Sidney Crosby is maybe the most polarizing superstar the NHL has ever had. (I admit to being a big-time Crosby stan, but I really don’t understand the other side of it. If you can’t appreciate rare greatness, well, what the hell do you even watch sports for?) But I hope we can all come together and agree that he is a…
Sidney Crosby was the reason Marc Methot lost part of his finger in March, albeit on a routine play, but who needs an airtight reason to pick on Crosby, anyway? As the Ottawa Senators stayed alive with Tuesday’s 2-1 Game 6 win, various players chose to bother the Pittsburgh Penguins’ captain in any way they could.
Sidney Crosby says he was evaluated for (another) concussion after going headfirst into the boards. His coach says he wasn’t. He didn’t miss a shift. Someone here is lying, and someone—maybe multiple someones—is letting Crosby down.
Tonight in the first period of the Pittsburgh Penguins’ Game 6 against the Washington Capitals, Penguins star Sidney Crosby got wrecked again. Crosby smashed headfirst into the boards behind the Capitals’ goal, then dazedly sat up and struggled to get back on his feet. It was a scary hit on its own merits made even…
The last time we saw Sidney Crosby, he didn’t look so good. He had gotten slashed then cross-checked, and was diagnosed with a concussion. That was four days ago. Here’s what Crosby looks like now:
It’s been a while since we’ve seen Sidney Crosby lying on the ice like that, but it was immediately and frighteningly familiar. Crosby famously lost a year of his prime to concussions, so it feels like too much to hope for that we’ll get to see him again over the final month of the postseason.
With two minutes left to play in Pittsburgh and the Washington Capitals leading 2-0, it seemed a mere formality that the Caps would win Game 3. However, the Penguins pulled their goalie and Evgeni Malkin scored to make it 2-1 with just under two minutes to play. Moments later, the Pens’ Justin Schultz snuck in another…
The Washington Capitals are in Pittsburgh tonight for a must-win Game 3. They dropped both Game 1 and 2 in Washington, and now they have to win on the road to keep their season alive. Things are getting understandably testy. As Penguins superstar Sidney Crosby went in on goal in the first period, Alex Ovechkin knocked…
Sidney Crosby opened up the second period in dramatic fashion—scoring twice in just 54 seconds to allow the Penguins to take a 2-0 lead in tonight’s Game 1 against the Capitals.
The Columbus Dispatch has announced that they’ll no longer be distributing crying Sidney Crosby masks in this Sunday’s edition of the paper.
The Penguins beat the Devils 7-4 in Newark to clinch the second spot in the Metropolitan, and, crucially, home-ice advantage for their first-round matchup against the Blue Jackets. Pittsburgh got goals from seven different skaters, but the highlight of the night was, without question, an assist.
Sidney Crosby is at it again, “it” in this case short for “being an irritating asshole.”
Marc Methot came into tonight’s game against the Penguins with 10 fingers. He left with approximately 9.8 after Sidney Crosby slashed at him in the first period.
In the opening minutes of the Pittsburgh Penguins game against the Buffalo Sabres, Sidney Crosby whacked Ryan O’Reilly right in the dick and balls with a casual nonchalance that would make Draymond proud. Seeing how O’Reilly crumpled to the ice, though, this didn’t look like much of a love tap:
You can’t really dunk on your opponents in hockey, but Sidney Crosby got about as close as you can when he pinged a shot off of Antti Niemi’s shoulder from a tight angle, waited for it to rebound back to him, picked it out of the air, and bonked the puck in off of Niemi’s back.
Pittsburgh Penguins center Sidney Crosby has been diagnosed with a concussion, the team announced today.
So, here’s a subplot to watch as the Finals shift to San Jose. Sharks center Logan Couture on how Sidney Crosby has been so good on faceoffs through the first two games:
The Penguins have been the clear better team in both Finals games, and they’re up two games to none. But it doesn’t always work that way; the sample size of a series is too small for puck justice to win out every time, and indeed, both games have been decided by one goal. Individual plays carry the day. And Conor…
You wouldn’t know it if you only looked at the stat sheet (or, um, if you watched the Warriors game instead), but that might have been one of the finest playoff games of Sidney Crosby’s career.
The corollary to not overreacting when Sidney Crosby goes eight games without scoring a goal is also not overreacting when he finally finds the net. But hot damn, did the Penguins need that goal. If only to shut Jeremy Roenick up.
