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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

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.

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.

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…

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.…

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…

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…

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…

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…

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,…

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…

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…
