Connor McDavid isn't quite there yet.

Crosby has indeed drawn level with McDavid atop the NHL's scoring leaderboard, as both have recorded 42 points this season.

The Pittsburgh Penguins superstar, however, has scored 26 goals in 31 games, and has the advantage when it comes to points per game after missing time early on with a concussion.

Crosby and McDavid are set to go head to head on March 10 in Edmonton.
