Sidney did it again last night with another “How did he do that moment?”
Sidney doesn’t really have an explanation for how he does what he does. He just does it!
So if you’re looking for clarity on how the Pittsburgh Penguins star managed to knock a pass from Jake Guentzel out of the air , deflect it forward to the front of his stick before tapping it by one of the best goaltenders on the planet to spark his team to a 5-3 win over Montreal, look elsewhere.
“You try to finish plays out in practice,” Crosby said after the 406th goal of his career, one unlike the 405 that came before it. “Sometimes it works out that you can do it in the game and sometimes it doesn’t. Fortunately, it did today.”
Montreal rallied from a two-goal deficit to take a 3-2 lead 14:24 into the third on Jacob de la Rose’s fourth goal of the season. The advantage lasted less than a minute. Guentzel chipped a pass to Crosby and Crosby did the rest.
Keep rockin’ the rink Sid!
