BUFFALO – Sidney Crosby has feasted on the Sabres throughout his 10-year career.
The Pittsburgh Penguins superstar enters tonight’s season finale at the First Niagara Center with a 19-game point streak against the Sabres that goes back to Dec. 29, 2007. The 27-year-old has 10 goals and 36 points in that stretch.
Crosby has a point in all 15 career visits here, a whopping nine goals and 27 points. No wonder he said he likes the FNC ice earlier this season.
The slick center has a point in 25 of his 27 career contests against the Sabres, his only two pointless appearances coming Nov. 29, 2005 and April 3, 2007.
He has three goals and 14 points in his last four visits here. He had five assists in the Penguins’ 6-1 win Nov. 8.
Crosby has 84 points, so he’s going to set a full-season point low. Still, he’s tied with New York Islanders star John Tavares for the NHL scoring lead. A good night could earn Crosby his third Art Ross Trophy.
