PITTSBURGH -- Pittsburgh Penguins teenager Sidney Crosby became the youngest player in NHL history with two 100-point seasons when he scored a goal Saturday against the New York Rangers.

Crosby, who does not turn 20 until August 7, tallied a power-play goal 6:56 into the third period to tie the game at 2. He has 28 goals and 72 assists in 65 games this season after posting 39 goals and 63 assists for 102 points last year as a rookie.

Though the Penguins have been one of the league's hottest teams since the All-Star break, Crosby has been enduring the worst goal-scoring stretch of his young career. Entering Saturday's contest, Crosby had only one goal in his past 10 games and two in his past 19, but he still leads the NHL in scoring this season.
