Legit penalty shot, and sweet goal by Eriksson. Refs aren't to blame for the current score.
Also, for two players who never fight, I'd say Crosby got the win over Niskanen basically by throwing him around the whole time....not many punches connected though.
It was a penalty no doubt, but when the guy wasn't even on a breakaway and was essentially at the exact same point on the ice, it seemed like a strange call to make it a penalty shot. I'd say it wasn't a cut and dry penalty shot call, but Johnson should have stopped it either way.
Crosby showing the world why canadians have heart, grit, and passion.
Truly the best hockey player on this land we call earth today
Funny, I was going to say that Crosby felt he had something to prove after all the Russians fighting early this season and in the pre-season. Except, of course, I was going to use the sarcastic emoticon...
So Morrow is supposed to check the injury list and make sure the guy he's going after doesn't have an owie? If Letang threw the gloves, he's willing to go. If the hand is really a huge deal, don't throw, but the boo hoo crew needs to stop.
Crosby won his fight against Niskanen, and then Benn got the best of Kunitz.
