Crosby reaches 100 points with assist vs. Hurricanes @NHLdotcom

Sidney Crosby of the Pittsburgh Penguins reached 100 points for the fifth time in his NHL career with a first-period assist against the Carolina Hurricanes on Tuesday night.

Crosby became the first player in the League this season to reach 100 points when he earned an assist on a goal by Chris Kunitz at 9:01 of the opening period. It was his 64th assist to go along with 36 goals.

Crosby reached the 100-point mark in four of his first five NHL seasons, including a League-high 120 points in 2006-07. But he had not scored more than 66 points in any of the past three seasons, mostly due to injuries that limited him to 41 games in 2010-11 and 22 games the following season. He was leading the League with 56 points in 36 games last season but missed the remainder of the 48-game season with a broken jaw.
