There is no doubt that Pittsburgh Penguins superstar Sidney Crosby will be a first ballot Hall of Fame inductee when he finally calls time on his illustrious career. Everyone had Crosby pegged as the next superstar when he was a young kid skating in the rinks of Nova Scotia and he has certainly lifted up with the lofty expectations.

This afternoon, Crosby added another milestone to his prominent career, during Pittsburgh's 4-1 defeat of the Detroit Red Wings. Crosby tied "The Great One" Wayne Gretzky for the seventh-most goals with a single franchise.

The goal was Crosby's 33rd of the season, ending an 11-game goal drought. The Penguins captain is staying consistent in the back end of his career, scoring 68 points in 67 games this season.

The 36 year old, scored his 583rd career goal while playing in his 1,257 game. Gretzky completed this feat while with the Edmonton Oilers from 1979-1988. Gretzky only needed 696 games to score his 583 goals. There is a reason he is called the greatest ever.
