Sidney Crosby scored a near-impossible goal from behind the net and added a pair of assists to give the Penguins a 6-2 win over the Dallas Stars on Thursday night at PPG Paints Arena.

A year ago, there was doubt. Sidney Crosby no longer looked like the best player in the NHL.

What a difference a year makes.

Nino Niederreiter and Charlie Coyle both scored two goals as the Pittsburgh Penguins lost to the Minnesota Wild on the road Friday afternoon by a score of 6-2.

Coyle put the Wild on the board with a goal only 40 seconds into the game.

Niederreiter added another goal on the power play less than eight minutes later to make the score 2-0.

Sidney Crosby had two goals and an assist during a five-goal second period and the Pittsburgh Penguins shut down the division-leading New York Rangers in a 6-1 rout on Wednesday night.

Although the Rangers maneuvered a power play goal 4:22 into the first period to take a 1-0 lead, it was no match for what the Pens had in store for the second.

Rookie winger Jake Guentzel scored two goals in his NHL debut, but the Rangers responded with five unanswered tallies on Monday night to beat the Penguins 5-2 at PPG Paints Arena.

The Rangers (14-5-1) have a firm grip on first place in the Metropolitan Division as the Pens (11-5-3) now lag behind by four points.

Buffalo goaltender Anders Nilsson stopped 46 shots, plus three more in the shootout, to stymie the Sidney Crosby-led Pittsburgh Penguins 2-1 on Saturday night.

Marc-Andre Fleury got the start in net on Saturday and stopped 32 shots. Sidney Crosby scored the Penguins’ lone goal, the 350th of his career, in the 3rd period.

Nicklas Backstrom had two goal and three assists and T.J. Oshie added two goals and two assists to lead the Washington Capitals to a 7-1 third period lead over the Penguins on Wednesday.

The Pittsburgh Penguins may have the Washington Capitals’ number in the postseason, but apparently mid-November is a different story.

What concussion? In his ninth game of the season, Sidney Crosby scored his 10th goal of the season and the Pittsburgh Penguins defeated the Toronto Maple Leafs, 4-1, Saturday night.

Crosby, off to the best start to his 12-year career, is the catalyst for the Penguins 10-3-2 start. Saturday’s win moved the Penguins into first place in the Metropolitan Division.

Bob Prince was best known as the voice of the PIttsburgh Pirates for 28 years, but it was not the only job he had over his Hall of Fame career. “The Gunner” also called Steelers and Penguins games at different times during his career and was part of the NBC broadcast team for the 1965 All-Star Game.

When the Penguins hired Jim Rutherford as their general manager in 2014, it seemed like a temporary move. The former Carolina Hurricanes GM would spend his two years in Pittsburgh, and then hand the keys to Jason Botterill; the man whom several people thought deserved the job in the first place.

Exactly four months after the Pittsburgh Penguins raised the Stanley Cup in San Jose, the new NHL season got underway. While the Penguins will look to become the first team in nearly 20 years to repeat as champions, the season will be sure to deliver plenty of twists and surprises during the regular season.

As much as 80 percent of the Pirates starting rotation could be different next season. Only Gerrit Cole and Jameson Taillon are locks to return from the 2015 crew. With three spots potentially open, the Pirates could look to add veterans through waivers, free agency and trades. Here are some potential in-house solutions.

For years, the accomplishments of the Penn State men’s basketball team have been few and far between. Head coach Patrick Chambers has posted a 23-67 overall conference record in his five seasons, one of the worst marks among Power 5 schools. Only TCU, Boston College, Texas Tech and Virginia Tech have a lower in-conference winning percentage than Penn State's .256 mark during that span.
