Penguins Sidney Crosby Wins NHL MVP
According to Sportsnet, Pittsburgh Penguins forward Sidney Crosby has won his second National Hockey League MVP award.
Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby won the Hart Memorial Trophy as the NHL’s most valuable player on Tuesday, adding to the Ted Lindsay Award he won earlier in the night.
Crosby scored 36 goals and led the league in assists (68) and points (104) to capture his second career Art Ross Trophy and lead the Penguins to their second consecutive division title.
He had points in 60 of the 80 games he played in (75 per cent), including 30 multi-point performances, and never went more than two consecutive games without registering a point.
It’s too bad Crosby wasn’t able to follow a stellar regular season with a more convincing performance in the playoffs.
