NHL: Sidney Crosby confirmed his 19th season averaging one point per game

With his 82nd point of the season against the New York Rangers, Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby ensured he finished the season averaging at least one point per game, in his 19th season of follow-up.

Syed scored two goals, his 36th and 37th, in the Penguins' 5-2 win. The Penguins are 14-9-3 in their last 26 games against the Rangers.

In NHL history, only Wayne Gretzky has done so much. The Hall of Famer posted as many points-per-game seasons as Crosby.

Since the start of the season, Crosby has scored 37 goals and 45 assists for 82 points in 74 games.

Crosby is just three assists away from becoming the 14th player in NHL history to record 1,000 assists.

Penguins captain Igor Shesterkin didn't just bother scoring goals. In the second half, Crosby tried to recover the ball behind the Rangers' net, but Shesterkin blocked it. He made contact with the goalkeeper, who responded with a shot past Crosby. The quarrel ended there.

Brian Rust also hit the target twice.

Emil Bemstrom scored the other goal in the win.

Artemi Panarin had his team-high 64th assist of the game.

Quebec's Christopher Letang had two assists.

Alex Nedeljkovic stopped 28 shots in the win. For the Rangers. Igor Shesterkin blocked 16 shots.

Kaapo Kakko and Jack Roslovic responded for Rangers, who have won their last five games.
