How about Sid and them Penguins? All of a sudden they reel off seven-straight wins and now Sid is Morph from the X-Men. Sidenote: how cheap was it that Morph was just some guy that could look like anyone. Maybe more of a cop-out than Rogue's "I can have everyone's powers if I touch them." After the Pens became the only team in NHL history to to win consecutive games after being down AND shut out through two periods, I went online looking for reactions to Sidney Crosby. They've been pretty loud and mostly positive in the wake of a game where Sid set up two quick goals to steal two points, a win and the hearts of the Air Canada Centre. NHL.com is all praise, seeing that today mark's one year since Sid's concussion/neck comeback. They had to throw Ovechkin a bone too: It seems like Sid's game even softens the hearts of many of his critics. Commenters on all of the NHL.com pieces, Pens fan or not, are pretty much understanding of where Sid is ascending. These are fun times to watch.  And with everyone saying "Sidney Crosby is this" or "Sidney Crosby is that," I went to notoriously troll-ish Google autocompletes: Still catty. I'll give their algorithms time to catch up. I took the phrase "Sidney Crosby is" to Twitter, where I came across this from PensNation_Ash: In tonight's photo gallery, with "87" clearly visible on the jersey, Sidney Crosby is listed as Paul Martin. And that's the picture at the top of this post. You can catch the Pens gallery from last night's game here. Morph Crosby is at some Martin/Crosby mid-point where people think he's Martin but he's already gettin' back to Sid form. Long story short there was a typo that one time. Go Pens.
