Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Sid The Kid Gets Angry — 11/3/10
Sidney Crosby can do it all. As the captain and leader of his Pittsburgh Penguins, he has the ability to score the big goal, make a great play to set up one of his teammate, and apparently he can even drop the gloves when his team needs a spark. Crosby hasn’t gotten into many fight over the course of his NHL career (five, including this on, to be exact), but after seeing the Stars’ Brendan Morrow go after teammate Kris Letang, Sid knew he had to step up and send a message to the opposition.
With only four minutes in penalties going into last night’s game, and the Wings’ Pavel Datsyuk already engaging in a fight this season, Crosby appeared to have an early shot at winning the Lady Byng Trophy, but he threw that all away by dropping the gloves and challenging Matt Niskanen to a fight. And any time Crosby decides to go for a round, it is hard not to award such efforts with the “Frozen Fisticuffs Fight of the Night.”
