Matt who?

Posted by drew19561 on November 04, 2010 at 09:16 AM

Cindy Crotchby is the biggest p---y in the league. He never challenges anyone that has the slightest chance of whipping his a--. It was a real surprise to see him actually fight a non-Euro player or someone bigger that Martin St. Louis.

Posted by rwlsn on November 06, 2010 at 08:42 PM

Crosby needs to stick to complaining to the Refs.

Posted by bradyj4 on November 04, 2010 at 12:20 PM

Niskanen never recovered after he slipped after catching crosby with a few early. Next time ladies... drop the buckets will ya?

Posted by kurri17 on November 03, 2010 at 11:13 PM

If you're going to fight, FIGHT! No more of this jersey pulling garbage.

Posted by smittyballz on November 04, 2010 at 11:11 AM

This is not a fight.. If you fight with a visor on why fight??????????? Does Iginla fight with a visor on? NO!! This was a hug fest and how do you land a punch with a shield on??? Sidney Crosby=Wayne Gretzky Half of a hockey player.. All skill with ZERO toughness... Gordie Howe, Cam Neely, and the list goes on of real hockey players!!!!!! Sid go take up figure skating!!! I think Disney on ice is looking for some highly skilled skaters!!!

Posted by LANER815 on November 04, 2010 at 12:37 AM

hahahaha typical crosby "fight". Attack them when they arent expecting and just start pulling their face towards the ice. GREAT job by Cindy. Lets see him square up with Carcillo or Hartnell. Oh, wait....he just "fights" no names in the fighting majors category.

Posted by Soulcrusher84 on November 04, 2010 at 02:43 AM

Are you kidding me? Take off the fucking visors. Both are pussies. Draw

Posted by kronvallizer78 on November 04, 2010 at 07:36 AM

Disgusting two visored punks pretend to be tough guys, lots of pathetic Pittsburgh homers around huh? How fitting that crybaby sid is involved. Draw

Posted by williplettrules on November 03, 2010 at 10:40 PM

Crosby is a pussy, most girls hit harder than that.

Posted by DocGomer on November 04, 2010 at 11:26 AM

I think if they actually stood and fought, instead of jerking each other around like they we playing ring around the posies there may have been a clear winner.

Posted by behn on defense on November 04, 2010 at 10:48 PM

fighting with the helmets on & the visors on the helmets ?? how stupid are these two ?? boring action - crosby needs Carcillo to mix it up with him then Rupp - Mc Enngland all jump in to get us some action --- more action in TNA wrestling.

Posted by Rancid Death on November 03, 2010 at 10:53 PM

this is a fight?

what a shit fight....crosby goes after a non-fighter, and does the ragdoll shit....gaaaaaaaaaaay....some with all of you who praise and stick up for him

Posted by panther88 on November 04, 2010 at 05:35 PM

There was a fight in that video? I just saw to guys rubbing each other's sweaters and fall over.

Posted by fightlikeaman on November 04, 2010 at 06:25 PM

Sindy Crosby is such a punk. I like how he picks the smallest and weakest guy to fight with. I know he is not an enforcer but come on. I found it funny that he chose not to dance with James Neil. They are about the same size. Rather he picks the one guy for sure he knows he can beat. Not much of a Captian if you ask me. I am glad he only comes to Dallas once a year.

Posted by RichardsFan91 on March 05, 2011 at 07:31 PM

crosby is a bitch, funny how he goes after someone like matt niskanen but would NEVER and i say NEVER fight richards or giroux, the refs dont want the face of hockey to get scratched up too bad. draw, most of his punches didnt land. they each landed 2-3 normal punches

Posted by theredbrigade on November 17, 2017 at 06:40 AM

Stick scoring goals bud. You both fight like anxious girls

Posted by esteef on November 04, 2010 at 12:19 AM

They both landed 1 maybe 2. Draw.

Posted by Pred2Win on November 04, 2010 at 10:27 PM

Wow!!! Gotta give props! Sid stood up! Did great!

Posted by seacritt on November 04, 2010 at 04:27 PM

Cindy Criesby. I have an idea for you. Why don't you challenge the man to a fight. Then skate out away from play. Drop the gloves. DROP YOUR F$%#ING VISOR. Square up. Be a man and fight. Every fight this [email protected]#%y is involved with he attacks the other player before they get set. He also is very careful to pick his spots and only jump featherweights. Why can't he be a man and at least fight a middle weight some time? Just saying...

Posted by plabute on November 03, 2010 at 11:40 PM

Why is it every time Crosby "fights" he tries to pull the guy down or some shit like that. I want to see him stand and throw, not try to yank the other guy down.

Posted by Swissfighter on November 04, 2010 at 06:27 PM

I don't understand why always all vote for Crosby. In this fight it's like in all other fights from Crosby. He's always grabbing his opposite and lands only a few punches. He has not the balls to stand up and fight face to face, he always has to put his opposite down to the ice. For me that is not to stand up. And if he would have some balls, he would compete with other superstars who also fight, like Iginla. this fight: Draw

Posted by DalStars29 on November 04, 2010 at 09:58 AM

Draw. I was at the game and this was off the face off from the Morrow fight. Niskanen had the first two punches that put Crosby to his knees, but Crosby got back up and controlled the rest. Stars win two fights and Pens 1 fight and this one is a draw. Puts Crosby in the box for a quarter of the period.

Posted by lb1631 on November 05, 2010 at 09:06 AM

Look at Cindy throw slaps. Wow he is so tough. Crap fight.

Posted by TraverseCity on November 03, 2010 at 10:58 PM

Another Crosby shake and sit. Surprised he didn't pull his jersey over the head....

Posted by FlyersFan6 on November 04, 2010 at 08:28 AM

Both loose for not taking their helmets off. Some credit for Cindy as she did toss Niskanen around for a hot second. Draw.

Posted by Snowskidad51 on November 04, 2010 at 12:57 PM

junk fight

Posted by DARCY T on November 04, 2010 at 12:56 PM

fighting crosby is so funny lol....niskanen landed best punches at the beginning....draw

Posted by GodBlessTheAmen on November 03, 2010 at 10:49 PM

domination WTF? there is not even one good punch, hug fest, dont even think that crosby won this, DRAW

Posted by FotiuNystrom on November 04, 2010 at 07:50 AM

girls gone wild

Posted by Behn Wilson on November 03, 2010 at 11:42 PM

Cat fight! Couldn't tell whether Niskanen was just frantically squirming, or if he was actually getting rag-dolled by Crosby. That being said, I'm not sure which one is more embarrassing..

Posted by Renslips on November 04, 2010 at 12:05 AM

Was Sid pushing or punching??? Niskanen threw 2, hit one, Sid threw about 50, landed 2 or 3 (that looked like pushes to the face - maybe jabs), Niskanen threw a couple at the end, maybe hit 1. Edge, no one really. Lots of arm movement but not much for real punches. I suppose one could give Sid the edge for the hand-action.

Posted by m4rine77 on November 03, 2010 at 10:52 PM

i mean most MEN who fight would throw off the visors but since its crosby and he's scared to mess up his makeup he kept on the visor. THEN all he did was try and tug niskanen to the ice, his last resort was to throw a slap. pathetic. this just backs up every bad thing that was ever said about this chick.

Posted by ewan_1987 on November 04, 2010 at 05:43 AM

If guys that have visors want to fight they should take their helmets of first

Posted by muckbarn on November 04, 2010 at 08:04 AM

Props to Crosby for dropping the mitts when he needs to. And for those chirping that Niskanen getting rag-dolled by Crosby is embarrassing I would suggest going to the gym with Crosby and watch him out lift you in every aspect.

Posted by Blotto72 on January 10, 2012 at 11:29 PM

Good quick fight both guys throwing some good ones

Posted by joesomebody on November 04, 2010 at 05:36 PM

LOL.. like BigBadBruins68 said..guess the better of the two girls won..LMAO

Posted by done on November 06, 2010 at 06:58 PM

What a tough guy and great Captain! ( lol) His buddy Letang gets beat down and then picks one of the smallest guys in the league that has no fighting experience to go after.. Now thats a captain! bet the boys in the room were pumped.

Posted by brymaster1 on November 03, 2010 at 11:32 PM

Crosby just showed that he is a dyke. he cant fight worth shit.

Posted by hockeyplayer168 on November 04, 2010 at 01:44 PM

Are people still ragging on Crosby? Really? Morrow picked a fight with Letang who has a bad hand and Crosby was sticking up for him. It was a good legit fight, so I don't really know what makes this "girly."

Posted by PA232 on November 05, 2010 at 11:56 AM

I'm not sure if Crosby ever landed a shot, but Niskanen loses because after his 1st shot, he looked like a Raggedy Andy in Crosby grip!

Posted by jlmcgui on November 04, 2010 at 10:02 PM

If Sid the Kid "wants" to fight, he better move up in class ... Matt Niskanen???? C'mon Sid.

Posted by ghjkfdhgfd on November 04, 2010 at 12:26 AM

Did you see how fast those fans got up when crosby dropped em!

Posted by Raoul Duke 708 on December 10, 2010 at 04:04 PM

Fighting with visors = garbage. Lame Upon review, it looks like Sid started to drop his bucket, then realized Niskanen had no plans to follow suit. Sid gets the w on that observation.

Posted by JRS91 on November 03, 2010 at 11:09 PM

m4rine77 must have autism. Crosby was in the process of removing his helmet. Niskanen didn't want to. Go back to jerking off to your Mike Richards poster.

Posted by jmk430 on November 04, 2010 at 11:46 AM

The Crosby supporters on here act like Cindy just went 10 with Tyson. I'm a Stars homer and I give the clear edge to Crosby. If you knew anything about Niskanen you would know that he is the LEAST likely to want to get in a fight. Cindy asked him out on a date and Nisky didn't want to stand him up so he obliged. But really, saying Cindy handled him? He looked more like a guy having a seizure while trying to throw punches. Weak.

Posted by jaybird6401 on November 05, 2010 at 12:18 AM

looked like to girls pulling each others hair

Posted by staceyb on November 05, 2010 at 05:52 AM

Sid the Kid handpicked his opponent--Morrow or Ott would have launched him into the third row. Morrow was already in the box.

Posted by Steelpride12 on November 03, 2010 at 10:30 PM

My boy Sid proves to all you Sid haters he can drop the gloves and fight. Sid dominated this one from the start, easy answer! GO PENS!

Posted by brendanmcintyre on November 04, 2010 at 11:47 AM

Shook him to the ground....threw like a girl, but won

Posted by masternater on November 06, 2010 at 02:58 PM

Sid wins this fight. Make all the excuses you need to for how he was able to give Niskanen the beat down, maybe the sun was in his eyes too. Haters gonna hate.

Posted by JBox3 on November 03, 2010 at 11:10 PM

Do some of you guys even watch the fights here? Win Crosby in a battle of non-fighters. At least Crosby has the balls to stand up for himself. I can only imagine Niskanen out there thinking he was gonna be the guy that WASN'T gonna go then hearing Sid of all people chirping. :) Both guys were game, that's all that matters.

Posted by Damian7979 on November 10, 2010 at 08:57 PM

Crosby with the win. He rag dolled the guy.

Posted by MrBadKarma on December 08, 2011 at 10:27 PM

Crosby won, but he didn't look like he wanted to go blow for blow. Ended it quick.

Posted by pvdrummer2000 on February 09, 2013 at 02:24 PM

Crosby has an outstanding record in his fights. He sure knows who to drop his gloves with.

Posted by blazers76 on November 04, 2010 at 10:39 AM

NIce work Sid. Watch that visor next time.

Posted by FrontLineAdmirals on December 25, 2010 at 08:33 PM

Crosby easily manhandled him

Posted by LA KING FANATIC on November 05, 2010 at 01:10 PM

Crosby kind of rag dolled him but that last cluster of punches was pretty cool..not a great fight but Sid the Kid is not afraid to stand up. i would question the judgement of letting him toss punches and risk a broken hand when he is the go to offensive guy on your team. Respect his lack of timidness to drop the gloves tho Win 4 Sid

Posted by billy jack on November 04, 2010 at 12:00 PM

sid the kid answered the bell,what can say but good job.

Posted by bigpucks on November 04, 2010 at 07:59 PM

Sid the Captain.

Posted by ThrowinHands9 on November 04, 2010 at 12:52 PM

Big time Flyers fan here so I'm gonna call it like I see it...win for Sid and it wasnt even close. The way he was rag dolling him around shows the strength that Crosby has...but I still hate him. :)

Posted by Ekki on November 04, 2010 at 12:54 PM

Not a great fight - but you've got to have respect for both guys, especially Crosby. Shows the class of this guy - he's not only one of the best players in the league but he also isn't above or afraid to drop his gloves.

Posted by Ogothorpe3 on November 05, 2010 at 01:14 PM

I love seeing Americans get beat up. I'm sick of people calling Sid a whiner. He's a champion and he's got an amazing compete level. If we should be questioning anybody it should be that Communist Ovechkin he plays the big mans game with none regard for anyone. He should drop the gloves or win a ring and then we can compare the two of them.

Posted by giantsfrey on November 03, 2010 at 11:29 PM

crosby had some good power in the late shots that ended up toppling niskanen. its just scary to think that he's punching a helmet and visor... being a pens fan i'd hate to see him break something in his hand over a shitty game like tonight. anyways, crosby with a win in an unorthodox, but decent fight.

Posted by shawn46 on November 04, 2010 at 09:42 AM

Crosby rag dolls that lil puke.... Quite a statement.... How many Ovi fights have I seen... hmmm... none.. unless you count that "reckless" knee he likes to toss....

Posted by zonahockeyfan on November 04, 2010 at 08:03 PM

the ko kid, sid def has the core strength for a pull around battle. win crosby

Posted by five4fightin87 on November 05, 2010 at 07:01 PM

Ok Crosby wins a fight and you fools still hate on him when 90% of you sissies would get your A$$ kicked by Crosby if you were even able to glide on the ice. Crosby wont and never should have to fight morrow or orr because thats why we have goddard and engellend. Give him the credit he deserves for standing up the niskabitch especially considering hes definetely the stronger one on skates. JUST SAYIN

Posted by rlavean on November 03, 2010 at 10:52 PM

Yeah i'll give crosby credit for fighting but he fought a no name who doesn't even fight

Posted by yngblonde1 on November 04, 2010 at 04:24 PM

Sid did a good job standing up for himself. I am surprised more idiots didn't vote him to lose just because he is not on their team winning games...

Posted by fernben8 on November 04, 2010 at 12:28 AM

Oh my...Godard and Engelland were just sent back to the minors. Not surprised of Crosby's strength and that he can throw them that well. Just wish he'd Whine less and represent the "C" better. Part of the maturing process I guess...

Posted by Myndmelt on November 03, 2010 at 10:53 PM

Wow Im impressed crosby!

Posted by Caps44 on November 08, 2010 at 10:31 PM

Lots of strength from Crosby, but too dangerous to have him fighting; not his job!

Unforunately fag seemed to come on top

Posted by Punchdaddy on November 04, 2010 at 10:13 PM

I'm laughing, but win Crosby. At least both combatants knew they were going to fight, and they were sort of face to face.

Posted by SombreMarch on November 04, 2010 at 06:10 AM

Obviously a win for Crosby

Posted by fade2black on November 06, 2010 at 04:53 PM

Sid with the W and as per usual its funny to see some of you clowns talking about Morrow or Ott jobbing Crosby if they got ahold of him. WTF? Really Nostrodomus? You dont say? Wow...How about Ott turning down Godard? I didnt see any of these "tough" Stars wanting to roll with Engelland either...

Posted by j sto on November 06, 2010 at 04:07 PM

Crosby with the W. For all the knuckle heads who say lose the visors Crosby wanted to but Niskanen did not. Watch the replay Sid starts to go buckets off but leaves it on when Niskanen refuses. Crosby stands up for himself unlike some other stars in this league.

Posted by Luckylukasko on November 04, 2010 at 07:44 PM

Nice

Posted by no123one on November 05, 2010 at 03:44 PM

Wow Crosby beat the much bigger Nikanen like a rented mule here! NICE! Crosby has yet to lose a fight! Can't say the same for Ovechicken. LOL. I thought Niskanen was a Finn, not a yank, LOL. Can > US

Posted by wpghockeyguy31 on November 04, 2010 at 05:13 PM

Wasn't a great fight but what at least its two genuine guys going at it, not 2 hired goons. For the several of you who said he jumped Niskanen, please take off your Crosby-hate blinders and watch again, they clearly squared up, there is no way you could possibly not see it.

crosby did it this time

Posted by boik on November 04, 2010 at 12:45 PM

Ok guys ....Give Crosby a damn break....The kid squarred off and you can clearly see on the tape he want to take his bucket off but Niskanen didn't want to...He landed good ones ...didn't hit the target a lot but at least he tried...You gotta give him the edge...He's a superstar in this league and he doesn't have to fight but he tried something to shaked this off in his game and try to wake up his teammates... For those who say he fights only small kid and guys who don't stand a chance...well Niskanen is 6' and 200 pounds so he's a big boy and should be able to take care of himself

Posted by dogace on November 04, 2010 at 01:24 PM

GREAT JOB SID! THATS WHAT LEADERS DO!!

Posted by saunders1507 on November 04, 2010 at 07:59 PM

Take the buckets off boys. Otherwise, a good fight from a couple of non-fighters.

Posted by Dscheck on November 03, 2010 at 11:15 PM

NICE! Sir Sidney not afraid to settle things himself... good to have "The King" and a "God(ard)" as your back-up.

Posted by Juha82 on November 04, 2010 at 05:00 AM

Crosby controlled this nice battle for the NARROW WIN. No clear win because not much landed and actually Niskanen landed few shots in this one. I know my shit when we are calling hockey fight i say. Crosby nicely ragdolled his opponent, showing some strenght actually.

Posted by nuckles88 on November 04, 2010 at 07:32 PM

I dont care what anyone says i friggin LOVE Crosby, pretty sweet fight and he dominates, what more can u ask from the guy? He should fight Ovechkin and show who the real #1 player in the league is

Posted by tattooedkingpin on November 04, 2010 at 01:02 PM

as much as it pains me to say this, W Crosby

Posted by The_Rickster on November 04, 2010 at 04:20 PM

Give Sid 'The Kid' full props. Not every superstar gives his team a lift by dropping the mits.

Posted by Burghthg on November 03, 2010 at 11:34 PM

Crosby landed more solid shots. Clear win for Crosby!!!

Posted by Joeyt426 on November 04, 2010 at 07:09 AM

Everyone is always bad mouthing Crosby. At least give the guy some credit for dropping the gloves!!!

Posted by reynard68 on November 04, 2010 at 05:31 PM

Win Crosby. Give him credit he will stand up for himself and his team. Niskanen probably has shaken baby syndrome now.

Posted by bruins rule on November 04, 2010 at 08:30 AM

crosby gets the win in this fight.

Posted by wheebill on November 05, 2010 at 10:52 PM

Crosby acquits himself well in a fight with another non-fighter. I know there are a lot of Crosby haters out there who will whine he didn't fight a more formidable opponent. Give it a rest. ALL of these guys fight guys in their weight class OR in within their capabilies. that being said, Crosby more than held his own. Haters beef about his whining. Crosaby NEVER takes a run at people and is always targeted for cheapshots and has shown a willingness to WILL fight. Ovechkin runs EVERYBODY and gutlessly fights NOBODY.

Posted by sneaky lefty on November 04, 2010 at 09:01 PM

I like that Sid the Kid is not afraid to mix it up. That makes him more dynamic than some of the all stars in the past. Crosby is SO STRONG on his skates! Win = Crosby

Posted by triple deke on November 03, 2010 at 11:24 PM

Crosby with the takedown.

Posted by Chet the Jet on November 08, 2010 at 01:14 PM

Gotta give Crosby his due; he doesn't dance - he throws! Niskanen early, but Crosby recovers, controls the scrap, and wins. And for the "haters" who whine that Crosby won't go with any tough customers, I seem to recall that he more than held his own against Andrew Ference a few years ago...

Posted by Paul_from_NoVa on November 04, 2010 at 12:41 AM

I guess I need to visit the site more: I'd never seen Sidney drop his gloves. Not bad technique for a relative half-pint, although Niskanen's no giant either.

Posted by mactee on November 04, 2010 at 12:59 AM

Posted by iambigd33 on November 04, 2010 at 09:12 PM

Sid the kid rag dolled Niskanen after Niskanen landed a couple of shots as did Sid in the begining of fight with the end dominated by sid

Posted by fireman69 on November 04, 2010 at 10:25 AM

Decent fight for Crosby i think , for all u crosby haters out there quit being so f'ng jealous u dont have him , he's not a fighter but he can hold his own like u saw tonight and that says alot for a superstar like him because 98% of the superstars in the NHL wouldnt drop the gloves for anything

Way to go Sid! The sad thing is that there are so many Crosby haters out there. Whats even sadder is that these people are f...ing idiots that dont know ANYTHING about hockey and ought to go back to sucking each other off.

crosby is definitely improving as a scrapper good to see he's not afraid to drop them.

Posted by brb210 on November 04, 2010 at 10:07 AM

Great punches landed by both players. Great fight for Crosby. The Pens needed momentum and he stepped up as captain. Match was close punch for punch but Sid controlled the fight with his strength rag dolling Niskanen.

Posted by aces50 on November 05, 2010 at 07:58 AM

Rag-dolling Niskanan. Win Crosby with ease. I love how people call Crosby names, yet they would all love to have him on their team.

Posted by Big Little Tank on November 04, 2010 at 11:45 AM

Complete RAG-DOLLING by the Kid. Just demolished Niskanen. Kinda the same fight style McSorely used to use. Whip'em around and thrown punches.

Posted by Spinner55 on November 04, 2010 at 10:27 AM

Whoever voted for Niskanen should be wearing sunglasses, selling pencils from a tin cup on a street corner. Sell enough pencils and buy a seeing eye dog to assist you with making credible post fight analyses.

Posted by jgutz20 on November 05, 2010 at 09:26 AM

Go ahead and let crosby break his hand in a meaningless fight against a team that means nothing to them. im all for the fighting but for crosby to say someone had to step up, he didnt give anyone the chance to as he immediately dropped the gloves.

Posted by JaCort16 on November 04, 2010 at 09:45 AM

It's funny I said after the the fight, I can't wait to see all the dumb jack asses on here say something bad about Sidney again just because they are jealous and hate him. He is the best player and I don't care who he fights, a fight is a fight. I forgot when you are in a fight you should never try to use your strength right? Dumb people just shut up, Crosby has fought more than Ovechkin, and he does well every time he fights. No he is not going to KO people like Engelland, Godard, Orr, but he is going to win with strength and quickness. Shit, thats what people who win fights do. All the haters are just so jealous of the guy it is funny....and as far as the dumb ass who said Ovechkin and Richards fight? That was in the preseason like 5 years ago and has been Richards like only win ever. Richards just got his ass beat by Cooke, and got whooped last year by Dubinsky.

Nice to see a superstar throw down every now and again....

Posted by PutOnTheFoil22 on November 04, 2010 at 06:16 AM

The kid rarely fights. His scraps are usually short and full of 1/2 punch combo's. That being said, this was one of his better fights. Crosby is a huge snatch but Niskanen is tampon.

Crosby won...................but I still hate him

Sid tags em...and rags em

Posted by hockey450 on November 04, 2010 at 10:45 AM

Crosby man handles Niskanen and makes him look like a fool, you sir who said this was a "cat fight" that is just stupid, Sid obviously controllled this whole fight throwing niskanen around like a rag doll and finishing him off. easy win for Sid

Posted by penguinsrcool9 on November 04, 2010 at 07:18 PM

As spoken from a biased Pens fan, but seeing Crosby kick the sh*t out of Niskanen was basically the highlight of my week. Great fight. It's obvious how pissed Crosby is about the game if he threw down the gloves right off the face-off. That's a first for him. And for the idiots who think he jumps people, watch the video, they drop the gloves at the same time. Chill. Not sure what the big deal about the visor is. Niskanen left his helmet on too. Or did people miss that in their need to find something to whine about.

Posted by leeban on November 04, 2010 at 07:53 PM

Crosby dropping the gloves and come out with a win.

Posted by ThrowdownSJ408 on November 03, 2010 at 11:11 PM

bahaha Crosby won

Posted by Winton89 on November 05, 2010 at 06:52 PM

Crosby's strong he threw Niskanen around at the end. Good fight, good win for Crosby.

Posted by jhurl on January 25, 2011 at 01:14 PM

niskanen fought crosby obvisouly he was gonna lose. you fight crosby you die so go tohell nskanen

sid for sure won this fight lmao with his now current teammate

crosby is a fag

Posted by dromano13 on November 04, 2010 at 12:58 PM

Crosby might have a yeast infection

Posted by Heyzeus on November 04, 2010 at 09:27 AM

Niskanen I think was just trying to keep Crosby in front of him...you know, so he wouldnt get punched in the taint/ass area..lol

Posted by jbaktai on November 04, 2010 at 08:41 AM

I'm gonna go with niskanen on this one, only because he landed the bombs and crosby landed more jabs and slaps. Once again, crosby fights a smaller guy with no fighting experiance (yah that apparently makes him super tough)... i'm willing to bet he never has the balls to square off with mike richards in his career (ovechkin did it ), and if he ever does i bet he prays to god again that the refs jump in and save his a SECOND time. That last part is just to keep pitsburgh/crosby fans in check, from saying they have the best ALL AROUND player in the world... not yet not even close. Although i will say hes a lot more watchable these days when he's not whining to the refs every shift.

Posted by hhsbaseball19 on November 04, 2010 at 04:34 PM

crosby sucks

Posted by mavrck22 on November 04, 2010 at 09:52 PM

Cindy Crosby fight?...LMAO....lets see him figh a Flyer...oh thats right, all he does against them is cry for penalties.....lol

Posted by mullet33 on November 04, 2010 at 09:13 AM

Fight wasn't worth watching - Crosby grabs a non-fighter and tries to make a statement. What was the statement "thanks for beating our team tonight".

Posted by flyerguy on November 04, 2010 at 09:57 AM

Honestly, is there a bigger candy arse coward in the league than cindy crosby? He jumps another non fighter and whines as usual about how Morrow went after Letang. Get your facts straight coward boy, Morrow kicked Letangs arse because he slashed him. Why didnt you take it up with Morrow instead? Answer, because you're a damn coward!!!!!!

Posted by Hockey97 on November 04, 2010 at 03:39 AM

Girl on girl.

Posted by shortfatguy on November 03, 2010 at 11:03 PM

Sid is lucky he got Nisky off balence. Matt was ready to fight and Sid just wanted to play tug-o-war with his jersey.

Posted by rusty5101 on November 04, 2010 at 01:36 AM

I gave the win to Niskanen

Posted by rustygate03 on February 22, 2011 at 05:01 PM

sid looks like a girl pulling hair the way he pulls at that jersey, everyone needs to get off his nuts when he fights because he barely lands punches and just rips at jersey... CAT FIGHT

Posted by slasher911 on November 04, 2010 at 07:33 PM

Ugh, I love bandwagon Pittsburgh fans claiming Crosby is some kind of big badass now for fighting the one dude on the ice with less career fights than himself. He might as well have fought the equipment manager, and he still wouldn't have taken off the visor.

Posted by mr3000hits05 on February 05, 2011 at 04:05 PM

Sid does it all

Posted by soccerprincess0 on November 04, 2010 at 02:00 PM

I love when Sidney Crosby fights because everyone calls him a baby but when he gets into a fight he can stand his own ground and beat up on the other players

Posted by MakaveliTrained on November 04, 2010 at 11:54 AM

Awww, Cindy drops the gloves, how cute

Posted by greenunc on November 05, 2010 at 11:00 AM

You forfeit the fight if you wear a visor throughout.

Posted by dodge8954 on November 04, 2010 at 07:12 AM

WTF was that? is that all Crosby does when he "fights"? he spazzes out and fights like a scared little pu$$y

Posted by JCobra67 on November 04, 2010 at 01:50 AM

Crosby won but he does the same thing every time. He grabs his opponent and just tries to jerk him down. I agree with the other guy, it would be nice if Crosby would actually stand and punch with someone even a pussy like Niskanen.

Posted by Rick16 on November 04, 2010 at 04:04 AM

i guess crosby gets the win but has he actually ever fought a guy?? i'm pretty sure he just likes to drop his gloves and tug on some jerseys so he gets on this site... big waste of time

Posted by BritishRedWing on November 04, 2010 at 12:37 PM

This was a draw. Watch the fight, again if you need to. Not one of either visor-wearer's punches landed. At the end, Crosby was trying to punch, but he was being held up by Niskanen. The announcers have it spot on, "Crosby has done this before, and doesn't mind doing it." Yes, fighting a non-fighter whilst still wearing his f'ing visor! I hate him and the Pens, so I am biased. But how can any of you Pen fans respect this little Hobbit?

Posted by mnhsoccer on November 04, 2010 at 11:08 AM

Although a lot of people give Crosby some credit for getting in his 5th career fight, when he drops the gloves without his visor is when ill stop calling him a HUGE baby!

Posted by Andyman on November 04, 2010 at 11:12 AM

Usually Sid likes someone else to hold the guy down so he can fondle their balls but he actually dropped his purse and threw a couple. He's still a bitch but he won a crappy fight

Posted by jarhead11b on November 04, 2010 at 07:38 AM

it was like watching two cheerleaders fighting over hair spray. Keep your gloves on Sid you look stupid when you try to look tough.

Posted by chad420 on November 04, 2010 at 05:20 PM

win Sid the kid who always wears his lid....even though it was a chick [email protected] least he drops em,well twice...but Ovis yet have a fighting major

Posted by trueblue3044 on November 04, 2010 at 01:10 PM

Looks like Niskanen lost his balance early and Sid just tried to throw him down. Both got shots in but Sid gets the W

Posted by coroner78 on November 04, 2010 at 12:32 AM

Its great to see a super star captain drop the gloves. Its beyond me why people always talk crap about Crosby when Ovechkin has yet to drop them. Crosby is a classy player.No ego nor arrogance just skill and passion.

Posted by gmr133 on November 05, 2010 at 11:56 AM

Give Sid credit. The team was asleep and getting pushed around and he's the captain so he did something about it. The guy's not a fighter, but he's obviously pretty strong and rag-dolled Niskanen pretty good. My question is, what the hell were Godard, Rupp, Asham, and Engelland doing in a game where Crosby, Kunitz, Kennedy, and Letang (with a stitched up hand) got into fights??? Couldn't one of those guys have grabbed Ott by the neck and punched him out?

Posted by Boogeyman2383 on November 04, 2010 at 08:05 AM

There's a new Sheriff in Pittsburgh gentlemen.

Posted by bolton510 on February 22, 2011 at 06:46 PM

And people say Crosby is a pretty boy! Not bad kid!

Posted by Kid Roberts on November 04, 2010 at 02:50 PM

Crosby isn't supposed to fight Morrow and Ott...He's a superstar and fights when he needs to.

Posted by buzzgun2000 on November 03, 2010 at 10:35 PM

Crosby goes with his patented rag doll shake and lands a couple in a battle of the visors.

Posted by hok1n on November 04, 2010 at 11:29 AM

Liked the fact, and did anyone notice, Crosby wanted to take off helmets. Impressed.

Posted by CFG1787 on November 04, 2010 at 08:29 PM

I'll give a slight edge to the captain

Posted by rghky43 on November 04, 2010 at 05:05 PM

I did appreciate seeing Crosby not being a gutless plug and actually fighting. But come on, if you are wearing a halfer, step back take off the buckets and do it right. Why would you want to punch a shield?

Posted by neiljc on November 04, 2010 at 09:59 PM

Crosby with some nice work again. I like what he is thinking, but it's only cool until he gets hurt doing it.

Posted by piney on November 04, 2010 at 04:33 PM

too many haters out there

Posted by muskokadangler on November 03, 2010 at 10:59 PM

That's showin em Syd.....instead of staying down like alot of other Superstars might have done..... HE Fought Threw it.....Makeing an exclamation point for all!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Nobody said he is a good fighter ITS THAT HE DID!!!!!!! YOU CHUMPY CHEESECAKE HATERS!!!!!!

Posted by Big_Fat_Dan on November 04, 2010 at 08:18 AM

Sid with the win. Good for him.

Posted by Nelstorm on November 09, 2010 at 06:15 PM

Nice fight by Crosby. Niskanen misses two blows and falls off balance, and Sid lands some decent hits to take the win.

Posted by PensRule on November 03, 2010 at 11:09 PM

niskanen just got tossed by SYDNEY CROSBY. williplettrules if you ask niskanen im sure he will tell you otherwise. im not even gonna comment on all you loosers who were too whimpy to admit that crosby just won a fight and called it a draw.

Posted by Messier3499 on November 04, 2010 at 09:11 AM

solid scrap - thats hockey

Posted by rocky7482 on November 04, 2010 at 04:57 PM

Sid the kid in a romp.....he doesn't drop them a lot, but you had better be ready for him.

Posted by 5fourfighting on November 04, 2010 at 07:48 AM

Sid the kid gets the win here. This is why I love crosby! Obviously upset at the letang go, sid doesnt take the draw and asks Matt to go. Got to love a guy like that. he sure does prove that he is a team player. Loved it guys!!!

Posted by baldy4420 on July 11, 2014 at 08:55 AM

You can't give crosby a win on that because shaking him around io distract them instead of fighting isnt a win. Every fight crosby is in ends with him throwing the guy on the ice because he threw two fights and doesnt want to give the other guy a chance to kick his ass like most people would do in a fair fight against this girl who is "great" at hockey.

Posted by BigBadBruins68 on November 04, 2010 at 01:34 AM

Niskanen shouldn't drop the gloves, he just gets beat up, though both did land. Still, Crosby wins and rag-dolls him in the process. I guess he was the stronger girl here.
