Sidney Crosby Scores His 400th NHL Career Goal

Number 87 scored his 400th NHL career goal and added his 401st Sunday afternoon in a 4-1 win over the St Louis Blues. Sidney Crosby is the 95th player in NHL history and the seventh active player with 400 career goals and just the 3rd player to score 400 with the Penguins, joining Mario Lemieux and Jaromir Jagr. Crosby ended his 10-game goal drought. He had three goals in his past 22 games. His dad was in attendance on the road trip and Sid said “Really nice. It’s tough waiting that long when you get it, but it’s definitely worth the wait to have my dad here, who made so many early mornings and sacrifices so I could play hockey. It’s special to have him here and all the dads, a fun weekend. The back to back Stanley Cup Champions are 7-2-1 in their past 10 games and play the Senators Tuesday night. Congrats to Sid The Kid reaching the 400 goal milestone.
