Penguins center Sidney Crosby scored his 1,000th career National Hockey League point on Thursday against the Winnipeg Jets at PPG Paints Arena. He now boasts 62 points in 50 games this season (30 goals, 32 assists) compared to McDavid's 63 in 57 (18 goals, 45 assists). Crosby collected his first point of the night early in the first period when he helped set up Chris Kunitz's goal. The 29-year-old now ranks fifth all-time in career points-per-game and is pushing for a third Art Ross Trophy this year despite missing the first six games of the season. Crosby's assist was the 632nd of his career. We just have to focus on winning games and getting points and moving up the standings each and every day.

Having played in 757 career games, Crosby reached the mark faster than any other active player. The Russian winger became the 84th player to hit 1,000 points with a goal 35 seconds into the team's win over the Penguins on January 12. He has scored 368 goals in 12 seasons.
