Crosby recorded a goal and two assists -- one on the power play -- in Thursday's 6-2 win over the Islanders.

EDGE Analysis

Crosby went to work with the game already in hand, playing a role in each of Pittsburgh's final three goals. All those points count the same as far as fantasy owners are concerned, and he's providing no shortage of scoring with 15 goals and 32 points through 24 appearances.

Crosby register a goal and two assists in his first game back from injury versus Dallas on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

Having Crosby back in the lineup allowed the Pens to shake off a four-game losing streak. After the game, coach Mike Sullivan told reporters, "Our team gets a foot faller when he's in our lineup because of the inspiration that he is for our group," Michelle Crechiolo of Pens Inside Scoop reports. Pittsburgh will need all the inspiration it can get if it is going to climb its way out of the Metropolitan Division cellar.

Crosby (upper body) will be in the lineup against Dallas on Wednesday, Wes Crosby of NHL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Crosby is back in action following a three-game stint on the sidelines. Prior to getting hurt, the world-class center racked up five points in his previous trio of outings. Heading into Wednesday's matchup, the 31-year-old is slated to play alongside Jake Guentzel and Patric Hornqvist and will no doubt return to the No. 1 power-play unit.

Crosby (upper body) could play Tuesday against the Stars, Wes Crosby of NHL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Crosby has missed three games with an upper-body injury, however, head coach Mike Sullivan told reporters on Tuesday that the 31-year-old "looks pretty close [to returning]". The Penguins could certainly use their captain back in the lineup when you consider they've lost nine of their last 10 games, looking totally lost on the ice of late. Meanwhile, Sid the Kid has eight goals and 19 points in 16 games this season.

Crosby (upper body) won't play against the Sabres on Monday, Wes Crosby of NHL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Coach Mike Sullivan expected Crosby to be sidelined for about a week, which would put his potential return date as Wednesday versus Dallas. The world-class center did take the ice for Monday's game-day skate with his teammates, but rotated in on defense rather than joining forward line rushes. If Sid the Kid takes on a bigger role at practice Tuesday or Wednesday, it will be a good indication he is ready to face the Stars.

Crosby (upper body) will not play Saturday evening against host Ottawa, Josh Getzoff of PensTV reports.

EDGE Analysis

Per Matt Vensel of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, it looked like Crosby was "skating pretty hard" near the end of Saturday's morning skate, but Penguins coach Mike Sullivan has confirmed that the future Hall-of-Famer will miss the next contest. Fortunately for the Pens, Derick Brassard said he'll be ready to go against the Sens.

Crosby (upper body) skated ahead of Friday's practice session, but didn't join his teammates on the ice, Michelle Crechiolo of Pens Inside Scoop reports.

EDGE Analysis

Coach Mike Sullivan originally told reporters he felt Crosby would be out for a week, so it seems unlikely he will be ready to go against Ottawa on Saturday. Prior to getting hurt, the Cole Harbour native notched five points in three outings. The Pens may get Derick Brassard (lower body) back for Saturday's matchup, which would help bolter their center depth with Sid the Kid sidelined.

Crosby (upper body) will not be in action against the Lightning on Thursday. Coach Mike Sullivan told reporters, "Sid will not play tonight...Right now his status is day-to-day, but my sense is it's going to be a week."

EDGE Analysis

Crosby did take part in Thursday's game-day skate, per Sportsnet Pittsburgh, but a potential one-week absence would see him out for the next four games with a possible return date of Nov. 23 against Boston. With Derick Brassard (lower body) still sidelined, the Penguins will need to lean heavily on Evgeni Malkin and Phil Kessel.

According to coach Mike Sullivan, Crosby is being evaluated for an upper-body injury.

EDGE Analysis

It isn't clear when Crosby may have suffered an injury, as he looked fine while logging a whopping 21:32 of ice time Tuesday against New Jersey, but this is definitely a situation worth monitoring ahead of Thursday's matchup with Tampa Bay. Another update on the superstar's status should surface prior to puck drop against the Lightning.

Crosby tallied a goal and an assist with a plus-4 rating in a 4-0 victory over the Coyotes on Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

The Penguins captain was in full form, as he got his team going with a beautiful backhand goal in the second period. The Penguins used multiple line combinations Saturday, but whomever skated with Crosby looked good. Crosby was on the ice for all four Pittsburgh goals, and he assisted the last one to Brian Dumoulin. After a slow start, Crosby has eight goals and 17 points in 15 games.
