Sidney Crosby recently became the sixth-fastest NHL player — and fastest active player — to reach 700 points. He leads the NHL with 38 points in 29 games. Tonight, the Penguins center and team captain is scheduled to play in his 500th game when the San Jose Sharks visit Consol Energy Center. That would seem to make this an opportune time to catch up with the man considered to be the face of the league. Crosby, 26, recently sat down to discuss a wide range of topics. Question: One thousand games is a pinnacle for an NHL player. You’re going to be halfway there and still young. Is 500 games a milestone that makes you want to stop and reflect?
