  • Penguins' Sidney Crosby: Wins second career Richard Trophy

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/21/17) Crosby won the Maurice Richard Trophy as the league's top goal scorer with 44 goals in 75 games, edging Toronto's Auston Matthews and Tampa Bay's Nikita Kucherov, who both scored 40.

    Crosby is the sixth player to win the Richard multiple times since the award was introduced in the 1998-99 season, but he holds the record for the longest break between his two wins at seven years after winning his first in 2010 with 51 goals. Discounting the lockout-shortened 2012-13 season, this is the first time in the cap era the winner of the Richard has scored fewer than 50 goals, which may be a testament to how difficult it is to score in the NHL these days. In both of his Richard-winning seasons, Crosby had a shooting percentage over 17 percent -- nearly three points higher than his career average of 14.7 percent, which is an indication that his efficiency may regress back to the norm. Regardless, Crosby is back at the top of the hockey world after winning both the World Cup and the Stanley Cup and getting named MVP of both tournaments.

    Penguins' Sidney Crosby: Earns second straight Conn Smythe Trophy

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/11/17) Crosby was awarded the Conn Smythe Trophy as the most valuable player of the playoffs Sunday after the Penguins beat Nashville, 2-0 in Game 6.

    The Penguins' captain didn't factor into the scoring in the team's Cup-clinching victory on enemy ice, but his 27 points in 24 games -- second in the postseason only to teammate Evgeni Malkin's 28 -- and whopping 19:23 of ice time were enough to lock in his second straight playoff MVP award. With three Stanley Cups, a pair of Olympic gold medals and a World Cup of Hockey championship to his name, Crosby arguably stands alone at this point as the best hockey player in the world. And he hasn't even had his 30th birthday yet.

    Penguins' Sidney Crosby: Comes to play in Game 5

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/9/17) Crosby dominated in Thursday's Game 5 win over Nashville, racking up three assists in a lopsided victory.

    Crosby certainly came to play in Game 5 after scoring the team's lone goal in Game 4 on Monday. He dominated on an early shift and carried that determination and passion with him throughout the rest of the night. Crosby now has points in three straight games and has surpassed Mario Lemieux as the Penguins' all-time points leader in the Stanley Cup Finals (20). With Pittsburgh one win away from the Stanley Cup, Crosby has once again turned in another performance worthy of the Conn Smythe.

    Penguins' Sidney Crosby: Provides team's only goal Monday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/6/17) Crosby was the lone scorer for the Penguins in their Game 4 loss to the Predators on Monday.

    Crosby was all alone on a breakaway and fooled Pekka Rinne, sneaking one past him for goal No. 8 of these playoffs. However, the Finnish netminder exacted revenge by stopping Crosby blocker side twice in a row on another breakaway early in the second period. With the series suddenly knotted at two games apiece, the Penguins will look for better results at home Thursday in Game 5.

    Penguins' Sidney Crosby: Records two first-period helpers

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/29/17) Crosby collected two first-period assists -- one on the power play -- during Monday's Game 1 win over Nashville.

    Crosby is up to seven goals and 22 points through 19 playoff games, and he's making a case for his second consecutive Conn Smythe Trophy. The Pittsburgh captain also registered three of the Penguins' mere 11 shots in the game. No. 87 will need to continue frequenting the scoresheet if he's going to hoist the Stanley Cup for a third time.
