Crosby has scored 11 points in his last 7 games and is has been on fire ever since James Neal came back from his injury. Neal’s return also seems to have sparked Evgeni Malkin, who skyrocketed from number 33 two weeks ago, to number 3 now. The landscape of the top 50 player rankings is also not very diverse, with 7 teams taking up 56% of the spots (Pittsburgh, St. Louis, Detroit, Chicago, San Jose, Anaheim, and Ottawa).
