A 5-year-old girl sent Sidney Crosby an absolutely adorable letter to wish him well after he was hit by a puck in the mouth over the weekend.
The letter states:
I am sorry you got hit by a puck.
I hope the tooth fairy brings you a dollar.
The arrow instructs Crosby to flip to the back of the page where the young girl wrote: From Makenzie. Her mother says her daughter’s name was too long to fit on the front.
The girl’s mother, Wendy Roskwitalski, shared a picture of the letter with ESPN via Facebook. She says that her daughter also colored a picture for Crosby which they mailed to him.
Crosby lost some teeth when he was hit by a deflected puck last Saturday. He was later diagnosed with a broken jaw for which he had surgery. Though he is out indefinitely and currently on an all-liquid diet, a great letter like that has to lift his spirits.
Between this letter and the ones sent to Brandon Jacobs and Kyle Williams, we have seen many times over that young sports fans are...
BEST OF MAXIM
GET WELL SOON
Sidney Crosby is unable to speak as he recovers from his broken jaw. He is also on a liquid diet for the foreseeable future.
In about one of the most adorable things you will ever see, Makenzie Roskwitalski, a five-year-old girl and obvious fan of Sidney Crosby, sent the Pittsburgh Penguins superstar a priceless letter to boost the player’s spirits after he had his jaw fractured when he was drilled by a puck in the face during a game last weekend. Along with the fractured jaw, Crosby, who according to...

In Pittsburgh's first game without star Sidney Crosby, the Penguins were run out of their own gym by the Buffalo Sabres, snapping the win streak.
Before I say what I am about to say, let me preface it by saying that I am being the Devil’s advocate. What I am about to suggest may very well happen, but I could very well be wrong too. Therefore, without further ado,
The Chicago Blackhawks or Pittsburgh Penguins will not win the Stanley Cup.
In a shortened year in which these two teams have absolutely dominated the league...
It simply may be a coincidence that the Pittsburgh Penguins have dropped both games without injured captain Sidney Crosby following their impressive 15-game winning streak.
The New York Rangers, meanwhile, hope it's more than just happenstance that they played so well with their newest additions.

The streaking Pittsburgh Penguins have lost their captain.
But that's OK, they say. Not only have the Penguins grown accustomed to playing without Sidney Crosby in recent years, they also just traded for two other team captains.

All good things eventually come to an end. In the case of the Pittsburgh Penguins, their winning streak failed to reach 16 games as the Buffalo Sabres won at home by a score of 4-1.
Now that their streak is officially a thing of the past, it's time to look back and marvel at what the Penguins were able to accomplish.
Hockey analysts and fans will surely debate which...
The Pittsburgh Penguins winning streak stands at 15 games entering the week, two shy of the NHL record. It certainly doesnt appear that captain Sidney Crosby (broken jaw) will be back in time to help lead the Pens get there. Cushioning the departure of the leagues leading scorer (56 points) will be a trio of acquisitions: Jarome Iginla, Brenden Morrow and Douglas Murray. Count on...
