Not much of a fight. Crosby only shots that landed, plus the take down

Posted by BigBird on April 15, 2012 at 08:53 PM

Who the hell voted for Giroux? He didn't throw a punch, caught maybe one or two, can't tell if Crosby's big uppercut hit anything. Crosby was cruisin' for a bruisin', but nobody gave it to him.

Posted by sheriffbart77 on April 15, 2012 at 10:39 PM

Anyone that votes for Giroux and just ignores the Kid's uppercut is biased. Win goes to Crosby

Posted by Spug on April 15, 2012 at 10:30 PM

Anyone who voted for the guy that landed no punches and got taken down should be banned from this site for being retarded. Crosby with the only thing landed in a terrible fight.

Posted by FreeCandy on April 15, 2012 at 06:45 PM

The booping of the glove was priceless.

Posted by D-Moneysaccount on April 15, 2012 at 10:32 PM

Anyone that says that Crosby didnt win this fight is obviously biased. he landed 2 shots and had the take down. dont get me wrong this was not a good fight but Crosby won

Posted by shawn46 on April 16, 2012 at 09:16 AM

Yap all you want about Crosby.... He wasnt going to take Filthy laying down ... the glove tap.. Priceless..... The beating of Giroux... even better.... and I note the blood on Crosby's jersey..... wasn't his....

Posted by nightfallfilms on April 15, 2012 at 10:23 PM

Crosby starts throwing after the linesmen jumps classless punk.

Posted by dorian on April 15, 2012 at 06:46 PM

Dear NHL: more Jarome Iginla and less - MUCH LESS - Sidney Crosby please

Posted by crimedogg on April 15, 2012 at 05:16 PM

Funny or just expected that Crosby only starts throwing punches when the linesman has Giroux all tied up.

Posted by ShelleyF on April 15, 2012 at 07:15 PM

I always enjoy seeing big name players go at it.

Posted by ChakoSah on April 15, 2012 at 05:41 PM

Swinging purses. Both of them. Loved Crosby knocking Voracek's glove away though. Got a good laugh out of me.

Posted by mmadced on April 15, 2012 at 05:41 PM

sid the kid punches the punk in the face for the easy win

Posted by slarrivee11 on April 16, 2012 at 10:55 AM

I love how captain Crosby runs his mouth knowing the nhl isn't going to let anyone kick his sorry ass! Anyone drops the glove with him gets broken up before he can get hit. He's an over paid punk.

Posted by AbelM on April 16, 2012 at 01:38 AM

crosby = punk a ss b1tch

Posted by cullins10 on April 18, 2012 at 01:02 AM

Crosby just hugged Giroux until he saw his buddy the linesman come in. Then he decided to throw a couple cheap ones, just like all his fights.

Posted by Gillies>Schultz on May 08, 2017 at 06:37 PM

This wasn't a fight, but Letang gave it to Timonen later in the footage, does he know how to fight or what

Posted by iluvdonuts on April 17, 2012 at 04:20 PM

crosby's a classless jerk. expects everyone to kiss his ass and then complains when they don't. it's always someone else's fault when he does something wrong. his parents should be fined for raising an idiot. his uppercut barely hit air much less giroux. this was a nothing fight. draw, nobody landed anything

Posted by turk1 on April 16, 2012 at 01:35 PM

As usual Crosby can only get the better of someone when the ref or a teammate is holding them. Crosby is a great hockey player but a wus of a person. He only gets in the shots when his opponent has a ref on his back.

Posted by JasonMason on April 15, 2012 at 08:03 PM

To all the Crosby fans, that really wasn't a fight. It started with the ref splitting the two apart and Crosby got 2 punches in during that process that's it. Overall though, it lasted 5 seconds. Draw.

Posted by devsfan87 on April 16, 2012 at 09:41 PM

The fight was nothing,. There is a faction that has a 'man crush' on Crosby. Including NBC Sports. Crosby is a high skill player that when he's playing hockey is a joy to watch. However, he has earned a reputation from his peers in the NHL as a punkish and dirty player. That move swatting Voracek's glove was rec league horseshit. That's why Crosby gets not respect. That's why I agree with Milbury and Don Cherry.

Posted by RoosterJay55 on April 17, 2012 at 11:47 AM

Typical pu&&y move by Crosby, wait for Linesman to come in then start throwing punches at Giroux.

Posted by mudman55 on April 16, 2012 at 07:48 AM

Went with a draw. Have no issue with Crosby knocking the glove away- just a little playoff gamesmanship. Is it me, or have there been a lot more fights this postseason than last year? And just a quick comment about Cooke, cuz someone else brought it up. I give Matt Cooke credit- he's cleaned up his act. It doesn't absolve him for past sins, but he really seems to have gotten the message. One for the Philly fans: "If I can change, and you can change, then everybody can change!"

Posted by wingsfan1981 on April 17, 2012 at 05:32 PM

let some of the big boys from the wings at him that bring him down to size

Draw, can't stand Crosby, little F 'IN cry baby. Some one pound him please!!!

Posted by hizzy4shizzy on April 15, 2012 at 10:45 PM

crosby waited for linesmen to grab hold of giroux before throwing any punches. weak. not as weak as hair pulling, but weak anyway.

Posted by pirates4ever on April 18, 2012 at 01:15 PM

How can anyone think that crosby won this fight???? He is such a pussbag it aint funny. Maybe cause of this fight he will miss another few seasons for concussion like symptoms. Once a pussy always a pussy.

Posted by bammer24 on April 18, 2012 at 01:47 AM

Sidney is showing one thing when you want to win a game don`t count on him. His leadership in this game sucks.If I was a fan of the Pens I would be asking 2 games down why is my star player screwing around and then taken off the ice for 5 minutes.The GM should talk to the coach and the team.We should be playing Hockey first.Not in the Playoffs do you do that crap like Asham,Neal and Adams also what suspensions for being DUMB ASSES.starting with SID..Mario I thought you were smarter than this but this is the Dumbest Team Ever.With that Talent.I don`t care who wins but as you read all this crap people are just happy to win the the fights and not the games so I guess thats what they will get.I have an idea that would make all your fans feel like it`s Christmas don`t dress Sid for the last game and just use Big Mac.That way all the Pens fans can have one big huge Pittsburgh Hockey Fight Orgasm.While the Flyers get ready for the next round.HEY PENS FANS WHO`S LAUGHING NOW SID LED YOUR TEAM DOWN THE DRAIN EVEN YOUR HEAD COACH SAID SO.TONIGHT 4-0 IT`S HIS FAULT.NO NEAL-ADAMS--ASHAM..NO BRAINS.

Posted by probie4life on April 15, 2012 at 07:21 PM

Wish Giroux had connected with that uppercut and put Cindy's teeth into the 5th row! 1 more and Cindy and the rest of the punk penguins can start playing some golf!

Posted by efsfl22 on April 17, 2012 at 12:58 PM

Good lord Crosby is a puss

Posted by deadhorse13 on January 28, 2016 at 04:45 PM

i give Giroux the fight because he actually threw a punch before the refs had the players wrapped up

Posted by gmr133 on April 16, 2012 at 10:50 AM

Two guys who should keep their gloves on. I appreciate the passion for their teams, but go score goals and leave the rough stuff to the guys who get paid to do it. Slight edge Crosby--whenever he gets in these things he kind of clicks out and gets hysterical--a little spooky.

Posted by MACMAN214 on April 16, 2012 at 01:34 PM

My vote for the Clit Cup still goes to Cindy Crosby, for being the biggest wussy in the league.

Posted by jimbalaya on April 23, 2012 at 07:42 PM

Anyone that calls this a fight is biased one way or the other. One or two punches does not make a fight. These guys both need to have the sand cleaned out of their vaginas. Give me a break.

Posted by FotiuNystrom on February 21, 2015 at 03:39 PM

throw 2 and pull em down...the Sid school of fighting

Posted by ZeroCool6687 on November 21, 2012 at 04:39 PM

Love seeing the bonehead comments out here calling out Crosby when you have an entirely true bitch in Claude Giroux involved. Giroux wanted nothing to do with Sid till his back was turned and Sid landed the only shots... people say Sid only threw after the linesmen shows up... looked to me like he threw after Claude tossed one of the worst uppercut attempts I have ever seen. This was barely a fight and I would call it a draw really but if you pick a winner and it wasnt Sid it means your blind.

Posted by Commish19 on April 17, 2012 at 05:37 PM

Anyone who even considers this anything but a draw is insane, let alone an actual fight. Sausage lips is going to get killed one day from running his mouth.

Posted by closer44 on April 16, 2012 at 12:29 AM

Pointless. Rated it a 1 and a draw.

Posted by DARCY T on April 16, 2012 at 01:19 PM

fight itself wasnt that good but i love it anyway.pure hatred between these 2 teams and they finally showed it.crosby proves why he is so hated.he deserved a beating for that double whack across bryzgalov's catcher but it was only giroux so it's just draw and actiually i laughed at what crosby did with voracek's glove

Posted by wern77 on April 18, 2012 at 11:08 PM

Stick to scoring goals.

Posted by fenians79 on April 16, 2012 at 12:04 PM

Typical Crosby always yacking he'll probably be out for 6 months now.

Posted by turtleman on April 17, 2012 at 11:18 AM

Crosby is a whiny punk, he picked his fight with the best sissified option on the ice. Running your mouth doesn't make you a power forward. Score goals, get your gazillion assists and shut the F up.

Posted by radwansk on April 16, 2012 at 12:18 AM

Classic Crosby, skate away or only engage when the other guy is tangled up.

Posted by BigmomaJLG on April 15, 2012 at 08:37 PM

Giroux couldnt even touch crosby

Posted by jpdoc26 on April 16, 2012 at 07:10 PM

I mean Crosby obviously won. But it was a weak fight. Giroux tried throwing punches during the scrum after the first goal the Flyers scored and he looked like a chick.

Posted by Elchopador on December 05, 2013 at 12:57 AM

Giroux really didn't have a chance to put up a fight. Not sure how people can say he won that one.

Posted by ghjkfdhgfd on April 15, 2012 at 11:27 PM

Posted by GreatMurray on April 15, 2012 at 08:13 PM

Both GM's have to be getting O2 right about now. The 2 best players in the league fighting!!! Crosby needs to have his head reexamined. 1 good right and it is probably over for him forever....that would really suck whether or not you like him. I think Giroux also had a concussion issue before. Crosby lands a couple of good punches. He must be a pretty strong little guy. He grabbed Curley and yanked him away from Neal at the end without much trouble.

Posted by sndaysnipr on April 19, 2012 at 11:50 PM

Crosby laced him and a takedown.

Posted by Mo Wanchuk on April 16, 2012 at 11:40 AM

Crosby's uppercut leveled Giroux. Crosby won hands down.

Girl move by Crosby. Hits the glove out of the way, pulls Giroux down and then throws punches after the linesman has Giroux tied up.

Posted by Langway on April 16, 2012 at 10:16 AM

Crosby waits until the linesman step in to throw punches. He is the biggest pussy in the NHL bar none.

Posted by Astro32 on April 16, 2012 at 01:43 PM

Crosby is the biggest puss in any professional sport, including soccer. Crosby vs. David Beckham, lets see it.

Posted by puckstopper30 on April 15, 2012 at 08:42 PM

Crosby starts it ...hacking the goalie...Timmonen..the glove....and then tough guy Crosby throws a punch at Giroux once the refs are there breaking it up....so he can't get hit. Crosby is without a doubt the biggest no sack, cry baby, wuss player of his caliber ever. The league does not need him or his mentor Mario Lemieux. A little diving and he would make a good Canuck.

Posted by bigdog2007 on April 15, 2012 at 09:52 PM

Milbury was exactly right about Crosby. He is a punk. Period.

Posted by beantown on April 15, 2012 at 06:50 PM

I cant imagine there is a single player in the NHL that respects or likes Sydney Crosby. Even his teammates must think he is a jerk off.

Posted by tonetone1 on April 16, 2012 at 12:12 AM

Sid didnt throw a punch until the ref was holding G, Dude should be ashamed of himself. Since Sid got back he's been attempting the goon play, and he's way too soft for that!

Posted by Ghostcuz on April 16, 2012 at 01:08 AM

Crosby got his lip split. Giroux wins

Posted by rnez on April 16, 2012 at 11:03 AM

is crimedogg the only other one who notices that giroux isnt trying to hit him but hold him? and the only time crosby throws anything is when the ref steps in the way. crosby doesnt do s*** unless the other guy is helpless. good player, big pussy

Posted by dougbauer3 on April 17, 2012 at 06:11 PM

Anyone who didn't watch the whole game shouldn't be allowed to comment on this fight. Any time there was a scrap, Crosby would do some passive-aggressive, fake tough guy stuff, then either hide behind the refs or let someone else fight his battles. That's why Adams fought Hartnell; cuz he knew that Scotty H would beat the living s*** out of Crosby. He is a dirty player and a bum, as evidenced by his only punch coming when the linesman pulled Giroux's arms down. He is a disgrace to the honor of hockey

Posted by EDDUBBS on April 21, 2012 at 09:32 PM

Crosby is the most hated pussy in the league. I am waiting to see you laying there motionless on the ice where you really belong you biyatch,

Posted by Dampland on April 15, 2012 at 09:02 PM

Wow has Crosby turned into a little D-bag this year. Just pathetic.

Posted by chrisuko on April 15, 2012 at 08:29 PM

While nothing happened, I'm giving the win to Giroux because Crosby is the most babied, classless player in the NHL along with Neal and Malkin. His classless move starts the whole thing and Giroux did what a true leader would do, and stepped in- something that a pussy like Crosby would never do. On top of this, Crosby left a glove on in the fight, and only tried to punch Giroux when the refs intervened, also trying to rub Giroux's head on the ice at the end. He's a dirty fucking player and will never ever gain my respect

Posted by Kenney21 on August 26, 2012 at 07:02 PM

Another gutless move by Crosby throwing when the linesmen tie up Giroux.

Posted by ender554 on April 17, 2012 at 06:54 PM

Giroux pretty much got the only real hit in then they went down to the ice with refs on them. How could anyone vote crosby? Typical Penguin homers

Posted by paulrc3392 on November 28, 2012 at 10:50 AM

I loved seeing a star like Giroux step in to fight for a well respected vet like Timonen. Giroux banged without a helmet and Crosby kept his on. The match up was better than the actual fight, more of a wrestling match. If the damn lockout would end maybe we could see a rematch.

Posted by peteybrown on April 15, 2012 at 08:02 PM

Giroux got in an upper cut. The cry baby landed one after the refs got in. Giroux with the edge.

Posted by Hezekia on April 16, 2012 at 12:22 AM

Crosby needs leveled. Watch the Hartnell/Adams fight from this game. Crosby comes from behind and tries pulling Hartnell down, and when Hartnell wants to go with him he backs off and lets Adams fight him instead. Punk. I wouldn't be at all surprised if Sid has a case of the Philly flu for Game 4

Posted by Ez2confuze on August 09, 2012 at 06:01 AM

Giroux is a great talent, but he's no Crosby. He get's in Crosby's face, then Crosby has enough of it and takes care of it. Can't be surprised when a team is getting smoked, that they will react aggressively. Flyers got what they wanted, so stop crying about Crosby reacting!!!

Giroux skating around and Beacking off at Crosby like he should be scared becuse Giroux is a bad man,Right.Crosby with two uppercuts sends Giroux to the ice so easy win for Crosby!Must of be a lot of blind hommers voting on this one as Giroux does nothing but eat a few punches!

Posted by Doogle on April 16, 2012 at 11:26 PM

The criers fans at it again. "Good thing the ref stepped in"? Do you really think Giroux would have done anything with Crosby? I don't think so. If Giroux was a tough guy why didn't he throw one punch before the refs stepped in??? He's a bum. @slarrivee11 "The NHL isn't going to let anyone kick his sorry ass"? Really? The NHL got together to protect Crosby? Is this your first time watching a hockey game? Your big tough Giroux didn't even throw a punch against little baby Crosby! HAHAHA Seems like Giroux is real tough. Win-Crosby

Crosby knew when to throw an uppercut and a good one at that. Gotta love that casual glove flick. Could be the highlite of this short series.

Posted by Mounty in NC on January 26, 2013 at 12:28 PM

You gotta love it anytime a Flyers gets his butt kicked by a Pens...the sad part is, it was Giroux who came over and started the fight with Crosby. You guys want to talk trash about Crosby but it was your thug who started the fight with Crosby

Posted by no123one on December 04, 2014 at 07:24 PM

Crosby was winning this when the linesman jumped in. Too bad, I like both players and would like to see them scrap. Given Crosby's strengh (knows as the best grinder in the league, yes you read that right, players almost to a man have admitted he is the hardest player to knock off the puck in the NHL), I suspect Crosby would have tossed Giroux to the ground anyway.

Posted by boldbilly on April 16, 2012 at 10:45 AM

Sidney with the win here....these two should not be fighting especially Sidney with his concussion history.

Posted by JaCort16 on April 16, 2012 at 09:22 PM

You people are morons if you do not see that actually when the refs jump in...Giroux throws an uppercut first and tries to land it and misses and then gets hit a few times.....soo people pay attention, the first punch thrown was by giroux when the refs jumped in and then he got what he deserved.

Posted by jnk07899 on April 16, 2012 at 09:35 AM

You can't be the guy to fight Sidney Crosby and expect to be liked. Crosby was the only one to throw and land. Win Sid.

Obvious win for Giroux, I don't think punches while Girouxs being held by the linesman should count for Crosby, nor were they even punches.

Whiny baby Crosby is about to be out of the playoffs - we'll all remember his poke-check of a loose glove as his highpoint of the series, demostrating his incredible hockey skills - BS.

This is exactly how people expect Crysby to fight, as soon as the linesman tie up the other guy he throws punches. Crysby definitely has done better, this was horrible.

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.

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.

Crosby landed at least one very nice uppercut. Giroux should stick to scoring goals. Philly has a tough team, I wonder why their fans are still such babies.

Crosby wussed out when challenged by Schenn later in the game too. What a little bitch.

Hardly call this a fight. If Crosby wants to do this, he needs to drop the glovesand helmet and just go.

Cindy loses!

Crosby's true colors showed in this game. The repeated tough guy act once the linesmen has the opponent tied up is embarrassing.

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.

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, if you're going to fight, actually fight, that was pitiful... Yet I'm actually surprised the refs sent Crosby to the box, the NHL loves to let their "star" players get away with anything...

Posted by jschroe14 on April 15, 2012 at 05:18 PM

What do you expect from Cindy....cheap shot. How can this be called a fight?

Posted by siouxfan1 on April 15, 2012 at 06:03 PM

It was a draw plain and simple! Crosby reminds me of Bobby Clarke won't fight unless linesman or a fighter around to save his a$$! Clarke was famous for that back in the day!!

Posted by Cooley945 on April 15, 2012 at 06:59 PM

im only picking giroux beacuse there is no button for refs. crosby decided to fight when the fight was broken up

Posted by daominator on April 16, 2012 at 09:44 AM

Refs ruined the fight. Might be fair to say no real shots landed.

Posted by laughriot on April 16, 2012 at 12:24 PM

Basically not a fight. The only punch came in typical Sid fashion when the ref had already intervened and Sid threw a dirty uppercut. At least he didn't go for the balls punch this time.

Penquins ARE the Canucks of the East. Everyone outside of Pitts HATES them with good reason. Hey Boys, Karma is a bite. Cooke plays while Savard sits is truly an injustice. What goes around comes around, Thank God. Get ready for B's in next round Flyers, because Pens are COOKED!
