Penguins' Sidney Crosby: Goal and assist in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crosby scored a goal on three shots and dished an assist in Thursday's 8-4 win over the Sabres.

Crosby had a hand in a Brian Dumoulin tally in the second period before scoring one of his own in the third. The 33-year-old Crosby has racked up six points in his last three outings. The star center is up to 24 goals, 62 points, 159 shots on net and a plus-8 rating in 54 appearances.

Penguins' Sidney Crosby: Three-point burst Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crosby scored twice on four shots, supplied an assist and added two PIM in Tuesday's 7-3 win over the Flyers.

Crosby tallied in the second period and again in the third before adding a power-play helper on John Marino's late tally. The 33-year-old Crosby is up to 23 goals, 60 points, 156 shots on net and a plus-7 rating through 53 outings. The superstar center has never finished under a point-per-game pace in his career.

Penguins' Sidney Crosby: Lights lamp with man advantage
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crosby scored a power-play goal on four shots in Monday's 7-2 loss to Philadelphia.

Crosby's goal early in the third period salvaged an otherwise rough night for fantasy managers; the Pittsburgh captain was minus-4 and won just four of 19 faceoff attempts (21.1 percent). Crosby's goal was his first in five games and gave him 21 on the year.

Penguins' Sidney Crosby: Delivers helper in victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crosby recorded a primary assist Sunday in a 1-0 win over the Bruins.

There wasn't much action in the contest until the third period, when Crosby set up a neat one-timer to Jake Guentzel. The future Hall of Famer stretched his point streak to four games with the late apple, and he's still gleaming from Saturday's win over the Devils in which Crosby scored and set a franchise record with his 13th campaign of 20 or more goals.

Penguins' Sidney Crosby: Rewrites record books
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crosby lit the lamp on three shots across 19:48 of ice time in Saturday's 4-2 win over New Jersey.

With his 20th goal of the season Saturday, Crosby became the first player in team history to score at least 20 goals in 13 NHL seasons. The record surpassed Mario Lemieux and his teammate Evgeni Malkin, both of whom have 12 such seasons. Crosby continues to produce at a high level, recording 55 points across 47 games this season. The 33-year-old is currently on a three-game point streak, and he'll have an opportunity to extend that streak in Sunday's game against Boston.

Penguins' Sidney Crosby: Another two-point effort against NJ
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crosby had a goal and an assist in Thursday's 5-1 win over the Devils.

Crosby matched his output from Tuesday's win over New Jersey, this time opening the scoring just 41 seconds in before adding a helper in the second period. He has 25 points in his last 17 games and will have a great opportunity to add to this extended hot streak Saturday when the Penguins host the Devils for the third time in a row.

Penguins' Sidney Crosby: Insurance goal turns into winner
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crosby had a goal and an assist in Tuesday's 7-6 win over New Jersey.

Crosby's goal didn't seem particularly important at the time, as it gave the Penguins a 7-3 lead with nine minutes remaining. It turned out to be crucial in the end, as New Jersey's second 3-0 run of the third period followed, turning the goal into Crosby's fifth game-winner of the season. The Penguins' captain has 52 points in 45 games, including 23 in the last 16.

Penguins' Sidney Crosby: Sets up empty-netter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crosby registered an assist and three shots on goal in Sunday's 5-2 win over the Devils.

Crosby has remained productive in April with two goals and seven helpers through six games. The 33-year-old center has surpassed his output from last year with 48 points in 41 games -- he had 47 points in the same amount of appearances last season. The superstar has added 124 shots on net, a plus-10 rating and 19 power-play points.

Penguins' Sidney Crosby: Three points including winner
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crosby scored the game-winning goal at even strength and added two power-play assists in Friday's 6-4 victory over the Devils.

His tally midway through the third period gave the Pens a seemingly comfortable 5-2 lead, but two fluky goals by the Devils late made things a bit nervous for Pittsburgh. Crosby has recorded three three-point performances in the last eight games, and on the season the superstar has exactly matched last year's production in one fewer contest with 16 goals and 47 points through 40 games.

Penguins' Sidney Crosby: Three-point effort in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crosby scored a short-handed goal and added two assists, one on the power play, in Saturday's 7-5 loss to the Bruins.

It's Crosby's fifth multi-point performance in the last eight games, a blistering stretch during which he's amassed four goals and 14 points. The 33-year-old still has plenty left in the tank, and his current scoring pace on the season would have him teasing another 100-point campaign over a full 82 games.

Penguins' Sidney Crosby: On offensive tear
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crosby registered a goal and an assist, both on the power play, in Saturday's 6-3 win over the Islanders. He also won 15 of 24 faceoffs (62.5 percent).

Crosby gave the Penguins a 3-0 lead early in the second period, banking a shot off of New York defenseman Scott Mayfield in the blue paint. Then he set up a Bryan Rust tally just under two minutes later, the first of three goals by Rust. Crosby has racked up eight points (two goals, six assists) over his last eight games and will draw another clash with the Islanders on Monday.

Penguins' Sidney Crosby: Pockets goal, assist in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crosby scored a goal and assist with seven shots in Wednesday's 5-2 win over Buffalo. He also won 14 of 19 faceoffs (73.7 percent).

Crosby assisted on Kris Letang's first-period goal that staked the Penguins to a 2-0 lead, then he converted a breakaway early in the final frame to make it a 5-1 game. Crosby has amassed two goals and three assists over his last three contests while piling up 14 shots. The 33-year-old leads the Penguins in points (32) and assists (20) and has gone back-to-back games without a point just twice all season.

Penguins' Sidney Crosby: Tallies only goal in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crosby scored a goal on four shots and dished out a pair of hits in Sunday's 2-1 overtime loss to New Jersey. He also won 16 of 27 faceoffs (59.3 percent).

Crosby got the Penguins on the board in a hurry, depositing a one-timer from along the goal line to finish off a pretty passing play just 3:37 into the game. The goal was Crosby's 12th tally of the season, with nine of those coming at even strength. Crosby, 33, leads Pittsburgh in points (32) and assists (20) while averaging his customary 20-plus minutes of ice time per night.

Penguins' Sidney Crosby: Two helpers against Devils
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crosby picked up two assists, one on the power play, in Saturday's 3-1 win over the Devils.

The Pens' top line took control of the contest down the stretch, as Crosby, Bryan Rust and Jake Guentzel teamed up for the final two goals of the afternoon. On the season, Crosby has 11 goals and 31 points through 30 games.

Penguins' Sidney Crosby: Point streak at seven games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crosby tallied a goal and dished out two assists in Monday's 4-1 win over the Bruins. He also had three shots and two PIM.

Crosby scored the eventual winner when he hammered a one-timer past Jaroslav Halak from a bad angle late in the first period. He added a pair of helpers on goals by Evgeni Malkin (PP) and Jake Guentzel over the final 40 minutes. Crosby extended his point streak to seven games -- covering the entirety of March so far -- and has racked up four goals and seven assists during that stretch. He'll try to keep it alive in Tuesday's rematch with the Bruins.

Penguins' Sidney Crosby: Two points in Tuesday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crosby scored an empty-net goal and added an assist in Tuesday's 4-2 win over the Rangers.

His first-period helper on Jake Guentzel's tally extended Crosby's current point streak to four games. The 33-year-old hasn't gone more than two games all season without a point, but Crosby also hasn't posted many huge nights, leaving him with nine goals and 24 points through 24 contests, numbers which would be the worst point-per-game pace of his career if he doesn't find a higher gear.

Penguins' Sidney Crosby: Tallies in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crosby scored a goal on three shots and added two PIM in Sunday's 5-1 win over the Rangers.

Crosby finished off a run of three goals in 61 seconds late in the first period. His eighth goal of the season put the Penguins ahead 3-1. The 33-year-old center has racked up 22 points, 65 shots on net and a plus-2 rating through 23 games.

Penguins' Sidney Crosby: Sparks power play in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crosby notched two power-play assists in Saturday's 4-3 win over the Flyers.

He had a hand in each of Pittsburgh's first two tallies, giving Crosby his sixth multi-point performance of the season. The future Hall of Famer isn't quite on his usual scoring pace, managing seven goals and 21 points through 22 contests, but even when he isn't locked in, the 33-year-old is still plenty productive.

Penguins' Sidney Crosby: Activated off protocols list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crosby has been activated off the NHL's COVID-19 protocols list and is expected to return to the lineup Thursday against the Flyers.

Crosby's placement on the league's COVID-19 list must have been related to a close contact, as he's been activated just two days after landing in the NHL's protocols. The 33-year-old pivot, who's racked up seven goals and 18 points through 20 games, should return to a top-six role as well as a spot on one of Pittsburgh's power-play units Thursday.

March 4, 2021 10:44 AM
Penguins' Sidney Crosby: Unavailable against Flyers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crosby (COVID-19 protocols) will not be in the lineup versus Philadelphia on Wednesday as he remains in the league's COIVD-19 protocol. Coach Mike Sullivan told reporters, "Sid and Todd Reirden are still in the COVID protocol."

Crosby will be sidelined for his second straight contest as a result of his placement on the league's COVID-19 list. The elite center's spot on the top line will continue to be filled by Evgeni Malkin while Jared McCann slides up into a top-six role. Prior to his absence, Crosby racked up seven goals on 56 shots and 11 assists in 20 contests and will look to continue pushing the attack once cleared to return.
