Penguins Crosby becomes NHL's 7th youngest player to reach 600-point plateau

BUFFALO, N.Y. - Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby became the NHL's seventh-youngest player to score his 600th career point.

Crosby achieved the plateau in the second period at Buffalo on Friday night, when he set up James Neal's power-play goal. It was Crosby's third point of the night after he assisted on Evgeni Malkin's goal and also scored in the first period.

Crosby then added a third assist in helping set up Steve Sullivan's goal to put Pittsburgh ahead 4-2 later in the period.

At 24 years, 236 days, Crosby is the youngest player to hit the mark since Pierre Turgeon did it with the New York Islanders in 1994.

With 220 goals and 380 assists in 430 games, Crosby also reached 600 points in the seventh-fewest games.
