Description: Penguins center Sidney Crosby scored the game-winning goal on the power play in overtime as Pittsburgh defeated Montreal, 2-1, on Saturday.

Prior to overtime, Pittsburgh was 0-for-3 on the power play. Crosby could have scored on the power play in regulation, but Carey Price had a fantastic save on a slap shot. Crosby has 12 goals and 32 assists in 38 games this season.

Description: Penguins center Sidney Crosby scored a goal on Monday as the team lost its fourth straight, 3-1.
Insight: Pittsburgh and, surprisingly, Crosby have struggled to score as of late, particularly on the power play. Crosby came into the game with one goal in his last 12 games. He also missed a couple games during that stretch due to the mumps, so perhaps the illness is still bothering him. Either way, it was nice to see Crosby finally score again.

Description: Penguins center Sidney Crosby has the mumps according to TSN's Bob McKenzie.

Insight: Crosby underwent tests for the mumps, which has been spreading around the league, and when the tests came back negative, Crosby practiced Friday. Then on Saturday, he sat out again to undergo further tests. Pittsburgh next plays Tampa Bay on Monday and would really like to have Crosby back, along with all fantasy owners, but Sid's status is up in the air.
