Sidney Crosby named 2nd star of the month for December

Paul Bereswill

For the third month in a row, the Pittsburgh Penguins have the NHL's second star of the month. This month, for the second time, it was Sidney Crosby.

Sidney Crosby has been named the 2nd star of the month of December by the NHL.

Crosby tied Kane for the League lead in points (23), tallying nine goals and 14 assists to power the Penguins (29-12-1, 59 points) to 11 victories in 14 games and the top spot in the Eastern Conference despite a series of injuries to key personnel. He registered at least one point in 13 of 14 outings, beginning the month with a 10-game point streak (7-11—18) before being held off the scoresheet Dec. 23 versus the Ottawa Senators. Crosby also posted seven multi-point performances, including a trio of three-point efforts: Dec. 5 versus the San Jose Sharks (0-3—3), Dec. 21 against the Calgary Flames (1-2—3) and Dec. 29 at the Columbus Blue Jackets (1-2—3). The 26-year-old Cole Harbour, N.S., native leads the NHL with 59 points in 42 games this season while also ranking in the top five in goals (t-4th: 22) and assists (2nd: 37).

If this sounds familiar, it's because in the three months of the season Crosby was the league's second star of the month in October and Evgeni Malkin got the honor of being the 2nd star of the month in November. Crosby gets it in December. Special stuff from special players. Go Pens.
