Sidney Crosby had an impressive performance on Monday night as the Penguins took on the New York Rangers and tied an NHL record in the process.

During the game, Crosby had two goals and an assist to help the Penguins to a 5-2 win over the Rangers. With his three-point performance, Crosby is now up to 82 points on the season, which is the 19th time in his NHL career he's been a point-per-game player.

In doing so, Crosby has now tied hockey legend Wayne Gretzky for the most seasons with at least a point-per-game with 19 and it just shows that despite being 36, the Penguins captain isn't slowing down anytime soon.

"Players with 19-consecutive point-per-game seasons in NHL history:
•Wayne Gretzky
•Sidney Crosby


That's it. That's the list."


"Sidney Crosby has secured his 19th NHL season with at least a point per game -- matching Wayne Gretzky for the most in history.

Remarkable consistency from No. 87."


What Sidney Crosby has done throughout the course of his National Hockey League career is incredible and there's no doubt that he could have been pushing the 1800-point mark by now if he was healthy between 2011 and 2013, when he was dealing with concussion issues.

From his NHL accolades, along with what he's done on the international stage, Crosby will definitely be a first-ballot Hall-of-Famer when he decides to hang up the skates.
