After recording his 10th career hat trick on Sunday in a 4-0 rout of the Florida Panthers, Penguins captain Sidney Crosby on Monday was named the NHL’s second star of the week.
Crosby led all NHL scorers with six goals last week. His eight points were one shy of the first star, Boston’s Brad Marchand.
In addition to his three goals against Florida, Crosby scored late in regulation against Calgary, helping the Penguins pick up a point, and two times against the Devils on Friday.
Calgary goaltender Brian Elliott was the third star of the week.
• Sunday’s Penguins-Flyers game will begin at 7 p.m. at PPG Paints Arena. The game was originally scheduled for 12:30 p.m. It will be televised on NBC Sports Network.
