Just another night at the office for Sidney Crosby and the Penguins as they racked up a fairly easy 4-2 win over the Boston Bruins.

Sidney had himself a nice night with 3 assists while going +3 in 21:48 of ice time.

From Yahoo!:
One game after clinching a playoff berth, the Pittsburgh Penguins reached another milestone.

Sidney Crosby had three assists in a 4-2 victory over the Boston Bruins on Thursday night, raising his NHL-leading point total to 116 and helping the Penguins reach 100 points and sole possession of first place in the Atlantic Division.

"It's a nice little milestone to hit for us," Crosby said. "After the year we had last year, you don't want to stop there. But it's a nice accomplishment."

Crosby had 39 goals and 63 assists as a rookie last season, but the Penguins managed just 58 points as they missed the playoffs for the fourth time since their appearance in 2000-01. While he's improved a bit this season , his team has had a complete turnaround.

"We're happy with that," coach Michel Therrien said of being alone in first place, two points ahead of the idle New Jersey Devils. "As long as we concentrate on winning our games, we'll be fine."
