Watch Crosby score with baseball move

Feb 8, 2013, 8:57 AM EDT

Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby showed off his hand-eye coordination Thursday night.

With his team already up 4-1 in the second period, Crosby gave them a little extra insurance by batting a puck out of midair and past Washington Capitals goaltender Braden Holtby.

“Sid gets a single up the middle,” Penguins coach Dan Bylsma said via the team’s Twitter account. “Pretty outstanding goal.”

If you want to view it for yourself, you can do so below:

Crosby also registered two assists in Pittsburgh’s 5-2 victory. He now has 17 points in 11 games, which is good enough to put him into a tie for third place in the NHL.

Penguins add to Capitals’ misery, Ovechkin disgusted

    In Ovechkin’s last 100 games, he has had more than two points one time. In Crosby’s last 100 games, he has had more than two points 27 times.

    • axisofweasels - Feb 8, 2013 at 9:37 AM

      clearly, crosby is the winner of the who’s better contest, but its taken sidney 2.5 seasons to reach 100 games, while its taken ovie just over 1.

      • davebabychreturns - Feb 8, 2013 at 10:11 AM

        So Ovie wins “who’s healthier” by a mile.

      • jwcamp - Feb 8, 2013 at 10:44 AM

        @davebabychreturns That’s because Ovie also wins “gives out cheap shots instead of receiving them” by a mile

      • ewoods6 - Feb 8, 2013 at 11:12 AM

        Making Sid’s number all the more impressive.

      • mclovinhockey - Feb 8, 2013 at 3:19 PM

        @Jw actually thats a lot closer than most these numbers

    • handsofsweed - Feb 8, 2013 at 7:30 PM

      Better go ahead and make that 28 for 101.

    45-3 LET’S GO!

    • paresident21 - Feb 8, 2013 at 11:46 AM

      You dudes from Pittsburgh sure are fruity liking men’s thighs, you prob like what’s in between even more don’t ya?

      • handsofsweed - Feb 8, 2013 at 7:34 PM

        Um, no. He’s only one man with many, many personalities. If that isn’t completely obvious at this late stage in his troll game, nothing will ever be obvious to you.

  3. brainoflindros - Feb 8, 2013 at 10:30 AM

    He may have to play baseball if he takes another hit to the head.

    • killerpgh - Feb 8, 2013 at 2:56 PM

      Your name made me laugh.

  4. seanaveryrules - Feb 8, 2013 at 10:43 AM

    Sidney Crosby is absolute GARBAGE

    • jwcamp - Feb 8, 2013 at 10:45 AM

      Riiiight.

    • pens5829 - Feb 8, 2013 at 12:06 PM

      Time to put your crack pipe down…

  5. mclovinhockey - Feb 8, 2013 at 11:00 AM

    pffft, any good goalie could have stopped that hahahahaha yeah thats a lie, as a flyers fan I have to say awesome goal.
    I thought it was going to be another slide kick goal. I saw him get that before.

    Anyway Crosby does not suck, he is very talented, yes he is injury prone but so are many great players. He is also a diver and whiner but thats neither here nor there.

    Before saying sid sucks or saying he is the greatest player of all time (neither which are true)

    Watch this video

    • aso513 - Feb 8, 2013 at 11:35 AM

      Crawl back in your hole please, and enough with videos from 2006-08 where admittedly Sid did complain a bit. Not the case anymore as he is the most dominant player in the game when he plays.

      • mclovinhockey - Feb 8, 2013 at 11:45 AM

        Crawl back in my hole? for what? giving an unbiased view of a player?

        Some of those clips are from last year.

        Everything I said was 100% a fact. He does not suck, he is a good player, but he isnt the best player of all time. He has a VERY VERY large hill to climb in order to be there. Yeah he admitted he whines, he is a dirty player by all standards.
        These are all facts. So tell me why you want me to crawl into a hole?

      • aso513 - Feb 8, 2013 at 11:49 AM

        Those aren’t facts buddy, they are clearly your opinions on him. You give no real factual evidence, he is such a dirty player yet never has received any type of supplemental discipline.

        Here are the facts:

        He is the most decorated player in the game right now and the most productive player in the game when he is on the ice.

      • sportsfreak13 - Feb 8, 2013 at 11:55 AM

        Giroux has more suspensions then crosby so is it fair to call him a dirty player? Giroux also has received penalties for whining to the officials, shall we call him a cryer.

      • mclovinhockey - Feb 8, 2013 at 2:59 PM

        Aso…. ummm while I admit the dirty factor although shown in the video above about his slew foots and dives is still an opinion just like its an opinion calling Hitler a bad person, Sid is not the most decorated player active in the league right now… I am not sure but I think its Datsyuk
        4 Lady Byng
        3 Selke
        2 Stanley cups
        and a Plus/ Minus award…. So no Sid is not more decorated than him.

      • sportsfreak13 - Feb 8, 2013 at 3:07 PM

        Crosby is 25 and datsyuk is 34. Datsyuk has 3 Selke, and 4 Lady Byng trophies to go with his 2 cups. Crosby has 1 Hart, Art Ross, 1 Mark Messier Award (Leadership), 1 Maurice Richard award,and a Lester B Pearson award, along with 1 cup and a gold medal. O yea and giroux has 1 video game cover. Cheers.

      • mclovinhockey - Feb 8, 2013 at 3:25 PM

        @ sports freak, Why do you keep brining giroux into this?

        Fact is sid is not the most decorated active player in the game right now and you just admitted to it as well, nor is sid the most productive player right now. Crosby has 11 games under his belt with 17 points, Vanek has 10 with 21 points… So FACT is aso was wrong.

      • sportsfreak13 - Feb 8, 2013 at 3:41 PM

        I bring giroux into this because your a flyer fan. When i see a troll i troll back, so sue me. I appreciate your respect of his skills and accomplishments but when you bring up being dirty and whining i bring up giroux to prove that your captain has similar flaws that you dont seem to ackowledge (however i dont think sid is dirty and his whining went away after he matured because well he started in the NHL at age 18).Your right sid is not the most decorated NHL player currently. He is 2 awards shy of someone who is 9 years older then him. He is also 4 points behind vanek right now but giving how were only 1/4 into the season im not too worried about that giving how consistent crosby has been in his career and vanek not so much. Crosby is arguebly one of the most consistent hockey players in the game today when he is on the ice and that can not be denied.

    • Steeley McBeam - Feb 8, 2013 at 11:48 AM

      Hahaha this is great. Love Crosby but this video is hilarious. Dont get mad Pens fans its nothing we havent already seen.

    • hockeywithdrawal - Feb 8, 2013 at 12:28 PM

      This article isn’t called “Sid called himself the best player”…it’s about a goal. There are so many people standing up saying “HE’S NOT THE BEST!”. And very few (I’ve only seen one) that are actually calling him the best ever. He is a very good player, like you said. He never said he was the best ever, so the rest of your “unbiased” argument is just weird.

      He IS, however, a great leader and a great Captain…how could we expect you to understand that when you clearly aren’t a Pens fan…probably not going to agree on that one. My opinion is that he whines about as much as most, A LOT less than some, and when he does whine it’s magnified because people like you get footage of it (not that there isn’t similar footage for everyone in the league) and there are some very obvious examples there from the idiots across state.

      • mclovinhockey - Feb 8, 2013 at 3:18 PM

        Actually I was just trying to cut down on the idiocracy (I know that is not a real word but it fits) from both ends. Considering that was the point of my post and the majority of my argument was that both sides of this have good points and bad, which is pretty much what you agreed to then I would say I guess I am right.

        I was the one who made the video, I honestly like him as a leader because he can change the feeling of a game with one shift but as a Captain I dont like him. Now honestly I really do not think I would make any forward a captain of my team, I always thought the C should go to a Veteran D. I.E. a guy like Kimmo Timmonen over Giroux. (btw I think its funny how it says Die haha) I always thought D was the most important position so I would also go to the back end first before giving that out to a young adult like Giroux, Crosby, Ovechkin, Towes ect.. So for Pitt it seems like with my logic Orpik or Martian would be the ones I would go to with the C. Not sure if either of them really fit the job but thats just my honest opinion

      • hockeywithdrawal - Feb 8, 2013 at 5:23 PM

        Fair enough!

      • hockeywithdrawal - Feb 8, 2013 at 5:26 PM

        Plus it sucks the life out of the team. To know that their coach doesn’t even have their back. If he’s so bad, why not COACH him? Don’t slaughter him to the press.

    • misterchainbluelightning - Feb 9, 2013 at 1:06 PM

      10th or 20th time McLoving has posted this video? Some Flyers fan makes a video on youtube and another kid has fallen in love with it and it has become his bible.

      Get a life loser, we seen you posted it over and over. It’s lame, just like you. Yes yes hockey players are double sided we get it, you however think he’s the only one and keep posting this over and over and over.

      • mclovinhockey - Feb 10, 2013 at 3:21 PM

        I said it before and I will say it again. I made this video. So the majority of you post is incorrect. I post this video to get flyers and pens fans to stop saying idiotic comments that are one sided. its also funny because you say the exact opposite of whats true.

        So if you do not like the video trying to show knowledge to the moronic fans who do see this one sided THEN DO NOT WATCH IT.

      • misterchainbluelightning - Feb 10, 2013 at 5:18 PM

        Oh so years later you’re still holding on and pimping some vid you made years ago?
        Seek help man

      • misterchainbluelightning - Feb 10, 2013 at 5:20 PM

        “look at this vid I made years ago”
        “look again at this vid I made years ago”
        “look again at this vid I already posted because I made it myself years ago”
        “Look at me I made this video, it the same one ive posted many times but I suffer from a personality disorder and can’t stop posting it”

      • mclovinhockey - Feb 10, 2013 at 8:59 PM

        It was made 10 months ago… hence why there is stuff in there from last year. for the little that he played. If you dont like it then dont watch it. I think I posted that video a total of 4 times (according to the stats on the video).

        How many times do I have to prove you wrong in a day.

        You start your argument saying the video shows crosby is one sided yet he is two sided (clearly you did not watch that video because you would have realized you argued for me not against me).

        Now you are saying I post this video so often and I have been doing it for years. (once again I proved you wrong)

        Whats next???

        Clearly you are alone on being against my video because I have gotten nothing but compliments on it and people on this told me it was great. Every time I post it if it just gets one more person to gain more knowledge then I did my job. Judging from the responses I have been getting I inform at least 7 new people a post.

        : )

  6. broadstbully33 - Feb 8, 2013 at 11:21 AM

    Not bad… Not bad at all

  7. broadstbully33 - Feb 8, 2013 at 11:54 AM

    Fact is vanek is better than Crosby right now…

    • sportsfreak13 - Feb 8, 2013 at 11:57 AM

      and giroux

    • aso513 - Feb 8, 2013 at 11:58 AM

      No, he really isn’t. And I’m sure deep down you know that.

      Sid during the last 5 games has been nothing short of brilliant on the ice. Just takes over the game on almost every shift.

      • mclovinhockey - Feb 8, 2013 at 3:30 PM

        no, fact is right now vanek is the best in the league… if you can not admit that then you are a biased homer.

    • pens5829 - Feb 8, 2013 at 12:11 PM

      Man they must start Friday Happy Hour early in Philly???

      • hockeywithdrawal - Feb 8, 2013 at 12:30 PM

        They’re always drunk in Philthy…

      • mclovinhockey - Feb 8, 2013 at 3:32 PM

        Crosby
        GP 11
        Points 17

        Vanek
        GP 10
        Points 21

        Vanek is currently the best in the league but I guess we are drunk because we know what we are talking about.

      • aso513 - Feb 8, 2013 at 3:54 PM

        Cling to Vanek’s points lead for now, because it will be Sid’s soon enough. Crosby takes over games unlike anyone in the game right now. Just watch a game.

        By the way Crosby in his last 82 regular season games, 140 points. Wake up.

    • hockeywithdrawal - Feb 8, 2013 at 12:29 PM

      BB are you lonely waiting for articles to comment on about the Cryers loss last night?? :)

    • bobhpine - Feb 8, 2013 at 12:59 PM

      Go clean your room boy

    • bobhpine - Feb 8, 2013 at 1:31 PM

      Wow man. You are obsessed with Sidney Crosby. Every single day you post multiple times about him.

      You are consumed with him. Imagine if you spent all that time working.

  8. broadstbully33 - Feb 8, 2013 at 1:14 PM

    I actually complimented Crosby… Aww it looks like withdrawal has a friend today how sweet.

  9. broadstbully33 - Feb 8, 2013 at 1:16 PM

    See unlike u I don’t just spew hate on every pens article I read. I have opinions and not just blind plathetic hate for the opposition. You guys just sound butt hurt over last years playoffs still.

    • sportsfreak13 - Feb 8, 2013 at 1:22 PM

      Pretty sure most pens fans were over that at the start of the season. Considering both teams records right now its safe to say that series is buried about as far back in our memories as the 08 AND 09 series for you flyer fans.

      • paresident21 - Feb 8, 2013 at 4:48 PM

        Wow congrats heres your feb 8 stanley cup!!!! The flyers are one point out of the playoffs whats your point exactly? What have the penguins won this year?

      • sportsfreak13 - Feb 8, 2013 at 5:11 PM

        Reading comprehension isn’t your thing huh parensident21? My point was that neither the pens nor their fans are concerned about what happened in last years playoffs. Also to answer your question the penguins have won 8 out of 11 games this year. Never did i say anything about the cup.

    • f2maestro - Feb 8, 2013 at 2:12 PM

      Have you ever read some of the posts you write? I’m pretty sure 90% of your comments are just that,”blind pathetic hate for the opposition”; more specifically, Pittsburgh and Sidney Crosby.

  10. broadstbully33 - Feb 8, 2013 at 1:25 PM

    It’s nice to see you came out of hiding sportsfreak. How long will you and bobhpine go into hiding the next time the pens lose?

    • bobhpine - Feb 8, 2013 at 1:36 PM

      Haha. You’re a sorry little guy.

  11. broadstbully33 - Feb 8, 2013 at 1:41 PM

    It’s nice to see you came out of hiding sportsfreak. How long will you and bobhpine go into hiding the next time the pens lose??

    • sportsfreak13 - Feb 8, 2013 at 1:53 PM

      You realize after all the pens losses (all 3 of them) i have congratulated the opposing team for playing better then us. Get your facts straight there troll.

  12. bobhpine - Feb 8, 2013 at 1:49 PM

    Broadstreetbully…how many times a day do you post comments about Sidney Crosby and/or the Penguins? Since you aren’t busy, why don’t you count them up and tell us?

    You’re a little obsessed there tough guy. Maybe you should take a little personal inventory about this whole Sidney Crosby/Pittsburgh Penguins thing. Maybe find a hobby.

    • f2maestro - Feb 8, 2013 at 2:09 PM

      I’m glad to see I’m not the only one seeing this. Broadstbully33’s comments don’t serve any purpose other than making me have to scroll farther to get to the comments worth reading.

      There’s a whole other world outside the internet, try exploring broadstbully33…

  13. paresident21 - Feb 8, 2013 at 4:35 PM

    I need to pick up my 8 month old niece to translate al these penguins fans all I read is WAHHHH WAHHHH WAHHHH. No one outside your city likes the guy who was voted by his own peers as the biggest whiner in thw NHL. To say hes grown up is a joke, what grown man pushes someones glove away when he goes to pick it up??? You call that mature? How about his famous post game quote. “Why dont you lime them” – “Because I just dont” wahh wahhh wahhh. Please keep trying to say hes stopped because he hasnt.

    • sportsfreak13 - Feb 8, 2013 at 5:15 PM

      haha your glove comment can be construed as” WAHHH WAHHH” along with giroux crying about crosby slashing his wrists. You do know your captain got a penalty this season for crying to the refs right? Quit while your behind paresendt because your just embarrassing yourself.

      • paresident21 - Feb 8, 2013 at 6:52 PM

        Really? Thats the best you penguins fans have? To just repeat everything we say?? You are from pittsburgh not very intelligent. When you guys come up with something original then talk until then keep repeating everything not only the flyers fan base says but every other fan base in the nhl says, your captain is a whining sniveling punk

  14. paresident21 - Feb 8, 2013 at 4:37 PM

    And hes not even the best player on his own team btw

    • sportsfreak13 - Feb 8, 2013 at 5:12 PM

      Really because he has more points then malkin right now.

  15. phillyphannn83 - Feb 8, 2013 at 6:45 PM

    WAAAHHHHH WAAAHHHHH They’re throwing too many hats on the ice WAAAHHHH WAHHHHHH

    THATS crying to the refs, LITERALLY crying!!! Do I really have to embed the video? We’ve all see it. Supposed grown man with tears running down his face after another player scores a hat trick. No one from any other team in the history of he sport literally CRIED over a hat trick. Please, PLEASE try to find a way to defend that because if any of you actually think that’s defendable, you need to turn in your man card!! And before you say “c’mon that was 5 years ago,” he pulled Hartnells hair last year in the playoffs, PULLED HIS HAIR!!! Girls do that!!!!! Gimme a break.

    • aso513 - Feb 8, 2013 at 7:12 PM

      I guess you forget Hartnell biting Letang. And stop writing in all caps all it does it show how bitter you are.

      • phillyphannn83 - Feb 9, 2013 at 8:21 PM

        No one actually saw this, all of a sudden Leb¡tchboy claims he was bitten when not one of the 20+ cameras in the arena saw it but Crosbys little girl hair pulling was seen by millions. And why would I be bitter? We won, we knocked you out of the playoffs and exposed your team as being the classless crybabys you accused us as being. We made your team the laughing stock of the playoffs. Im MORE than satisfied with that!! But keep playing that “im not bitter, youre bitter” arguement, you sound like a 10-year-old.

    • bobhpine - Feb 8, 2013 at 8:04 PM

      What about Last Place?

      • phillyphannn83 - Feb 9, 2013 at 8:53 PM

        i dont know, how about 3rd place and only 5 points behind your Pens. :-)

  16. ironman721 - Feb 8, 2013 at 7:25 PM
