Right before Sidney Crosby suffered his concussion, he was undoubtedly playing the best hockey we've ever seen him play. Then he was gone from the game for the better part of two years. It's taken Crosby 25 games to get back to where he was. There were countless "Jesus, did you see what Crosby just did" moments in this game. There was just something about his performance in this one that reminded us of the pre-concussion Sid. What's scary is that he was already leading the league in points before this.
But it wasn't just Crosby. The offense continued to roll with goals from James Neal and Pascal Dupuis. Paul Martin got credit for a goal that originally looked like Beau Bennett's.
This was one of the most entertaining games of the season. Another one that immediately comes to mind is that game in Winnipeg early in the season. It's just great hockey. The score didn't get out of hand. Every player on the ice had...

The bitter antagonism between the respective fanbases...
Another Saturday night special in Canada. The Pens blew a late lead, but Sidney Crosby capped maybe one his best games since his concussion, with the shootout winner.
Not all good news for the Pens though. Evgeni Malkin took a monster hit in the third period and only came back for one shift. It appeared that his shoulder was hurt. But that is mere speculation.
If you’re going to wear a “Sidney Crosby is a whiny little ******** shirt to a Flyers-Penguins game and sit behind the bench, try to pick the game when Sids doesn’t drop three assists on your ass. It’s not a good look. Pens fans beat me up for even posting it on Twitter.
It also doesn’t help when the Flyers had a 4-1 lead. Still, it’s good to see Philly fans being assholes...

Losing the reigning Hart Trophy winner for an extended period of time is never ideal, but the Pittsburgh Penguins seem equipped with enough weapons to make the absence of Evgeni Malkin relatively painless.
The Boston Bruins are ready to test that theory.
