Crosby finished the playoffs with 21 points, but couldn't power the Penguins past Washington in the second round.

EDGE Analysis

Crosby had another phenomenal regular season, as he recorded his fifth consecutive 80-plus point campaign, while matching his career high in power-play points (38). However, the most significant statistic for the all-star center is the fact that he played in all 82 games, something he has never done in his career (he logged 81 in 2009-10). Injuries have plagues the Cole Harbor native throughout his career -- concussions being the most serious -- but he was able to stay healthy for the entirety of 2017-18. If he can continue that trend into next year, there is no reason to think Crosby won't rack up a sixth year above 80 -- and could challenge for 90.

Crosby picked up an assist Saturday in a 6-3, Game 5 loss to the Capitals.

EDGE Analysis

He has 20 points in just 11 games and his game has ascended to yet another level. Sid's team is down 3-2 in this series, but don't count them out yet. Not with Crosby carrying the mail. And not with perennial choke artists from Washington lining up against them.

Crosby recorded a goal and an assist in Tuesday's 4-3 Game 3 loss to the Capitals.

EDGE Analysis

Crosby sent the home crowd into a frenzy by breaking a 2-2 tie late in the second period, but Pittsburgh came out flat in the third. Washington won the final frame 2-0 to take the game, thus grabbing a 2-1 series lead. The Pittsburgh captain will look to even the series and add to his 17 postseason points in Thursday's Game 4.

Crosby scored his seventh goal of the playoffs and added a helper in Thursday's 3-2, Game 1 win over the Capitals.

EDGE Analysis

Crosby's line with Patric Hornqvist and Jake Guentzel scored all three of the team's goals while combining for seven points. Sid the Kid's rolling right now, so those who picked him in playoff fantasy pools are living the good life as usual.

Crosby scored a goal and added two assists in Sunday's 8-5 win over the Flyers in Game 6.

EDGE Analysis

He wraps up the first-round series with six goals and 13 points in six games -- and that's with being held off the scoresheet entirely in Game 2. The duo of Crosby and Jake Guentzel completely dismantled the Flyers, and they'll now wait to try and do the same to the winner of the Capitals-Blue Jackets series.

Crosby scored a goal and added an assist in a 5-0 win over the Flyers in Wednesday's Game 4.

EDGE Analysis

These were a monumental two points, as Crosby now has 173 playoff points in his career. That's a new Penguins record, as Sid the Kid surpassed a guy you may have heard of named Mario Lemieux. Also, he's continuing to kill the Flyers. Crosby now has nine points in this series.

Crosby scored a goal and added three assists in a 5-1 win over the Flyers in Game 3 on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

In Pittsburgh's two wins Crosby has seven points, so clearly he's been the bellwether for the Penguins. Two of his helpers came on the power play, and you may want to get used to that in this series. The Flyers had the 29th-ranked penalty kill this year.

Crosby finished off Philadelphia with a natural hat trick that stretched across the second and third periods, burying the Flyers in a 7-0 victory in Game 1 on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

It's the third playoff hat trick of Crosby's career, and he certainly appeared ready to make a push toward hoisting the Cup for the fourth time. With Philadelphia seemingly having no idea how to contain him, now is absolutely the time to ride Crosby.

Crosby scored a power-play goal and added an assist during Friday's 4-0 win over Ottawa.

EDGE Analysis

No. 87 entered Friday's game with 87 points for the campaign, so his tally and helper upped him to 89 points for the year, which interestingly matched last season's total. He finished the season in style by marking the scoresheet in eight of his final nine games for six goals and six assists, and Crosby will likely be a popular -- and potentially rewarding -- target in playoff formats with Pittsburgh chasing down its third consecutive Stanley Cup.
