100!!!! Sidney Crosby makes history

Midgame update - the Pens are leading the Islanders 4-1 after two periods. Sidney Crosby has scored three points tonight (all assists), two in the second period on great passes. He is now the youngest player in history to reach 100 points.

The ovation at the arena was inspiring - it was a sea of white towels that seemed to go on for several minutes. I know it's only a short term thing, but I don't care if the Pens finish ahead of the Blues - I want them to win tonight (two points tonight will guarentee they can't finish last).

Let's go Pens!

Yeah, once it became 4-1 and Sid hit 100 it just wouldn't have been right to see them blow the lead and lose, especially for the final home game. St. Louis (cough) earned the cellar. 17 losses in 18 games is hard to top, in a manner of speaking.

That was a great ovation. I just watched the game.

Great for Crosby.

Would anyone ever believe a record by Lemieux would be broken?

Its a shame that most of the idiots in the media have already made up their minds about thrashing Crosby.

I'm mostly talking about the Canadian idiots here, but its remarkably quiet on the Canadian front when it comes to reporting about Crosbys milestone.

Crosby hasn't broken the team rookie record for points yet, but has tied it (Mario had 100 in his rookie year). Hopefully tonight he goes out with a bang in Toronto.

It's a tall order, but wouldn't it be awesome if Ovechkin was shut out tonight against Tampa Bay and Sid went out and had a 6- or 7-point night to finish on top? Hey it's wishful thinking, but it's possible, am I right? :)

I would *love* to see Crosby have a huge night in Toronto, just as a great big "screw you" to all of the people that helped leave him off of the Olympic team.
