NHL Poster Boy Scores Again: Crosby Quietly Hits 400


Outside of Pittsburgh, not much has even been mentioned of Penguins' Captain, Sidney Crosby's latest achievement.  On Saturday, Crosby became the sixth fastest player in NHL history to talley 400 points, reaching the milestone in his 292nd game.

Granted it was 400, not 500 or 1,000 points, but it is an impressive acheivement nonetheless, and particularly doing so in the era of the over-stuffed goalie.

Considering Gretzky scored point 400 against netminders dressed like this:




... and Sid did it against against goalies like this... makes it all the more noteworthy.



Love him or hate him (that is another post in waiting), "the Kid", with all eyes on him, continues to live up to all the hype.
