GIFs: Sidney Crosby had a painful night in Penguins loss
Sidney Crosby has had better nights. He picked up point No. 100 but he was also hit in the face by a linesman and took a stick to the nether regions in a Penguins loss.
Sidney Crosby has had better nights than the one he had on Tuesday.
First, Crosby was inadvertently hit in the face by a linesman making a sign of a clear entry into the zone. Crosby had just come on the ice and was trying to skate into the play. Oops. (Via @MyRegularFace.)
That wasn't all the pain on the night for Crosby. Oh no, it would get worse when he took a faceoff opposite Manny Malhotra late in the game. After the draw Malhotra lifted his stick and, well, it caught Crosby in a tough spot. (Via @GoldandorSmith.)
Worst of all? The Penguins were beaten by the downtrodden Hurricanes 4-1 on home ice. It was just wasn't Crosby's night.
