crosby rusty. 1.68 points per game lol.
He was playing on the second line and came in time when the Penguins were on fire. Malkin and Neal will going crazy every game. Malkin's line was getting all the coverage. Crosby only had 8 goals btw in those 22 games. Not the Rocket Richard winner type was he?

How many of those 37 Pts were dominant points? The league will know what to expect from Crosby this time around and they won't be as easy on him. The Flyers-Penguins series really exposed the Penguins' and Crosby's weaknesses. Now they also don't have Staal as the 3rd option at center. Malkin and Crosby will have to carry more of the load than they ever have.
