Thanks for the puck, ref.

Crosby is also the 95th player in NHL history with 400 goals.
It was Crosby’s 18th goal this season. He led the NHL with 44 goals last season.
Only Joe Thornton, Patrick Marleau and Alex Ovechkin have more points among active players. Crosby was the top pick in the 2005 draft, and Ovechkin was No. 1 in 2004, but they both were rookies in 2005-06. They have been compared their whole careers, and after Crosby’s goal Sunday, they were separated by only five points (1093-1088).
