The LeBron James of hockey did yet another gorgeous thing that I don’t think I’ve ever seen before tonight against Montreal, one that required perfect awareness, hand-eye coordination, and stick control. It ruled.
The NHL clearly knew that they had a great game on their hands tonight, with two of its three biggest stars—Connor McDavid and Sidney Crosby—going toe to toe in Pittsburgh. They even promoted it like a must-watch event!
Further proof came tonight that, love him or hate him, Sidney Crosby is a modern hockey deity. In Pittsburgh’s overtime win against the Rangers, Crosby got the game-tying goal with under a minute to play in regulation.
This kid had his shirt signed by Penguins captain Sidney Crosby, and he was absolutely overwhelmed by the moment while being interviewed by Pittsburgh’s WTAE.
NBC broadcaster Mike Milbury is scarcely a month removed from declaring P.K. Subban a “clown” who deserved a “rap on the head” for daring to get loose during warmups by dancing on the ice. He’s now continued that fine legacy of wishing ill upon Subban, saying tonight that the defenseman deserved to get his head…
Sidney Crosby apparently wants P.K. Subban to know what it’s like to have a concussion... real bad.
It’s me, the guy who thinks Sidney Crosby doesn’t get the attention or credit he deserves for his play. No wait, don’t leave!
Let’s dive right into this one while proudly admitting that it’s silly, dumb, and fun. Hockey’s best player and its most marketable player now have an enjoyable mini-beef going to spice up what’s been a pretty engrossing series so far.
With Nashville on their way to a 5-1 victory during last night’s Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Finals, P.K. Subban and Sidney Crosby got into it a little—jawing at each other in the closing minutes of the third period before being separated by a referee. About the night’s gameplay, which had seen quick tempers and plenty…
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.
