The picture above is of Pittsburgh Penguins captain and hockey golden boy Sidney Crosby fighting Dallas Stars’ Matt Niskanen. This is Crosby’s fifth fight in his NHL career. The altercation came late in the game as the Penguins were down 4-1. Normally, players do Crosby’s dirty work for him, but he tried the tactic to rally the troops. Unfortunately, it did not work as the Penguins lost 5-2.
I suspect after the game was over, Penguins owner and hockey legend Mario Lemieux grounded Crosby from TV for a month. Crosby has taken a lot of flack for living with Lemieux from 2005 until this season.
