Crosby crossed the line with a power play goal in the first period against Philadelphia.
Crosby is the 46th NHL player to cross the 500-goal mark and the 18th to do so with one team. Crosby is the second Penguin to score 500 points, joining Hall of Famer Mario Lemieux.
Crosby scored a goal from just above the goal line in the 16:34 mark of the first period to beat Carter Hart, Flyers goalie. Crosby was fed by Evgeni Malkin, a longtime teammate. This gave Pittsburgh a 2-1 lead.
Crosby also celebrated his 50th career goal against Flyers with this milestone. Crosby, a three-time Stanley Cup champion, has 50 goals and 65 assists against Pittsburgh's cross state rivals.
