The Penguins’ Sidney Crosby and Bryan Rust celebrate with Kris Letang after Letang’s goal against the Rangers in the third period Sunday, Feb. 17, 2019 at PPG Paints Arena.

While Evgeni Malkin was stealing headlines with a four-goal weekend, Pittsburgh Penguins teammate Sidney Crosby was quietly piling up the points.

Crosby was rewarded for his efforts when he was named the NHL’s third star of the week on Monday.

Crosby had a goal and two assists in a 4-1 Penguins victory over Philadelphia on Monday and an assist in a 3-1 win over Edmonton on Wednesday. Over the weekend, he added a goal and two assists in a 5-4 loss to Calgary and three assists in a 6-5 win over the Rangers.

Crosby’s 10 points for the week tied for the league lead. He’s moved up to eighth in the NHL scoring race with 72 points in 56 games. He’s on pace to finish the season with 101 points.

Tampa Bay’s Nikita Kucherov and St. Louis’ Vladimir Tarasenko were the top two stars of the week.

Follow the Pittsburgh Penguins all season long.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
