It didn't go well the last time Bieber Fever struck an NHL venue, as a Rick Rypien memorial outside of Rogers Centre in Vancouver was defaced. Wary of escalating tensions, hockey has dropped goodwill ambassador Sidney Crosby into the fray‚ÄĒBieber's tour stop at the Consol Energy Center in Pittsburgh last night.

Seriously, we have no idea why he was there (Tyler Kennedy too, apparently). It just started as a Twitter rumor that Crosby was in the house, but photographic evidence has emerged. Maybe he likes it? Maybe he chaperoned his 16-year-old sister? Maybe Mario Lemieux finally kicked him out of the house and now Crosby just sleeps in the Pens' dressing room?

Without the lockout, the Penguins would have played in Detroit Monday night and be preparing to host the Devils tonight. Aren't you glad we're getting Justin Bieber concert attendance news instead of that?
