Right or wrong, Sidney Crosby is perceived as a crybaby by fans across the NHL. Some begrudgingly acknowledge his tremendous skill but bemoan his pleas to the referees.

The reputation hits so hard even pilots are making wisecracks about Crosby. A Jet Blue pilot flying media members (and others) from Pittsburgh to Boston on Tuesday morning after the Bruins took a 2-0 series lead over the Penguins on Monday night decided to try his attempt at humor over the loudspeaker.

Nothing like a little salt in the wound. The Bruins won the first two games in Pittsburgh by a combined score of 9-1.
