Gald this is on national TV so more people can see what a d-bag cindy crosby is. I like at the 1st intermission the new word I learned.
Schmozzle – A minor fight, usually an on-field quarrel between GAA players.
Pronounced “sheh-MOZZ-uhl”, this is GAA sporting slang coined by Irish radio presenter Michael O’Hehir. It refers to a minor altercation between players – quarrels that don’t escalate into serious physical violence. A bit of wrestling, a few shoves – ah sure, nothing but a shmozzle.
Really shows what kind of player Crosby is. Scoring ability aside, classless for knocking the glove away to start the whole thing. He should really refrain from fights because one good shoot on the chin and he will be out for a year again.
Cindy Crybaby is a PUNK,cheap shot weasel!!will never give any team credit for a victory,it's always Penguins gave them the game!!Can't stand his arrogance,and he is the biggest poor sport in the history of Hockey!!! With that out of the way,to the fight,Letang won both!! Wish Giroux would've knocked Crybaby's teeth out!!! By the way Cindy,when the Ref's step in your laying on the ice,stop throwing punches you PUNK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I'm not normally a hater on Crosby, but between going after the puck after it was covered, swiping the glove away and jawing at Giroux after he does that, resulting in a fight (and that's being charitable. Syd swung first), how in the name of Mario Lemieux does Crosby NOT get an Unsportsmanlike Conduct at least?! Only in the NHL would this not be considered instigation.
Anyway, lame fight. The official who almost hit Syd with a right cross a 3:55 was better than either of them. I'd want to joke that Crosby's middle name is "Bristow" but Jennifer Garner's character on "Alias" would have shut him down cold.
Amusing fashion display by the Flyer fan behind the box at 1:57
Crosby decides to scuffle with a random Flyer and has his teammate assist him. Giroux, seeing the double team, decides to take on Crosby. Crosby and Giroux are about level in terms of fighting experience.
Crosby is very unwilling to scrap with Giroux, until after the linesmen come in and restrain Giroux. Then, Crosby fires off a couple of Uppercuts that just drop Giroux.
Going to call it a draw. Yes, Crosby landed more hits and threw more punches. He also threw those punches when Giroux was being restrained by the officials. So, I am calling it a draw. The fight is over when the officials come in to break it up and are holding a guy back. If Giroux was not being held back, I would give the fight to Crosby. Giroux did not win this "fight" and Crosby did not lose. I cannot say either is deserving of the victory with the referees involved.
Crosby is showing he is not worthy of the hype he receives. If he doesn't start showing maturity, someone is going to force it on him.
