Sidney Crosby continues to pile up points in his comeback game

Mar 16, 2012, 1:30 PM EDT

According to ESPN New York’s Katie Strang, there’s been an official scoring change from Pittsburgh’s 5-2 victory over the New York Rangers on Thursday night. Sidney Crosby has been awarded the primary assist on Pascal Dupuis‘ third period goal — Pittsburgh’s fifth and final tally of the evening.

Upon watching the replay, it looks like Crosby gets the slightest of touches on Kris Letang‘s point shot, which was saved by Martin Biron — the rebound was then flipped home by Dupuis:

The scoring change means Crosby had two assists last night and now has 14 points on the year, placing him 14th on Pittsburgh’s scoring list (moving ahead of 13-point men Richard Park, Craig Adams, Joe Vitale and Aaron Asham).

The 14 points also draw him level with Los Angeles’ Dustin Penner who, it should be noted, has played 53 games this year.

Crosby’s played nine.

      It’s kind of touching that you hate a team so much you would go through all the trouble just to make a username to show everyone. On behalf of the Penguins organization I am proud to see we have gotten so good that people take significant amount of time out of there lives to show us their hatred.

    Lots of Sid haters. He’s easily the best player in the world, hence the hatred.

    If he had the size non-glass jaw of Malkin , he would be something.
    He`s just a smaller version of glass-jawed Lindros.
    Broadcast booth here he comes !

    The only cure for a glass-jaw is retirement.
