PITTSBURGH -- Pittsburgh Penguins forward Sidney Crosby scored his 300th NHL goal Wednesday against the Philadelphia Flyers at Consol Energy Center.
Crosby has played in 622 games and has 849 points in 10 NHL seasons.
After winning a faceoff back to defenseman Ian Cole at the point, Crosby positioned himself below the goal line as Cole sent a slap shot into traffic in front of Flyers goalie Steve Mason. Forward Patric Hornqvist gathered Cole's attempt and backhanded a pass to Crosby to the right of the net.
Crosby's wrist shot gave the Penguins a 1-0 lead 3:29 into the first period. It was his 26th goal this season.
Crosby has scored 31 of his 300 goals against Philadelphia, his most against any team.
