VIDEO: Sidney Crosby weaves through Isles to score OT winner
Sidney Crosby is pretty good at this hockey thing. He weaved through the Islanders D like they were standing still to score an awesome game-winner in OT on Tuesday.
Sidney Crosby might have a future in this hockey thing.
The Pittsburgh Penguins fell into an early 2-0 hole to the Islanders on Tuesday night before coming back to force the game into overtime. The Penguins couldn't convert on a power play in the extra session but not long after Crosby decided to basically be his own power play.
Just watch him weave through three defenders for yourself.
There's one word that comes to mind after that: Wow. He made that look a lot easier than it should because, well, he's Sidney Crosby. Love him or hate him, you can't deny the man has supreme talent because not many in the NHL could do that (even if it was against the Islanders).
The scary thing? It was just another Tuesday night for Crosby (not really, it was one of his very best and that's saying something). It was just another goal too, his second in the game. He's kinda good.
Not to be lost in the excellent offensive play and finish for the game-winning goal was the defensive play by Crosby that started the whole thing on the backcheck. From start to finish it was awesome.
With the goal, Crosby maintained his spot atop the NHL scoring race after he was caught earlier in the night by his teammate Evgeni Malkin. He has 15 goals and 23 assists in just 29 games.
