    I don’t have any horses in this race – dirty hit. 1 game suspension.

  14. BLIzzARDxMAYHEM says:

    That didn’t deserve a 5 minute major but of course things are different when it’s Crosby who takes the hit.

  15. Tom Witner says:

    if you can’t beat them, just cross check the best player on earth with a history of concussions in the head since the countless other cheap shots haven’t been successful.

    There wasn’t a lot Niskanen could do there, Sid went right into his path. Think the bigger problem there was the guy who slashed him before that(was it Ovie?). If Crosby isn’t falling, refs wouldn’t have even called that a penalty as it would have been a crosscheck to the back/side.

    Really ugly thing to see, just not sure Niskanen deserves the blame he is getting

  17. AJAX BEATZ says:

    If it was anyone except Crosby it would not be a game. Everyone knows it too.

  18. BCYT says:

    If Crosby did that to niskanen it wouldn’t have been called, js
