best in game-winning goals with nine. Despite Crosby's high-level productivity, the Penguins once again found themselves bounced from the playoffs in the first round. While Crosby will definitely be back next year and offering elite-level fantasy value, he could see long-time teammates Evgeni Malkin or Kris Letang sporting different sweaters.... See More ...

Penguins' Sidney Crosby: Attending optional practice
Crosby (upper body) is on the ice for an optional practice Saturday, Rob Rossi of The Athletic reports. He is wearing a regular (and not a non-contact) jersey.
Crosby missed Friday's Game 6 loss after suffering an upper-body injury in Game 5 when he sustained a hit to the head by Jacob Trouba. Given his history of concussions, it's impossible to forecast when No. 87 might be able to return, but the fact he's taking a twirl at practice is a very encouraging sign. Look for additional updates prior to Sunday's Game 7 puck drop, which is set for 7:00 p.m. EDT.... See More ... See Less
Penguins' Sidney Crosby: Game-time decision for Game 7
Crosby (upper body) is a game-time decision for Game 7 against the Rangers on Sunday, Dan Rosen of NHL.com reports.
Crosby participated in Saturday's optional practice in a regular, non-contact jersey, but he and most of the Penguins regulars skipped Sunday's (also optional) morning skate. With head coach Mike Sullivan not tipping his hand about any lineup decisions for Game 7, we won't know about No. 87's status until pregame warmups around 6:30 p.m. EDT. Tristan Jarry (foot) and Rickard Rakell (upper body) are also game-time decisions.... See More ... See Less
Penguins' Sidney Crosby: Status remains uncertain
Crosby (upper body) will undergo further evaluation upon the team's return to Pittsburgh on Thursday.
Crosby's injury has been officially classified as upper-body by the team but speculation will no doubt center around another possible concussion for the generational talent after taking a high hit in Game 5 from New York's Jacob Trouba. Based on his medical history, if Crosby is dealing with another concussion, it could sideline him for a significant amount of time, which would require Evgeni Malkin to step into a bigger role to keep the Penguins' Stanley Cup hopes alive....

Penguins' Sidney Crosby: Unavailable for Game 6
Crosby (upper body) was on the ice with the Penguins' skills coach prior to morning skate, but he won't be available for Friday's Game 6 versus the Rangers, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.
It's obviously encouraging that Crosby was able to get on the ice in a limited capacity Friday, but this is obviously still a massive loss for Pittsburgh -- Sid leads the Penguins with nine points through five games this postseason. With Crosby on the shelf, Evgeni Malkin is expected to center the first line with Evan Rodrigues getting a promotion to the second-line center role for Game 6 against New York.... See More ...

Head coach Mike Sullivan had no update on the center's status in his postgame comments. At this point, Crosby can be considered day-to-day ahead of Thursday's Game 6. If he can't play, Evgeni Malkin and Jeff Carter could see larger roles while Drew O'Connor would be an option to enter the lineup.... See More ... See Less
Penguins' Sidney Crosby: Absent from bench
Crosby (upper body) exited Wednesday's Game 5 in the second period and did not return for the start of the third, Matt Vensel of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
Crosby was on the receiving end of a high hit from Jacob Trouba midway through the second period. He took another shift after the play before exiting the contest. The Penguins have yet to provide an official update on Crosby's status, so it's unclear if he'll return to Wednesday's game.... See More ... See Less

Penguins' Sidney Crosby: Scores goal No. 30
Crosby scored an even-strength goal with a power-play assist in Saturday's 7-2 win over the Red Wings.
After managing only one assist in the prior two games, which is what passes for a slump this season for Crosby, the future Hall of Famer bounced back with another multi-point effort. His first-period tally was his 30th of the campaign, the 10th time in his career he's reached that mark, and Crosby has a dazzling 83 points through only 66 contests.... See More ... See Less

Penguins' Sidney Crosby: Sets up two goals Tuesday
Crosby dished out two assists -- one on the power play -- in Tuesday's 5-4 shootout loss to the Islanders.
Crosby set up the first of Jake Guentzel's two goals to open the scoring, then helped Jeff Carter tie it at four on the power play in the third. He almost won it for the Penguins later in the third on a shot that deflected off an Islanders player and past goalie Ilya Sorokin, but the puck bounced off the post and stayed out. Sorokin then stopped Crosby in the shootout to help secure the win for the home side. Crosby raised his point total to 77 in just 62 games.... See More ... See Less
