Crosby ranks fifth all-time in points per game, but is the only player in the top 10 from the current era, an era where the game is designed for less scoring. The Penguins' captain continues to produce.

Weekly Metropolitan Division Snapshot: 2/19 - 2/25

It was another action filled week in the Metropolitan Division with some teams switching spots in the standings. This past week saw Pittsburgh and the Islanders jump over Columbus and Philadelphia respectively, Sidney Crosby earn his 1,000th career point, and the Islanders and Devils both earn a couple of wins and losses. Standings from NHL.com Let's focus on how the top 4 teams in the division did last week. Washington continues to sit comfortably atop the division despite only playing once last week. They dropped a 3-2 shootout decision to Detroit on Saturday....

Wings Blow Lead Late, Beat Capitals in Shootout

Wings Blow Lead Late, Beat Capitals in Shootout

Hello folks and welcome back for another edition of Red Wings hockey! I sure am glad to finally start wrapping up this nightmare portion of our schedule. This stretch of 7 games has taken its toll on the Wings. Entering this afternoon’s game against the Caps we had gone a dismal 0-4-1 in our last 5. Granted, each of the teams we’ve played is gunning for the President’s Trophy, save St. Louis, but still. And think about this: when the puck dropped at 2:00PM this afternoon against Alex Ovechkin and the Capitals, the Wings had only 25 hours before they’d be facing Sidney Crosby and the...

Evgeni Malkin notches 500 assists

Evgeni Malkin notches 500 assists

Yet another Penguins milestone reached. The Pittsburgh Penguins have had a pretty massive milestone to focus on as of late, waiting for Sidney Crosby to finally hit 1,000 points in his career. And he did it during Kris Letang’s 600th game! Two milestones. Well, you know about how events and the like come in threes? Evgeni Malkin recorded his 500th assist against the Blue Jackets, and so: another milestone achieved. He’s the fourth Penguin to do it, after Mario Lemieux, Jaromir Jagr, and, of course, Sidney Crosby. Malkin, in 694 games played, has scored 319 goals and 500 assists, for a...

McDavid’s Quest for the Art Ross

Connor McDavid is fortunate that Sidney Crosby missed the first six games of the season. It likely secured a scoring title for the Edmonton Oilers captain. Make no mistake, McDavid is earning his keep atop the NHL leaderboard, but Crosby leads the league in points per game by a country mile, and by mathematically he would […]

Crosby cracks NHL milestone with 1,000th point

Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby became one of the fastest players to reach a National Hockey League milestone with his 1,000th point, then added a game-winning over-time goal for good measure. The 29-year-old Canadian center reached the plateau in a 4-3 victory at Pittsburgh on Thursday with an assist on Chris Kunitz's goal 6:28 into the opening period. Then Crosby netted the game-winning goal with 21 seconds remaining in the five-minute extra session for the victory.

Here’s to all those who helped Sidney Crosby along the way

110 players have helped Crosby get there, led by - of course - Evgeni Malkin. Twelve seasons and 757 games later, Sidney Crosby has hit 1,000 points. (Well, 1,002 - of course he had to go out and show off after being held pointless for a bit there.) Hockey is a team sport, though. With 633 of those points being assists, that’s 633 points he couldn’t have gotten without his teammates. Of the 369 goals he’s scored, only 14 were unassisted. That’s 988 points that, one way or another, Crosby needed help to get. He got that help from just about everybody. Sidney Crosby's march to...

It was a three-point evening for Crosby, and it had everything we’ve seen before from the Penguins’ captain. It felt only right that the big story of the night belonged to Sidney Crosby. In case you didn’t hear, Crosby scored his 1,000th point on Thursday.
