Sidney Crosby had two assists in his 1,000th NHL game to help the Pittsburgh Penguins defeat the New York Islanders 3-2 at PPG Paints Arena on Saturday.

"It means a lot," Crosby said. "It's a special day regardless of the outcome, but it makes it so much better when you win. Just everything from the guys and the ceremony in the room and on the ice, I was just completely spoiled today. It was a pretty awesome experience and a day I'll always remember."
