I’m not a big hockey guy, but I have to give credit when credit is due. Hand-down, Sidney Crosby is the best player in the NHL right now. He currently leads the league with 58 points (28 goals and 30 assists). Last night, Sid “The Kid” extended his scoring streak at 22 consecutive games matching Dany Heatley’s mark from the 2005 season. Crosby only trails Mats Sundin (Quebec Nordiques), who set the record at 30. Crosby has been on an absolutely tear this year. He continues to dominate games as teams are unable to find an answer to him. What’s crazy? At the age of 23, Crosby has already hoisted a Stanley Cup and won an Olympic Gold Medal. By the end of his career, he possibly could be the best player to ever play the game (no disrespect to Wayne Gretzky). No one is playing better than Sidney Crosby right now, and he is my predicted Hart Memorial Trophy winner at the end of the season. Look for Crosby to extend his consecutive games with a point as the Pittsburgh Penguins take on the Washington Capitals tonight.
The Streak Continues
