Crosby gets knee-on-knee scare


TSN.ca Staff



10/1/2004

RIMOUSKI - Rimouski scoring sensation Sidney Crosby had to be helped off the ice after a knee-on-knee collision in a 4-2 Friday night loss against the Halifax Mooseheads.



In the first period of the game, Crosby skated over the blue-line and took a knee-on-knee hit from Halifax centre Frederik Cabana. The 17-year-old had to be helped off the ice by a team trainer but returned to the game in the second period. Reports said he had a bad charley horse and some swelling around his knee, but no structural damage.



Cabana was given a five-minute major and a game misconduct for the hit and was also involved in a fight with Rimouski defenceman Patrick Coulombe.



Later, Oceanic skater Alexandre Vachon lined up for the face-off across from Halifax star Petr Vrana and immediately started punching down on him without paying attention to the puck. Halifax defenceman Luciano Lomanno then jumped in and ended up with a bad cut above his eye, while the rest of the players brawled.



Crosby, expected to be the first overall in the NHL entry draft, has collected four goals and 16 assists in his first six games of the season. He had an assist before the collision.



It marks the second time this year that the Rimouski centre has endured heavy punishment at the hands of the rival Mooseheads. In February, the Oceanic toyed with the idea of not dressing him for two road games in protest of referees being lax on penalty calls at Crosby's expense.



The Oceanic argued that referees allowed too much physical abuse of their superstar in a home game against Halifax when a number of big hits and 'cheap shots' after the play went unpunished.

I heard it was a blatant knee hit on Sidney, and could have been really bad. Ah, well, I don't really care, they need to stop babying this kid.

Good for the Mooseheads. You don't take it easy on a kid just because he's good.

Cabana is the kid someone compared to Tucker after we drafted him
