Pens' Crosby Contained In Game 1 Win: Sidney Crosby didn't pick up a point in Tuesday's 4-1 series-opening win over the Senators. He went minus-1 and lost 11 of 19 face-offs in his 17:04 of ice time. (Updated 5/14/13)

He'd picked up points in all five games he played against the Islanders, though he's generally struggled with face-offs and defense thus far in the playoffs. (Updated 5/14/13).
As Sidney Crosby fantasy owners are acutely aware, the star centerman missed 60 regular-season contests in 2011-12 due to concussion-like symptoms. When he was healthy, he led the NHL with a 1.68 points per-game mark, including eight goals and 29 assists in 22 games. Therein lies the rub. A healthy Crosby likely contends for his second Art Ross Trophy while a Sid with head and neck pain leads to fantasy zeros for extended periods of time. Heading into 2012-13, Crosby's reportedly feeling good and symptom-free, maintaining an excellent summer workout regimen. Risk tolerance will determine where Crosby goes in drafts for a player whose upside is nearly unrivaled. Do you feel lucky? Don't expect Crosby to last long on draft day. (Updated 8/14/12)
