For whatever reason, Buffalo could be at the top of their game and as soon as they play Pittsburgh, everything goes awry. Why? Simply the reason was not Sidney Crosby, who scored above. However, the Sabres just seem to not play quite as well against Pittsburgh and that is the difference between giving up one or two goals and five. Crosby was close, real close to nabbing the Fantasy POTN but not quite. The problem is in the grand scheme of things, getting that unexpected performance took a little more priority over even a nice "passing display".
Last night, there were a lot of people surprised at the fight of Colorado and truthfully even I was hesitant of playing a few guys. However, in the end, it somehow all paid off and resulted in that very Fantasy POTN.

Penguins star Sidney Crosby, back in the lineup for a handful of games after dealing with concussion symptoms, was down on the ice for about a minute when he was bloodied by a puck to the face.
Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby became the NHL's seventh-youngest player to score his 600th career point.
Crosby achieved the plateau in the second period at Buffalo on Friday night, when he set up James Neal's power-play goal. It was Crosby's third point of the night after he assisted on Evgeni Malkin's goal and also scored in the first period.
Poor kid, can’t buy a break these days – concussions & nose bleeds. This running nose resulted after getting hit in the face with a puck last night against the Islanders. He’d return, though, and the Pens would lose 5-3. In Final Four news, so a college football playoff system wouldn’t work because teams would miss school time. right? The Louisville basketball team has...
Pittsburgh Penguins superstar Sidney Crosby briefly went to the locker room when he was bloodied after taking a puck to the face during Thursday's game.
Crosby was clipped by a clearing attempt by New York Islanders defenseman Dylan Reese in the first two minutes of the second period.
Playing in his ninth game since making his second comeback from concussion-like symptoms,...
After awhile, you just have to feel bad for Sidney Crosby as he suffered yet another head injury during last night's game against the New York Islanders.
Crosby was hit in the face with a puck shot by defenseman Dylan Reese in the second period and left the game with a bloody nose:
It really seems like the hockey gods don’t want Sidney Crosby out there.Just a few weeks into his extended return, he gets smacked in the nose with an errant puck.He returned to the game a little bit later, so it doesn’t look like he’ll be missing any more time. But still, that can’t feel good.This isn’t the first time Crosby’s taken a puck to the nose. But this time...
Sidney Crosby didn’t score a point in two games against the Islanders and was a -3; that’s all it took for some Penguins fans to start talking **** on the best player in the world. And that was after his face exploded from taking a puck to the nose.
Well, Sid gave those geniuses a big suck it last night by picking up four points, including his 600th career point, while the Pens...
Sore nose and all, Sidney Crosby had a goal and three assists to help the Pittsburgh Penguins snap a mini-slump with a 4-3 victory over Buffalo on Friday night that slowed the Sabres' late-season surge.
It was Crosby's third four-point game in a season in which concussion troubles have limited him to 18 games. And it came after he was held without a point in his past two...
A swollen nose couldn't stop Sidney Crosby from enjoying a four-point night. And neither could Ryan Miller and the Buffalo Sabres.
''Not really getting much air through there right now,'' Crosby said Friday night, referring to the cut he wore on the left side of his nose after being struck by a puck a night earlier on Long Island. ''But other than that...

Nassau Coliseum has not been kind to Sidney Crosby the last couple years. The Islanders stopped Crosbyâs 25-game point streak Dec. 29, 2010 with goalie Rick DiPietro celebrating the 2-1 shootout win like a Game 7 and then, last night,...
