    Brent Johnson is now 3-0 while established starter Marc-Andre Fleury is 0-3 in this early season. Is it too early to wonder if there might be a goalie controversy in the Pittsburgh Penguins net? Read on for more on that and Sidney Crosby’s dominant night.

  3. Video: Sidney Crosby hits a big home run at Pirates' PNC Park

    Sep 8, 2010, 5:50 PM EST

    Apparently hitting huge game winning shots isn’t the only thing Michael Jordan and Sidney Crosby have in common. Of course, if Crosby has dreams of playing Major League Baseball, his fantasies might be a bit more justified. Or maybe he just got lucky. Either way, check out this video of Crosby hitting a home run…

  4. Can Sidney Crosby hit the 50-goal mark again next season?

    Sep 3, 2010, 2:30 PM EST

    During his first four seasons, Sidney Crosby was transparently pass-first. That’s not a bad thing in many ways since setting up teammates is a naturally selfless act and Crosby is one of the NHL’s most gifted playmakers. Still, when you consider how much the Pittsburgh Penguins depend on his production, opposing teams might have benefited…

  5. Poll results: PHT readers think Sidney Crosby is a dirty player

    Aug 31, 2010, 6:10 PM EST

    When Karl Marx discussed “the tragedy of the commons” he focused on the fact that people need an incentive to maintain their surroundings. The phrase might be a good fit for Internet comments sections, too, though. It’s not surprising to see such principles in action when it comes to a player as derisive as Sidney…

  6. One last chance to vote in the 'Is Sidney Crosby a dirty player?' poll

    Aug 31, 2010, 9:00 AM EST

    After reading the Pensblog’s amusing “Mount Dirtymore” post, I couldn’t help but wonder whether or not Sidney Crosby is indeed a dirty player. More importantly, though, I had to know what side of the argument PHT readers come in on. While the poll already received more than 1,000 votes, I thought I’d give everyone a…

  7. Is Sidney Crosby a dirty player?

    Aug 28, 2010, 5:30 PM EST

    Maybe it’s just because it is the summer time or perhaps his gold medal winning goal forced people to eat some crow, but the cottage industry on hating Sidney Crosby dried up a bit lately. For those of you who simply don’t have the same spring in your step unless the NHL’s golden child is…

  8. Sidney Crosby and Roger Federer meet for first time; No word on if they ate any birthday cake

    Aug 8, 2010, 8:15 PM EST

    Comments Off

    Hockey and tennis are two wildly different sports. One is a team based game that requires considerable physical sacrifice and features plenty of violence. The other is a sport of one-on-one competition in which you can only really blame yourself for defeat (aside from maybe a few quibbles with line judges). Still, they are both…

  9. Sporting News names Sidney Crosby best athlete under 25, but NHL has plenty more

    Jun 18, 2010, 8:20 PM EST

    So, the Sporting News named Sidney Crosby the best athlete under the age of 25. Athletes were judged on major stats; championships to which they’d made major contributions; buzz factor; and age. Crosby, who is 22 years old, was ranked No. 1, followed by Dwight Howard of the Orlando Magic (24); Kevin Durant of the…

  10. Sidney Crosby passes on 2010 IIHF WC Team Canada invite

    May 13, 2010, 6:00 PM EST

    To little surprise, Sidney Crosby turned down an invitation to play for Team Canada in the 2010 IIHF World Championships. Here’s the Associated Press story. Crosby, who played in all but one of the Pittsburgh Penguins’ 95 games this season, including playoffs, turned down the invitation on Thursday after being asked to replace the injured…

  11. Sidney Crosby, Penguins fall short against Canadiens 5-2

    May 12, 2010, 10:15 PM EST

    The Montreal Canadiens have become experts at “stealing” victories thanks to conservative defense, great goaltending and timely offense. Tonight, however, the Pittsburgh Penguins practically dropped victory in their laps. Montreal Canadiens 5, Pittsburgh Penguins 2 Canadiens win series 4-3 Sidney Crosby and Marc-Andre Fleury set the tone for the game … the only problem was…

  12. Examining Sidney Crosby's struggles

    May 7, 2010, 1:45 PM EST

    During the Ottawa Senators series, Sidney Crosby was making a case for being the consensus greatest player in the hockey world. With an absurd 14 points in only 5 games, it looked like he was going to threaten Wayne Gretzky and Mario Lemieux for all-time playoff performances. It only seems fair, then, that the deification…

  13. Who's more valuable, Sidney Crosby or Jaroslav Halak?

    Apr 30, 2010, 5:45 PM EST

    I know the majority of you read this headline and either scratched your head in confusion or slammed your keyboard in anger. “How could this even be a debate,” you ask. “They don’t even play the same position and aren’t even on the same team.” Stay with me on this one. Headed into tonight’s Game…

  14. Sidney Crosby avoids injury scare, Sens up 2-0

    Apr 24, 2010, 8:18 PM EST

    Sidney Crosby was shaken up after falling into Pascal Leclaire early in the second period. Anton Volchenkov pushed Crosby into his goalie and Crosby seemed to hurt his wrist. It’s unclear if he suffered a cut or just fell awkwardly on his hand. Reports from sources including Scott Burnside indicate that Crosby is at least…

  15. 2010 NHL playoffs: Sidney Crosby

    Apr 17, 2010, 8:30 AM EST

    Sidney Crosby had one heck of night against the Senators, with a goal, a goal line save and the assist of the playoffs so far.

  16. Assist/Effort of the night: Sidney Crosby

    Apr 16, 2010, 10:16 PM EST

    You’re going to read a lot about Sid The Kid’s effort on Pittsburgh’s game-winning goal against Ottawa and now you can check it out for yourselves. Kris Letang’s shot wasn’t too bad either. This highlight reel will be seen a lot not only on television but also in Jason Spezza’s nightmares.

  17. Assist of the Night: Sidney Crosby's no-look pass

    Apr 15, 2010, 10:45 AM EST

    Comments Off

    It’s only appropriate to have an Assist of the Night when a special pass happens. This is one of those cases. Sidney Crosby haters beware because his no-look pass to set up Alex Goligoski was a thing of genius. Seriously, does he have spider sense or something? (Or at least Spider-Man bed sheets?) Ultimately the…

  18. Sidney Crosby, Steven Stamkos tie for Richard trophy

    Apr 11, 2010, 8:15 PM EST

    Comments Off

    Sidney Crosby and Steven Stamkos have officially tied for the Rocket Richard Trophy with two excellent 51 goal seasons. This marks the second time in NHL history that the goal scoring award will go to more than one player as the 2003-04 season featured a three-way tie between Jarome Iginla, Rick Nash and Ilya Kovalchuk.…

  19. Steven Stamkos ties Sidney Crosby with goal 51

    Apr 11, 2010, 7:30 PM EST

    Comments Off

    When Alex Ovechkin scored an empty net goal with .2 seconds left in the Capitals’ last regular season against the Penguins, I jokingly asked if he “hooked the tights”* on the Richard trophy. * – This is a professional wrestling reference. Yes, I am lame. Anyway, there’s more than a little humor to the fact…

  20. Sidney Crosby, Alex Ovechkin top list of young scorers

    Apr 9, 2010, 1:30 PM EST

    Comments Off

    Last night Sidney Crosby joined about as elite company as it gets, becoming the third youngest player in NHL history to hit 500 points behind two nobodies named Wayne Gretzky and Mario Lemieux. The only players younger than Crosby (22 years, 244 days) to hit the 500-point mark faster were Wayne Gretzky (21 years, 52 days) and…

  21. The case for Sidney Crosby for the Hart Trophy

    Apr 9, 2010, 11:00 AM EST

    Comments Off

    As we near the end of the season, we’re going to take a look at who we think should be three finalists for the Hart, Norris and Calder Trophies, making arguments for each. We start with the Hart Trophy, given to the NHL’s Most Valuable Player. Next up: Sidney Crosby. Why he deserves it: The…

  22. Alex Ovechkin tops Sidney Crosby in players' poll

    Mar 30, 2010, 4:20 PM EST

    Admittedly, I “slept” on the results from ESPN’s Confidential Players poll for a bit, but after hearing some complaints about the answers being restricted by “Insider” status on Twitter I thought I’d share some of the more interesting results. (Yes, I am an Insider. Yes, I paid for it myself.) Now, naturally, all the results can be found…

  23. Jimmy Howard takes on Sidney Crosby

    Mar 23, 2010, 11:43 AM EST

    Last night’s game between the Red Wings and Penguins felt like it was played between two teams that have battled in the Stanley Cup finals in two straight seasons. It was intense, it was emotional and in the end it got a bit out of hand. (Video here) As time expired in Detroit’s 3-1 win,…

  24. Alex Ovechkin: Fighting to keep up with Sidney Crosby

    Mar 14, 2010, 9:00 AM EST

    Chicago Blackhawks vs. Washington Capitals 12:30 p.m. EST – Sunday, March 14, 2010Live on NBC It seems that it is rare to find a hockey fan that likes both Sidney Crosby and Alex Ovechkin. It’s Team Sid vs. Team Ovi and the battle can get a bit bloody at times, as fans spew forth hate…

  25. Leave poor Sidney Crosby alone

    Mar 9, 2010, 7:15 PM EST

    I have to be honest here: I didn’t know about the Sidney Crosby “snub” of David Letterman until earlier today and my immediate reaction was “who cares?”. If this had happened in the middle of July or some other time when the Pittsburgh Penguins wasn’t actively playing an NHL season, then I can understand the…
