Penguins star Crosby leaves game following hit to head

Author

Crosby remained down on the ice for a brief period of time before he was helped to the locker room. Eventually, he got to his feet and skated with trainers off the ice. He did not return to the game. Sullivan also did not want to comment on the hit. "They'll be evaluated overnight and then go from there. I don't think it's something this game is looking for, especially against someone who means so much to our team". Penguins Coach Mike Sullivan wasn't thrilled with the shot-blocking trend through two games, because having to block so many shots indicates the other team is regularly possessing the puck.

Crosby, who earlier in the evening was named a finalist for the Hart Trophy as NHL MVP, got hurt at 5:24 of the first when the game was scoreless. He was kicked out of the game for the hit as he should have been, but should the league office really take it to this guy.

Beyond that, even, is the fact that this looks way worse in slo-mo. As Crosby was falling to the ice, Niskanen hit him in the head. As he's doing that, he's getting lower and lower. If Ovechkin doesn't take his stick to Crosby twice, there's a good chance none of this happens. On a personal level I'm upset that it's Crosby, specifically, who is injured again (any big star would draw a similar reaction, but there is no bigger star, and certainly none with a track record to make you fear how long-term this could be).

And that was just the first 10 minutes. But the Penguins' Chris Kunitz was not as reluctant to talk about it.

The net came loose during play, so the play was reviewed. He did not receive any further supplemental disciplinary action via the NHL Department of Player Safety.

There was more to come.

The head coach also announced that Conor Sheary has a concussion. Evgeni Malkin struck first for the Penguins and was followed by Justin Schultz. At that point in the series, Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby had, as usual, been the Capitals kryptonite.

The Capitals seized a 2-0 lead before the Penguins equalized with two late third-period goals only to fall on a power-play goal by Washington's Kevin Shattenkirk 3:13 into over-time.

Game Four is on Wednesday in Pittsburgh.

Whether it's nearly chopping a guy's finger off, hitting a player in the genital area, or himself administrating multiple neck-chops, Crosby is one throat-rip short of being a full-blown Stephen Seagal himself - so the high and mighty tones people were taking after the incident were a bit much. "We did it tonight. They never look for an excuse".
