Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby scored his 400th career goal early in the second period against the St. Louis Blues on Sunday afternoon.
Crosby was able to beat goalie Jake Allen from the left side of the net at 3:31. The goal came 21 seconds after St. Louis’ Kyle Brodziak gave his team a 1-0 lead.
He has become the 25th player in NHL history to have 400 goals and 650 assists. He managed to score his 401th goal in an empty-netter at the end of the game, in a 4-1 victory.
Crosby is just the third Penguins player to reach the 400-goal mark, joining Jaromir Jagr (439) and Mario Lemieux (690). Crosby's teammate Evgeni Malkin has 358.
He has 19 goals so far this season. He led the NHL with 44 goals last season.
