Crosby scored a late goal and seven shots in a 4-3 loss against the Maple Leafs on Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

The Penguins captain continued his hot streak even in a loss, 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. Crosby registered seven shots Saturday, which tied a season high. Crosby 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.

EDGE Analysis

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 had a goal and an assist Friday in a 4-0 win over Buffalo.

EDGE Analysis

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.

EDGE Analysis

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.

EDGE Analysis

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.

Crosby recorded a goal and a power-play assist through 21:55 of ice time during Friday's 4-3 loss to Boston.

EDGE Analysis

This was just the second multi-point showing in 18 games for No. 87, as Crosby has been mired in an offensive funk compared to his usually high-scoring standard (seven goals and 12 assists through 24 games). Considering those numbers likely represent his fantasy floor, patience will probably pay off in the long run for the veteran star, and it's definitely ill-advised to deal him at a discount. After all, Crosby is a hot streak away from lining himself up for a fourth consecutive 80-point showing.

Crosby chipped in a power-play goal and assisted on Conor Sheary's overtime winner in Tuesday's 5-4 triumph over Buffalo.

EDGE Analysis

Crosby's team got plenty of love from the refs as usual, but failed to convert on any of its first four power-play opportunities until the captain finally broke through on the fifth late in the second period. His assist on Sheary's winner 16 seconds into overtime gave Crosby his first multi-point performance since Oct. 14. Crosby also managed an even rating for the second consecutive contest, which is a noteworthy accomplishment for a player that's buried himself in a minus-14 hole 20 games into the season.

Crosby has only tallied three assists while posting an ugly minus-9 rating in his last 10 games.

EDGE Analysis

The reigning Rocket Richard Trophy winner hasn't potted a goal since Oct. 20 against the Panthers, and the Penguins have struggled as a result, going 4-5-1 since then. He'll look to snap his 10-game goal drought Saturday in a road matchup with a Predaotrs team that's allowing an average of 2.73 scores per game this season, 10th in the NHL.

Crosby was held off the scoresheet versus the Oilers on Tuesday, despite logging 21:59 of ice time.

EDGE Analysis

Between the 4:11 of power-play action and the extra session, Crosby spent a lot of time on the ice Tuesday. While the center managed to fire off five shots on goal, he was stymied by Edmonton netminder Cam Talbot. The Nova Scotia native has failed to register a point in two straight games, with his next opportunity to put one in the back of the net coming Thursday against the Jets.

Crosby banked in a goal off netminder Henrik Lundqvist in Wednesday's 5-4 victory over the Rangers.

EDGE Analysis

Astonishing goals by Crosby have become the norm, with Wednesday's tally likely ranking up there among some of his best. What's so impressive is the fact that the center had the foresight to wait until New York defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk touched the puck -- negating a potential hand pass -- and then backhanded it toward the net from below the goal line in order to tie the game with less than a minute remaining.
