Video: Crosby wastes no time, scores on second shift

Nov 21, 2011, 8:26 PM EDT

Love him or hate him, you have to admit that Sidney Crosby has a great sense of “the moment.” On his first shift, he helped set up a glorious chance for Chris Kunitz—and should have had an assist when Kunitz rang a shot of the crossbar. Not to worry though. On Crosby’s second shift, he streaked into the Islanders zone on his backhand and went top shelf over rookie netminder Anders Nilsson. Welcome to the NHL Andres.

Second shift. First shot. First goal. Yep, he’s still pretty good. Check it out for yourself:

    As a Philadelphia fan who watched all those Pittsburgh fans laughing, chanting, cheering, etc when Lindros was laying in the ice after the hit by Darius Kasparaitis……..Welcome back Crosby

      You need to be more specific. Which time Lindros was laying on the ice after a hit by Kasparaitis are you talking about? Lindros spent most of his career laying on the ice after he got hit. It’s too bad his mom couldn’t protect him ON the ice like she did off of it.

    I’m no professional lip-reader, but I’ll go with “F*CK YEAH”.
