In a refreshing change from previous seasons, Sidney Crosby has been in the lineup for every Pens game  so far this year with just 10 games remaining in the regular season. What hasn't changed is his dominance on the scoresheet, as his 95 points in 72 games have him 16 ahead of Ryan Getzlaf for the NHL scoring lead, which almost assuredly will win him his 2nd Art Ross Trophy. Making this more impressive is that Crosby's 1.32 points per game is the 2nd lowest of his career, behind only the 1.26 points per game he tallied as an 18 year old rookie. Not many players can dominate a scoring race when having an off season (by his standards), but then again not many players are as offensively gifted as Sidney Crosby.
