St Louis (7-19-6) at Pittsburgh (15-12-5) 7:00 pm EST
PITTSBURGH (Ticker) -- The red-hot Sidney Crosby is becoming
perhaps the best player in the NHL, and he looks to continue his
torrid pace when the Pittsburgh Penguins host the St. Louis
Blues on Tuesday.
Crosby, the first overall selection in the 2005 draft, has been
absolutely fantastic lately. The 19-year old has three goals and
10 assists in his last four games. He had a six-point game in
an 8-4 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers on Wednesday.
Crosby leads the NHL in scoring with 52 points, and is the first
teenage player to lead the league in scoring since Edmonton's
Wayne Gretzky led in the 1979-80 season.
The Penguins are 4-0-1 in their last five games.
St. Louis has continued to struggle in going 0-8-3 in their last
11 games, and are 0-2-2 under new coach Andy Murray, who took
over on December 12. The Blues have been outscored, 12-6, in
those four games and have surrendered four power-play goals.
