PITTSBURGH (AP) - Sidney Crosby has extended his point streak to 25 games with a power-play goal in the first period against Atlanta.

The Penguins captain passed the puck from along the right-wing boards to defenseman Kris Letang between the circles, then took Letang's giveback to score while dropping to a knee 10:34 into Tuesday night's game.

Crosby has at least one goal in five consecutive games and 25 during his streak, which began Nov. 5 in Anaheim.

Crosby's streak ties him with four others for the NHL's 11th longest. It is the longest in 19 years, since Mats Sundin's 30-game streak for Quebec during the 1992-93 season.

Wayne Gretzky owns the record with a 51-game streak in 1983-84.

Quote of the Day

That group is not satisfied until we win a Stanley Cup. When we do win that Stanley Cup, I don't think we'll be satisfied then either. We're going to want another one. We have the group to do it. We have all the pieces. We just need to put them together.
