I like Crosby, but the least he could have done is give McLean 2 seconds to get his mitts off. Can't give him the V for this one. Wonder if that cut on is nose came from the windshield. Kind of guessing so. Probably would have been a great fight if they were both ready and had a square-go.

Posted by Muscles on January 07, 2009 at 07:08 PM

Sissy fight by Crosby; stick to fighting girls if that's your style.

Posted by FlyersDosage on January 03, 2009 at 07:15 PM

There's no way I'm voting Cynthia Criesby the winner in this one...cheap shot, no class, and worthless diaper wearing punk....be a man & challenge him rather than jump a guy. He'll get his...Mike Richards would love to challenge he or Jennifer.

Posted by IMTank on January 05, 2009 at 01:35 PM

Nothing to see here.

Posted by Bruins29 on January 04, 2009 at 02:09 PM

First of all, Crosby jumped him with no warning. Second, he never threw a real punch. He is a true wuss. Draw.

Posted by dcamp522 on January 05, 2009 at 09:20 PM

Crosby is a little girl for doing this. But atleast he didnt punch him in the dick. That may be the funniest comment I've seen on here. Like a few of you stated, I hope he gets his azz kicked for that. Could only hope, a legit tough guy rips that visor off and goes to town.

Posted by CBJ_FAN on January 03, 2009 at 07:03 PM

I hope this doesn't become a trend. That boy needs to read the Code.

Posted by Pittsburgh Dan on January 04, 2009 at 08:32 PM

Huge Pens fan but Crosby needs to focus on his game and scoring not jumping a guy in the faceoff circle.

Posted by dala56 on January 03, 2009 at 07:11 PM

Nothing landed. Looked like Crosby jumped McLean. Draw.

Posted by 5minutescrap on January 04, 2009 at 05:56 PM

wow.. this happened to me at one of my beer league games. I got jumped of the faceoff by some little ****. i had no chance to defend myself. totally classless. I bet Crosby is pretty proud of himself. I liked his fight last year, but this was a gutless move. I hope the next time these teams meet, McLean steps up and teaches crosby a lesson. Bad form Crosby. shit fight too.. lol

Posted by DARCY T on March 24, 2009 at 03:26 PM

how could anybody vote for crosby???did he land anythin?

Posted by madlee on March 28, 2009 at 03:18 PM

somebody should do that to crosby. he is a bitch for doing that.

Posted by hammer472 on January 06, 2009 at 07:43 PM

Poor little sid the squid.biggest baby since boo-hoo Lemieux.is he on midol.next time fight someone who is ready.

Posted by cistaro on November 03, 2009 at 11:37 AM

Cheap fight. Only way crosby can win.

Posted by mike tyson on January 26, 2009 at 06:33 PM

Cindy is one gutless kunt. Cant wait till someone bitch slaps him then listen to all the Cindy lovers whine.

Posted by The Linkster on January 03, 2009 at 06:07 PM

Crosby's a punk...'nuff said.

Posted by youthattack on January 04, 2009 at 12:59 PM

a total bitch move by the biggest bitch in the nhl; sidney crosby.

Posted by djaye on January 03, 2009 at 05:10 PM

Sidney jumping someone like that. No class.

Posted by ETR on January 04, 2009 at 10:33 PM

Crosby is the biggest cheap shot in the league. He was the biggest pussy until Semin's girly slaps.......

Posted by Gunslinger on January 03, 2009 at 08:12 PM

So Sindy thinks he's tuff now. Jumps a guy, sweaters him and then is still to big a pussy to throw a real punch. How can you judge a fight when no real shots are thrown?

Posted by dbakes on January 05, 2009 at 11:13 PM

What do you call that? A sucker shake?

Posted by Gutz on January 03, 2009 at 11:20 PM

Nice one Sid the Kid - you PUNK! At least he punched McLean in the face and not in the gonads. He is really showing his lack of maturity - no wonder the coach called him out. Have some balls Sid and quit punching guys in the balls. He is the future of the NHL - shows that the league really is in trouble!!

Posted by Spanky_Jazz on January 03, 2009 at 07:24 PM

Wow. Jumping a guy that's never had a fight in his life off of the faceoff. Brett McLean is not a fighter and certainly wasn't expecting Crosby to drop his gloves and jump on him instead of jus taking the faceoff. Gutless move by Crosby.

Posted by Tony Esposito on January 03, 2009 at 09:26 PM

McLean had no idea it was coming. Total jump job by Crosby, why not fight him straight up?

Posted by narinsvy on January 06, 2009 at 09:08 PM

What in the hell was that??? That has to be one of the worst fights I've ever seen! Crosby is a little baby, who didn't want his baby face ruined. Mcean would've owned him if he even had the time to drop the mitts properly.

Posted by BEUK23 on January 04, 2009 at 03:56 AM

Pussy. Can't wait till someone cheapshots crosby.

Posted by tattooedkingpin on January 03, 2009 at 05:02 PM

Cindy is such a little punk. Is he suppossed to get the win for pulling on McLeans jersey constantly? NO. Draw.

Posted by ColdmaN5 on January 04, 2009 at 11:00 AM

Oh yeah, and to all that are defending Crosby and saying McLean agreed to go, apparently the refs didn't think so. I've never seen a player get an unsportsmanlike conduct and a misconduct on a fight between willing combatants.

Posted by JDForCommish on January 03, 2009 at 04:28 PM

What a panzy move by Crosby, this is why he is becoming the most hated star in the league. The poor kid mclean was completely jumped without a chance to fight back. If you are gonna jump a guy take off your visor CINDY! You did nothing to inspire your team other than show you are a girl. Can't wait for a middleweight to knock his lights out..........its coming.

Posted by Dampland on January 03, 2009 at 05:22 PM

I'm normally a Crosby fan, but this "fight" was nothing more than a bush-league mugging. Add this to the "ball busting" incident from last month, and I have lost a TON of respect for Sid the Kid

Posted by SirYohans on January 03, 2009 at 06:26 PM

Tugging away at some midget after jumping him is hardly impressive. Cindy had every advantage and had him in the most voulnerable position, yet he does nothing. DRAW. Way to go chump!

Posted by J C ALVARADO on January 04, 2009 at 03:41 PM

JAJAJAJAJAJA typical Crosby style. Thinks he can get away w/ anything he wants so he just jumps McLean. One day someone will spank that little spoiled girl and I will love it!

Posted by JABUSHFSU on January 03, 2009 at 06:43 PM

what a cheap jerk off. mclean had no idea it was coming. crosby didnt even throw one punch. what a geek.

Posted by tpr1960 on January 03, 2009 at 09:13 PM

What the f--- was that ? Pussy Crosby hits someone finally ,... and they weren't even ready . Bring back Derian Hatcher to get that pittsburg pussy .

Posted by 5forfighting44 on March 17, 2009 at 08:02 PM

Crosby wins easily, they obviously had words before the faceoff, so I doubt it was unwarranted.

Posted by MB3030 on January 04, 2009 at 04:55 PM

Very aggressive by Crosby , about time

Posted by Cherndig on January 11, 2009 at 09:34 PM

Next time Brett asks a guy to fight whether it's Crosby or not he should take him seriuos. I watch an Interview and Brett said he asked Crosby to go and Crosby said YES. He thought Crosby was joking. That's why Mclean went to the box and had that stupid look of his face. I though Crosby jump Mclean until I heard that. Good for you Crosby not many guys win the Hart Ross and drop the gloves.

Posted by northofthenorth on September 28, 2020 at 01:05 PM

No matter what people say, a fight is a fight and Crosby didn't let McLean land a punch and kept shaking him, he wanted to throw a few punches while McLean was on the ground until the ref stopped him, could of been bad. Domination by Syd.

Posted by UhateMOFOhateU on January 03, 2009 at 07:03 PM

What a pansy, Crosby is. He doesn't even give time for Mclean to set up. Shows that Crosby can't fight himself. Of course all the pens fans are saying that Crosby destroyed him. He's a whiner and does cheap stuff like this when he's not scoring goals. What a girl.

Posted by sporr on January 03, 2009 at 06:47 PM

Lost all respect for the little prick. I liked his game but he has no stones. If you're gonna pull that girl stuff you are gonna get picked on and Goddard isn't gonna protect you. Come on Cindy, if your gonna pick a fight man up and drop the gloves fairly or don't fight. Now you have a target on you.

Posted by oilersfansylvan on January 04, 2009 at 12:42 AM

He must of said something....Sid almost shook him to death...lol......Come on even when he does jump the guy and gets mean mad, all he gave the guy was a jersey burn......he'll pick the wrong guy, it always comes around

Posted by merle johnson on January 05, 2009 at 12:50 PM

Crosby you pu$$y !!! Go fight Semin !!

Posted by probie83 on January 03, 2009 at 05:08 PM

Crosbys a fag jump a tiny guy to make yourself look big while his shitty team goes right down th toilet.

Posted by pch49 on January 11, 2009 at 12:26 AM

Crosby jumped him, and needs to take off his visor. What a punk.

Posted by iceman88 on January 05, 2009 at 10:50 AM

I really cant stand Crosby one bit. This guy has no class whatsoever. He runs around yapping, whining, and crying all the time. Whenever he is about to get called out he skates away then the refs come in and he starts swinging or punching people in the dick. Someone is going to feed him a solid right to the jaw and i am going to spend the entire day watching his little eyes roll back in his head and collapsing to the ice like a penguin dropped from they sky.

Posted by MNBonecrusher on January 03, 2009 at 06:37 PM

What a coward! That has to be the most disgusting thing I have ..... Oh wait, I forgot about him being the third man in and going for the guy's hairy boys! Never mind, I guess this was not quite that bad, but pretty bad none the less.

Posted by creeperama on January 03, 2009 at 07:22 PM

That shows you what a little pu&&y Sid the Kid is. He didnt even do anything but yank on the guys jersey. If he wanted to fight so bad, why not take off your helmet with the visor? Real tough he is. Yeah anyone can jump a guy and get the advantage. What a chump. He sucks, I dont know what all the hype about him is. Yeah he scores some points, but his plus minus stinks for all those points scored. Anyone can cherry pick. He doesnt even have the balls to square off. I hope that guy kills him the next time they play. He is such a women.

Posted by JETTA KNIGHT on January 03, 2009 at 11:35 PM

what a douch. try it when the guy is ready. he had to pull the jersey too. at least Ovechkin would stand up to fight.

Posted by jlmcgui on January 07, 2009 at 09:51 PM

So, the NHL wonderboy can jump McLean w/o ramifications? It's great to see Sidney just drop'em end start throwing while McLean is trying to win a faceoff? Why doesn't he face BGL??? Sorry, can't wait to see Sid the Kid bite off more than he can chew one night. McLean actually has 1 LESS fight than Crosby ... Of course, I don't know what else happened during the game to precipitate this action

Posted by potem21585 on January 06, 2009 at 01:46 PM

Crosby is a bitch.

Posted by tkidu on January 03, 2009 at 07:56 PM

Yea..easy to win the fight when you pull the jersey over the guys head WHILE TRYING TO WIN THE FACEOFF? Wow. You're really tough for jumping a guy Crosby.

Posted by dc-caps on January 03, 2009 at 10:40 PM

Maybe Crosby should fight Semin!

Posted by BROWN - KOCUR on January 04, 2009 at 11:57 AM

Do they have a -1 rating for how good Cindy was ? PATHETIC. And the retarded homer Pens annoucers are lauding him fo rthis gutless attack . Grow a pair, take off the shield and challenge the guy instead of jumping him when he is face down taking a draw. Oh wait, you punch guys in the nuts from behind so this is actually step up. Why no Panthers took a third man in a cleaned his friggin clock needs to be explained as well.

Posted by PICKLEHAMMER on January 06, 2009 at 08:56 AM

Crosby is a spineless punk. To much of a coward to square off and drop the gloves.

Posted by BsFAn4LIF on January 04, 2009 at 04:21 PM

Crosby is the biggest chick ever, i cant believe he 1. didnt take the visor off, 2. didnt at least challange and drop them instead of basically jumping him, what a little sissy, and then he skates away like a pro

Posted by fatimatty on January 04, 2009 at 01:06 AM

crosby is a pussy. he's fought twice, both times he dropped the gloves before the other guy even knew there was a fight. since he's such a tough guy he should lose the visor.

Posted by Bruinsbear on March 10, 2009 at 06:44 PM

what the hell was that? sidney crosby just jumped mclean rite ofcrosby gave him no chance to fight. the faceoff for no apparent reason. no reason at all. mclean lost that fight because. typical by crosby no class, no honor just ruf him up. what a peice of crap fight

Posted by stan63 on January 03, 2009 at 07:54 PM

the kid mclean didnt even have a chance...crosby jumped him like a coward

Posted by dookie2365 on January 04, 2009 at 10:00 AM

the wasnt a fight that was crosby mugging a guy and running

Posted by blues10 on January 05, 2009 at 09:51 AM

Just goes to prove that Cindy Crosby is the biggest pussy in the league. He jumps a guy in the face off circle and the homer announcers are screaming how great crosby is. If he wanted to drop the gloves he should have stood up to McLean and squared off. The he could have done one of his famous dives. I hate that little bitch.

Posted by nervouselk on January 03, 2009 at 07:14 PM

Crosby being the lil pussy that he is when things are not going his way once again. Thats a real face for the NHL eh. Pittsburgh can have him.

Posted by gibbs61us on January 03, 2009 at 04:09 PM

P***Y move number two on the season for Crosby. First he punches some guy in the d**k in ATL then he jumps one of the smallest players on the Panthers. Then he takes himself out of pretty much the rest of the game that his team needed him in as they got spanked 6-1 by the panthers. Way to lead your team with a lack of discipline Sid.

Posted by GetUrWigSplit13 on January 03, 2009 at 05:27 PM

leave it to gutless sidney to pull somethin like this....what a b*tch!!!!...he coulda levled mclean, he had him in a bad spot both times and all he did was pull him and yank him around by his jersey..not one punch thrown....he pulls a cheap move and then cant even deliver..ha...typical crosb*tch...hes really gettin some balls these days wit these cheap shots(like the one on valabik punchin him in the crotch while 6 guys were on top of him)....i hope someone finally takes a good run at him!!!!..that game when colton orr did all game long and then gave godard a beaten when he tried to intervene was priceless and i loved every moment of it!!!!!!..by the way mel91192 im glad u won the lottery, u can keep sid and all his points!!!....we dont want puss on our teams...hockey is for men!!!!

Posted by Chak on January 03, 2009 at 04:29 PM

Just another reason to hate Crosby, that was a total pussy move and he deserved all 19 minutes. I'd love to see the little bitch try that on some one who is ready for it. Glad to see the over rated Penguins are free falling in the standings.

Posted by Hale Dunter on January 04, 2009 at 02:55 PM

Dear Cyndy, Dont try that [email protected] with the Capitals or Alex Semin will karate chop/slap your lame azz into submission. LMAO! Draw due to unfair tactics.

Posted by dman24 on January 06, 2009 at 01:11 PM

Crosby is a little girl. No reason for that

Posted by ghjkfdhgfd on January 04, 2009 at 12:15 AM

crosbaby!

Posted by burns08 on January 03, 2009 at 04:36 PM

Draw. Shaking an unsuspecting guy by the sweater is hardly a fight, let alone a win. Crosby looked like he really didn't know what he was supposed to do so he just kind of threw a temper tantrum like a little kid. And mel91192...I can't say that I hate Crosby and I would certainly love to have him on my team, but this "fight" was a bitch move on his part. Don't let your loyalty to your team cloud your judgement here.

Posted by ScottDaniels on January 03, 2009 at 06:52 PM

i hate sidney crosby. what he did here was try to fire up his team but he needs to realize he doesnt do his team any good when he is sitting for an entire period.

Posted by followthecode on January 03, 2009 at 10:30 PM

I think McLean called him Malkin's altar boy. Can't give a win for a gutless move like that. Draw.

Posted by DAVYDAWG1969 on January 04, 2009 at 10:28 AM

Hey upyours...why are you still whining about Lucic? Did you send him some naked pics of yourself? feeling alittle rejected like when you got turned down by the neighborhood pedophile? you're an idiot...plain and simple. Classless act by Cindy Crosby...Penguins suck!

Posted by hmpsn_j on January 04, 2009 at 04:19 PM

I wanna see crosby in a real fight, or someone pull on of these on him. what a joke of a fight

Posted by FlyerFan18C on January 04, 2009 at 08:32 AM

This fight lacked the hair pulling and face scratching of say a Comrie/Kovalchuk bout, but ranks right up there with it.

Posted by MorphinityNYR on January 03, 2009 at 04:18 PM

Umm, Crosby jumped McLean before he could even know what was going on. It was a total pansy move my Crosby and there's no way in hell he won.

Posted by Kevsloth on January 03, 2009 at 10:00 PM

Cindy Crosby shows once again why he'll never be a completely repsected player in this league. Yes he's talented offensively, but either skates away when things get physical after the whistle, or jumps a guy who's not ready to fight. He has no class when it comes to playing the game the right way. At least he didn't punch this guy in the sack like he did the last time he decided to let his emotions get the best of him. Maybe its his time of the month again. Stick to making passes and then skating off out of harms way while your teammates do all the dirty work. Most undeserving player in the league to wear the C.

Posted by irockthered on January 03, 2009 at 11:36 PM

Crosby just grabbed McLean's jersey and pulled it over his head. It reminds me of the kids who pull the dweeb's underwear up over his head and run away.

Posted by lucasmac17 on January 04, 2009 at 01:21 AM

Crosby needs to grow up a little and learn how to fight someone for real, jumping a guy off the faceoff and pulling his jersey right over his head isnt a win by any means

Posted by Flyers32 on January 04, 2009 at 03:07 PM

After seeing Crosby run his mouth then puss out against Richards in the playoffs last year, I didn't think I could have any less respect for the punk. Wrong! Despite the sneak attack, he didn't throw a real punch. Probably afraid Mclean would get free and give him a fair fight.

Posted by squirrelpirate on January 04, 2009 at 01:33 PM

If you listen to the sound byte linked on the main page, Crosby said he asked McLean to go, and that McLean said yes. "I guess he didn't take me serious." Either way, this wasn't worth the time.

Posted by Stundacunda on January 04, 2009 at 05:38 PM

crosby fights like coward

Posted by CatchNBlocker on January 05, 2009 at 12:15 PM

Crosby is a ***** bag . He jumps a guy and then still cant land anything. And the only reason Mcleans face was bloody is he hit the ice face first. Crosby cant fight period,and he knows it thats why he just shook McLean.Good job by the Queen of pittsburg.

Posted by gsw33me on January 06, 2009 at 01:24 PM

Crosby proved to be the little girl that he is and just dragged McLean around the ice. He is a winning little brat and I can't stand him; He is basically Sean Avery but with talent and the NHL and all the league refs cater to him. For all of his talent he does not need to play the chippy, diving, unsportsmanlike game that he plays on the side.

Posted by chelifisch on January 03, 2009 at 05:33 PM

Fight? What fight? All I saw was Crosby grab a jersey and try to shake the dust off of it.

Posted by philliefan1133 on January 22, 2009 at 01:04 AM

mclean had no idea it was coming and was going for the faceoff since it was in his zone...idk if he talked to him first. he was thinking about his team first and crosby made a bitch move so i call draw

Posted by ironfist18 on February 10, 2009 at 02:29 AM

hey crosby, instead of jumping unaware players, ummm why dont you just go suck that commentator's dick? cause that's pretty much all youre good for.

Posted by Wings_19 on March 20, 2009 at 11:24 PM

What the hell is this? Jumping a guy off the face off and then slamming him into the ice? What does this guy have to do to get suspended? But since its the leagues bitch its okay. I guess punching guys in the crotch is okay too

Posted by chrisuko on April 20, 2009 at 08:21 PM

Crosby is a cheapshotting pussy. Mclean didn't even drop the glovs. crosby took a mofo cheapshot on him. F crosby

Posted by Kenney21 on November 06, 2009 at 03:35 PM

Utterly gutless by Crosby. This wasn't even a fight. It was Crosby trying to take McLean's clothes off.

Posted by endlessriver on February 14, 2010 at 10:03 AM

Not sure how Crosby doesn't get suspended here. Can anyone tell me that if it had been a guy like Colten Orr that jumped another player off the faceoff and punched him repeatedly without him ever knowing there would be a fight that he wouldn't have been kicked out for a few games? Take note Penguins fans: this is why Crosby his hated. No one denies his talent, but he's not a player you can respect if you're anything other than a Pittsburgh "fan".

Posted by GagsFightsToo on November 05, 2010 at 09:50 PM

People call guys like Richards and Eric Stall dirty, this was the dirtiest attack I've ever seen by a hockey player. I award no win, and wonder why Crosby wasn't suspended.

Posted by Flyers20Fan on June 20, 2011 at 12:58 PM

typical cheap shit by crosby, absolutely no need for this, yeah his team was down and getting outplayed but that doesnt mean u should jump a guy off the draw, why could he hav just offered to fight and they could hav duked it out normally, this is why crosby is hated throughout the league, yeah hes the best player in the world but some of the stuff he does is just not necessary and bush league

Posted by Mgaz728 on November 26, 2011 at 12:23 PM

gotta give this one a draw. Sid didn't even give McLean a chance to defend himself

Posted by IwillBruinyou on February 25, 2014 at 05:24 PM

That wasn't a fight, it was some guy getting jumped at a faceoff circle. Next time he should throw a punch or at least let the other guy know he wants to fight.

Posted by baldy4420 on July 11, 2014 at 08:37 AM

You can't call that a fight mclean didn't have a chance to get a punch in crosby just cheapshotted him and he coould never throw a punch

Posted by Ripper20 on January 05, 2009 at 02:44 PM

What a chicken-sh*t? Gutless, pampered pussy. Flat out assault a guy with his head down, don't even have enough class to remove the lid. Looks like the damage to McClain was caused by the rag doll drop to the ice. No win for a classless punk. This sight isn't for saying the kid can play, which of course he can, it's for fighting. No class, no win.

Posted by kimocoyote on January 03, 2009 at 11:55 PM

What a "puss" and anyone that says enough is enough on fighting with a visor on well I won't comment. And the "homer" announcers about piww their panties because Sid is so "macho" What a joke. I saw Howe back in the day,1953, now there was a man and a hockey player. Sid couldn't carry his sweaty supporter.

Posted by Crowdpleezr on January 03, 2009 at 04:30 PM

Cindy Crosby with nothing but cheap shots. Was this really a fight? Draw burns08 is totally correct. Temper tantrum.

Posted by piter32 on January 04, 2009 at 07:38 AM

cheap shot by Crosby !!!

Posted by hockeyfan217 on March 03, 2010 at 04:11 AM

not even a fight, more like a cowardly mugging. Cindy jumped McLean, what a sissy bitch

Posted by acd1 on January 03, 2009 at 09:23 PM

HAHAHA Sweet shoulder punches!!! When Flyers Captain Mike Richards fights a bigger opponent, it fires up his team and the fans. When Penguins Captain Crosby jumps a little wuss, you can hear the laughter a mile away. At least he didn't go below the belt this time. WTF?

Posted by Pebster49 on January 05, 2009 at 08:12 AM

Crosby won, but he cheated. Very sissy move by Crosby. Draw overall

Posted by DRWfan on April 08, 2009 at 09:16 PM

Crosby you're a little pussy next time wait until the other guy is standing up straight then fight. Crosby probably did that because he knew he was going to get beaten.

Posted by cecil127 on April 06, 2009 at 05:09 PM

no way in hell that crap deserves a win for crosby. such a sissyman!

Posted by Gillies>Schultz on May 08, 2017 at 04:19 PM

Not even a fight - just bush league. Crosby didn't even give McLean half a chance - maybe afraid that McLean would have beaten him if he had. That was unfair - poor sportmandhip erring on the sissy and cowardly for 87.

Posted by njteech on January 04, 2009 at 08:23 AM

Guy in powder blue with visor seemed to jump the other player and tried to take is uni off....draw

Posted by cbeam87 on January 03, 2009 at 04:03 PM

File another one under the Legend of Cindy Crosby. Nothing like jumping a guy who doesnt know its coming. Then, yanking his jersey over as hard as he can to make sure McLean cant see. Then ofcourse, now is the time to start punching. If those could even be called punches. He is such a P***Y.

Posted by canucklehead16 on January 04, 2009 at 03:15 AM

This fight made my penis hurt. As a matter of fact, so did his last fight. Or cheapshot, I guess you'd call it. Regardless, Sid is the ultimate beeyatch. I vote for the victim in this case. Please Brett, go him again later in the season.

I'm not even sure if it counts as a fight if all you do is grab someone without warning and shake him like a garbage bag. Though, it's a bit of a stretch to say that McLean was the trash in this match-up.

Posted by mightykc1979 on January 04, 2009 at 05:53 PM

Wah crosby jumped a defenseless guy. Wah he wore a visor. Wah he is a woman. Welcome to the NHL. If you don't think that Mclean knew something was coming wake up. You are taught as a player to expect anything at all times. Mclean has had one or two fights in the league in his career. How many can you remember. All the Crosby haters need to let it go. If he played on your team there would be a million posts on his visor serving a purpose and the need for him to stand his ground. All the other centers mentioned are great players but don't point the finger without knowing what is going on. How much hockey do all of you watch?

Posted by blackgoldfan on January 04, 2009 at 05:00 PM

i'm wondering arn't you supposed to punch someone in order to win a fight? CLEAR CUT DRAW.

Posted by bruins rule on January 03, 2009 at 04:18 PM

not much of a fight.i wished they had squared off instead of crosby jumping him off the faceoff.

Posted by probiehawk24 on January 04, 2009 at 08:29 AM

Bob Errey is an a**hole. Worst announcer in hockey. He hit puberty during this fight

Posted by adivinity on April 07, 2009 at 02:56 AM

Draw. Even though crosby beat his ass, any one could have if they just pulled him down out of nowhere. I can't give crosby the win for that...

coward move by crosby,bushwacks a guy,imagine how long it would be allowed to go if crosby was the one being jumped.

Posted by smwarpig63 on January 04, 2009 at 11:23 PM

I can't give Crosby a win because he, like the bitch that he is, jumped mclean and I don't really see any legit punches

Cindy thought that he did it for the team, you know what, he didn´t. He should feel ashamed now for jumping into an unaware guy like that. Inspired by reading the great book of cowardess. Talking about the top nhl players, can anybody imagine Rick Nash, Jon Toews, Ryan Getzlaf, etc. commit such a sneak attack ??? This thing is a farce.

Posted by Helmut on January 03, 2009 at 11:11 PM

What a cheap sh#tbag Crosby is. If the situation was reversed and he got jumped I can't imagine the outcry. Go shave your p#ssy Crosby.

Crosby is a B I T C H!!!! and so is everyone who voted for him. If you going to fight, fight like a man you P U S S Y! This guy has skill and just embarrassed himself and hockey today with the jerk off move! How can anyone like this cry baby!

Posted by PYLrulz on January 04, 2009 at 12:42 AM

McLean win by Disqualification. If your going to fight someone Crosby, dont jump them. Stare them down, drop the gloves, and put up your dukes.

Posted by LBChockey on January 03, 2009 at 04:47 PM

Crosby has no pelotas... Drops the gloves (and not the visor of course) before McLean had a chance. Crosby: If you want to fight someone square up and duke it out at center ice. And don't fight midgets either...

crosby is a fucking pussy i hope someone grabs him and fucks his bitch ass up

Posted by bentrod on January 04, 2009 at 11:06 AM

Sid is such a joke. This is a little better than punching a guy in the five hole. I give the win to McLean for being the only one in the fight with some class.

Posted by T-Time on January 05, 2009 at 03:48 PM

Crosby did the only thing that he could have done in order to win a fight. It was LAME, it was a PUSS MOVE, and in my opinion he basically jumped the guy . He should get suspended for that kind of Attack. it was an attack and not a fight!!

Posted by Toyb on January 04, 2009 at 02:15 PM

Crosby is an utter bitch. I'm giving the win to McLean just to even out these votes for Crosby when this fight shouldn't even be voteable. It's not a fight, its an assault.

Posted by redwings4life on January 03, 2009 at 06:20 PM

way to go crosby this shows how big of a b*tch you are at least go toe to toe and not jump him and not let him drop the gloves while standing

Gasp, Bettman's savior Crosby in a fight?! What will all the WNBA fans Bettman is courting think of hockey now! What a crap fight, though. If you're gonna jump a guy at least throw a few punches versus spending the whole time trying to grab his jersey. Love how the announcer (and all announcers) was sucking Sid's d**k about how great a fight it was......pure crap. He fights like he kills penalties.

Posted by MattyD2008 on January 07, 2009 at 05:33 PM

They need to ease this douche out as the "face" of the league cause this is poor sportsmanship (to be kind), this isn't a fight but an attack, I don't care if you were 25' away and both guys were talking prior to the puck dropping...if you going to go, especially after a puck drop, then let the other dude drop his before you jump'em and slam his face into the ice. Could have been worse, Crosby could have skated in as a 3rd man to a fight from behind and pummeled away at McLean's testicles. Thankfully this did not occur, but apparently its a tendency for Crosby to get involved in male-on-male action and go straight for the love-stick. He's out of control.

Posted by xrichardsx18 on January 04, 2009 at 09:39 PM

So is your team of the Nottawa Seniorita's....woof woof 2007, Turmoil in Pittsburgh, now even Crosby is losing his marbles. Godard has to dress more games, and call up Aaron Boogard, the pens are getting pushed around. I like the penguins, but this is classless what Sid did! He resorted down to a Spezza or " Scuicide chauffer" Heatley tactic. How bout that nice thumping of the Seniorita's by the Leafs Saturday night!! Nice!

Posted by forsberg21 on January 05, 2009 at 04:50 PM

Jumping someone with a visor on. When i heard that Sid has dropped them again, i had hoped it would be more like the first one. Not even close, shameful showing by Crosby.

Posted by bradass81 on January 03, 2009 at 11:55 PM

Its tough giving Crosby the win considering he basically mugged him.

Posted by 00charger on January 05, 2009 at 06:23 PM

Crosby got twenty minutes for this??? He asked McLean to go. Mclean probably thought he was kidding and when he found out Sid wasn't he threw off his gloves and turtled. Should've been 5 minutes for Sid and done... why the heck did they give him 5+ 2+2+10 for that?????

Posted by Herb Romaine on January 03, 2009 at 09:36 PM

If I have to pick a winner, I'll pick the Kid, but jumping someone who's not ready and then getting a plus on your fight card just doesn't seem right.

Posted by icebreaker2 on January 04, 2009 at 10:00 PM

I understand why Crosby did what he did and in fact support the move. I heard the interview where he said that McLean agreed to go but I guess the 2 of them are the only ones that know what was really said. The thing I don't like is the punching-bag Nick Boynton chirping about "un-professional" it was. That carries a lot of weight coming from that donkey. As Don Cherry said Saturday night Crosby shouldn't be dropping the gloves but if nobody else will I think he felt he needed to make a stand. That being said I'm hoping someone else steps it up 'cause Sid may be a lot of things but a fighter he is not.

Posted by DreDay9 on January 05, 2009 at 09:31 PM

fight like a man crosby, jumpin guys and cupshots dont make u a man

Posted by lhayes1390 on January 30, 2009 at 09:09 PM

Look, I understand people thinking Crosby should not have done this. However, McLean knew the fight was coming. Crosby, in the previous faceoff, and in this one was trying to get McLean to fight him. McLean wouldn't, so if anyone here is a girl, it is McLean. Sure Sid should not have jumped it, but it McLean was a little girl for utterly refusing to fight. How can you give the fight a draw? Or to McLean? He didn't land a hit, and I think you need to to win a fight.

Posted by EastKing on October 23, 2010 at 07:40 PM

Cindy Crosby is a gigantic pussy. Lose the visor, square up, and man up in general.

Posted by aces50 on January 05, 2009 at 01:01 PM

I was at the game and wassurprised no believes McLean knew it was coming. I was sitting about 25 feet from them and they were talking before the puck was dropped. He knew it was coming, but not that quick. Oh well I guess the best player, top vote getter in the NHL must be held to a higher standard than everyone else. At least he showed some emotion. Goddard is back in the line up tonight so the cheapshotting will stop. Got to love you Syd haters, everyone of you guys would love to have him on your team.

Posted by Bobsluggo on January 04, 2009 at 12:46 PM

Crosby was fed up with the slashes, lack of calls, just went off and it was good...I still laugh at all the morons who comment about him hitting Valibak in"the boys" Atlanta douche bag was third man in when orpik was hitting the guy who took his knees out, yet all the crosby haters complain he was 3rd man in and act like he even came close to hitting the guys nuts, be real you losers!

Posted by ETHREE on January 06, 2009 at 07:10 PM

This is low, LOW from Crosby. I respect his talent but this is just totally un called for. Mclean is not the type of player that Crosby should have proved himself against. This was a complete and utter failure by Crosby to prove a point. He can't fight. Next time pick someone willing and EXPECTING. Crosby = a totally over rated player all around. (You can't build a team around ONE.) If this was Avery or a heavy-weight that jumped someone like this it would have been a minimum 5 game suspension.

Beyotch move by Syndy. I can't wait to see what Grapes has to say about this one. Maybe Syndy can get a penalty for shaken baby syndrome, because I didn't see much in the way of actual punches.

Posted by kranked003 on January 05, 2009 at 02:46 PM

A fights a fight and there is no fair fight. Crosby shows he can be the aggressor if needed. Although he never lands a blow to the front of McLeans face, he clearly wins the fight.

Posted by towner35 on January 06, 2009 at 09:43 AM

One sided...Crosby attacks McLean. Not even sure McLean got a punch in. Crosby shirts him and starts in with uppercuts.

Posted by BryanM on January 19, 2009 at 12:55 AM

Yes Crosby jumped him, but McLean did get back to his feet. CROSBY.

Posted by BooSanta on January 04, 2009 at 09:17 PM

Gee, do you think he's frustrated. Good to see Crosby with a pulse. People can get under his skin. Look like he was double jersey jabbing Mclean. I would have like to see them drop the gloves and prepare first.

Posted by KevMack on January 04, 2009 at 10:48 AM

Clearly a bunch of people who didn't watch the game are using this opportunity to vent their jealousy of not being Crosby. The crap that this kid puts up with all year, I'm surprised he doesn't do this more...and rest assured, he would beat the PISS out of anyone posting here! Rag doll + bloody nose = landed punches and a win for the kid. If anyone has an issue, I'm sure Goddard will have a chat with them, cuz that's his job. You jokes will probably say that he'll hide behind Goddard...well why not? You'd all probably toss your mother in front of you to duck a punch.....

Posted by upyours on January 03, 2009 at 07:48 PM

Sid was trying to warm up for Lucic. He figures Looch will jump him eventually since the beantown babe won't fight real fighters. Crosby is frustrated...still he shouldn't have taken it out on McLean that way. He shouldn't be fighting period...but if you do...pull the headgear off...drop the gloves and man up. Still...no worse than a 230lb Lucic jumping a smaller guy with 2 PIMs on the year, at the end of a 3 goal win.

Posted by staceyb on January 03, 2009 at 10:41 PM

Crosby's Penguins got run off the ice today by the Panthers. He was trying to rally the troops but jumping McLean like that was totally bush league, something you'd expect from the Slap Shot circuit. At this rate it won't be long until there is a coaching change in Pittsburgh. Therrien is not getting much out of this group.

Posted by digitalroc on January 04, 2009 at 09:00 PM

not much of a fight. crosby looked like he was shaking out a door mat. would like to see sid take the visor off, and square off.

Posted by RebelliousArmy on January 05, 2009 at 11:23 AM

Im a huge pens fan and i agree that sid should have let the guy try to protect himself instead of "jumping him". Who cares about visors anymore b/c it seems more and more fights involve players with visors the fighters will just have to more accurate punches so they dont injure theirselves.

Crosby did not jump McLean. If you saw the interview Crosby asked him to go before the puck dropped and McLean said OK then bitched out.

Posted by justinb on January 03, 2009 at 08:49 PM

For the record, Crosby asked McLean to go and McLean said Yes, but didn't take Sid seriously until he was being tossed around like a rag doll. That being said, Crosby dominated but this was a horrible hockey fight. It looked more like WWE Divas on ice than a fist fight.

Posted by blazers76 on January 03, 2009 at 04:52 PM

Crosby jumps McLean and whoops him. Kinda gutless. I guess he gets the win.

Posted by HerbRaglan on January 03, 2009 at 08:09 PM

I am glad there was a fight, but that wasn't right. I was hoping Winchester would take shot at Crosby after the fight ended. He just jumped the other guy, who did not look like a good fighter to begin with!

Posted by penguinsrcool9 on November 04, 2010 at 02:31 AM

Does look a little sketchy at the faceoff but my guess is they probably chatted before in the game. I don't get how people bash Crosby for fighting (and winning), and then call him a crybaby. Isn't that a contradiction right there?

Posted by swjankovic on January 04, 2009 at 09:25 AM

Listen to the interview with Crosby after the game. He asked McLean to go. McLean accepted then chickened out. Afraid of Cindy? Looks like McLean is a bigger pussy.

Posted by Joe Mack on January 04, 2009 at 08:22 PM

I didn't see the game and this clip doesn't show if there was any talk before the faceoff. Perhaps Crosby was quicker to get the gloves off or maybe he just jumped him. Either way, I see all the people who call him a crybaby that isn't physical enough also like to complain when he drops the gloves and tries to get his team going. I also see that this "pussy" has yet to lose a fight.

Posted by mk87 on January 04, 2009 at 12:16 PM

earlier mclean slufooted crosby and crosby couldnt take it anymore, good for him, hes been putting up with shit his whole career, crosby said that he asked mclean to fight and mclean said ok, mclean was the pussy here, not crosby

Posted by neiljc on January 03, 2009 at 09:12 PM

Sid the Kid picked poor Breet McLean to take his frustration out on. Good shots and a win for Crosby. Also Crosby haters, how many captains not named Iginla, Rivet, or Lecavalier drop the gloves to step up for their team...not many. Plus, it is risky with skilled players.

Posted by no123one on January 04, 2009 at 02:58 AM

Posted by fetfish13 on January 03, 2009 at 07:36 PM

I'm tired of people saying he blindsided him. Crosby said that he asked the guy if he wanted to drop gloves before the faceoff and McLean said he would. Watch the game and you will see that happen before the faceoff. I can't help that McLean forgot that he just agreed to fight!

Posted by woahhhjenna on January 17, 2009 at 01:01 PM

Crosby and McLean were talking back and forth before the fight. Crosby asked him if he wanted to go and he said yes. McLean didn't think he meant then and there. But Crosby DID NOT, under any circumstances, "jump him". It was an agreed upon fight.

Don't care what anyone says, McLean knew it was coming, he just tried to win the faceoff first. Crosby, didn't care.

Posted by joeh2007 on January 03, 2009 at 05:35 PM

First off i don't see how one person can "jump" somebody, that usually takes a group of people to do. Second, Crosby and McLean talked about going off the face off as soon as they got on the ice. I guess McLean just didn't take him serious, just like Crosby said. That was his mistake, maybe next time he'll learn to back himself up. And about McLean being a small guy, Sid isn't very big himself at 5'11 200lbs. McLean is 5'11 185, so Crosby has 15 pounds on him, not a big deal. Crosby wins all day

Love it! Sure it was cheap jumping the guy of the faceoff and not losing the visor and all of that, but to see Sid put a beatdown on a guy who skates away bleeding and smiling is priceless!

Posted by millwright1966 on January 03, 2009 at 09:20 PM

OMG!!!!!!!!! Sid the kid...who would have thunk it...he looked real good there...McLean I think was in shock about this...

Posted by Stac797 on January 03, 2009 at 04:43 PM

McLean can't fight for crap

Posted by amb202 on December 13, 2010 at 06:22 PM

Sidney Crosby cleaned him up.

Posted by wmellott on February 24, 2009 at 11:44 AM

Who in the hell voted for McLean? Probably Crosby haters! He doesn't fight much because he doesn't have to show anybody anything. But if you give him cheap shots during past and present games he will lay you out! Things add up to attacks like that people. Actually watch the games and not just these clips. McLean is a pussy and he thought he could shit talk and Sidney wouldn't do anything. Guess what? He is a beast and he wll own anyone comp in size!

Posted by Mel91192 on January 03, 2009 at 04:27 PM

The people who come on this page dissing on Sid have some problems! Don't be a B***h because the Burgh won the lottery and got Sid! You all can take the most skilled person on your team and compare them to Sid and they do not have half the talent Sid has in his thumb! So F**k you all who have somthing bad to say! We may be struggling now, but don't count us out just yet we are amazing when people expect us to fail. You counted us out last year with Sid and the other boys out with injerys and we just b***h slaped you all for doubting us. We will get out of this slup soon you can count on it!

crosby didnt jump him, he asked mclean to fight before the puck was dropped and mclean agreed

Posted by HockeyBacon on January 03, 2009 at 10:33 PM

What a fight! Lol a non hugfest by Crosby of all people!

Posted by pensfan666 on October 31, 2009 at 03:02 PM

hey crosby square off and take the bucket off!!!

Posted by dogace on January 03, 2009 at 04:31 PM

come on,sid is not suppost to fight.this is a fighting site which is for people who like to watch fights.how can u not like a superstar doing that,i love what he did..cause the pens stink right now.i give him props!

Posted by J.R. Abel on January 06, 2009 at 09:05 PM

As a Penguins fan and a fight fan this one was tough to watch. Glad Crosby is willing to drop his gloves but not in that scenario. I guess he is getting as frustrated playing as fans are watching him.

Posted by azjim on January 04, 2009 at 06:08 AM

"how many captains not named Iginla, Rivet, or Lecavalier drop the gloves to step up for their team" Let's see. Toews, Chara, Thornton, Richards, Moreau, Brown, Doan, Clark and Morrow just off the top of my head.

Posted by Sweeney2112 on January 03, 2009 at 11:45 PM

nothing like jumping a guy when he's not expecting it..cindy is a wuss no matter how you view it....

Posted by Andyman on January 07, 2009 at 06:22 PM

Crosby is a pansy. Pulls the jersey up over McLean's head and then pushes him to the ice so Brett cant mess up his pretty face. Maybe he could have gotten another Penguin to hold McLean down so he could feel Brett's nuts like he did in Atlanta to Boris Valabik

Posted by Baseball714 on January 04, 2009 at 08:33 AM

Maybe next time crosby wants to fight he should let the other guy know first. Just score and do what you do best.

Posted by mijlandrew on January 03, 2009 at 09:25 PM

Crosby definitley jumped McLean. then pulls him down b4 mclean can do something about it. whatta baby.

Posted by tim daddy on January 06, 2009 at 10:09 AM

not really a fight, more like double minors for roughing

Posted by snowboardinmatt on January 03, 2009 at 11:54 PM

How do you follow up punching someone in the dick? How about jumping a small guy while keeping your visor on. Crosby also jumped Ference in his only other fight, I want Crosby to actually get into a fight where the other guy has his gloves off and we'll see how quickly he gets his teeth knocked in then. I hate Crosby but I respect what he's done for the sport, but to be honest I can't deal with his diving, bitching, moaning and now jumping people anymore.

Posted by jcstokes on January 03, 2009 at 04:39 PM

No fight here. Looks like the Pitt folks are getting a bit upset with their slump. They should be happy they have a team and are very lucky Lemieux is in bed with Bettman. Looks at all those first rounders. Crosby's no Gretzky nor is he Ovechkin. Just a whinny spoiled boy.

Posted by claire alexande on January 03, 2009 at 05:05 PM

sid acts just like burrows in this "fight." draw, although on principle mclean should get the W since Crosby totally jumped him with no warning. No-one cares if you embarrass Pittsburgh, but think about your country, man!

Posted by GShakh on January 04, 2009 at 03:57 AM

Sid is a sucker. there was not fight. he did'not give a chance to McLean to fght because hi was scared to fight. i wanna see Ovechkin against is )))

Posted by wannago_letsgo on January 03, 2009 at 05:50 PM

garbage, Sid jumped the guy, Mclean had no idea what was going on, total garbage move from a whiney puss puss hockey player, keep to the goal scoring and play making, finesse players finesse fighters fight, the Crosby's of the game are not supposed to drop their gloves, shake a guy around and look like their not too sure what their supposed to do after that. Garbage

Posted by Oil Can Henry on January 03, 2009 at 11:38 PM

No contest - draw. Nothing happened ( even with the sneak-attack ). Not nice, Sid.

Posted by dlbishop2213 on January 03, 2009 at 08:46 PM

Lost even more respect for Crosby... hated him to begin with, McLean wasnt even aware of it, gutless, cowardly, chicken shit, and everything else you can say negatively towards Crosby... i hope someone of the caliber of Orr, Parros, Boogie takes the instigator to teach this kid some manners... Im calling it a draw because of this.

Posted by rdemps01 on January 07, 2009 at 02:32 PM

Crosby, next time you want to fight some one.. tap them first drop the gloves and look them in the eye.. it might be the last thing you see. I hope you get your ass kicked for pulling this kind of shit.

Posted by drahcir61 on January 04, 2009 at 10:40 AM

That was lame by Crosby ... at least give the guy a chance to square off. I can understand the Pens are frustrated but there'll be payback for that kinda stuff.

Posted by silvertipsfan on January 03, 2009 at 09:21 PM

Draw, no doubt, cheap and classless, linesman should have ended it as soon as the jersey came over mcleans head. Crosby should stick to goals and assists.

Posted by gotsparkly on January 04, 2009 at 08:01 AM

Crosby does it again. :P Punches Valabik in the yarbles while he's pinned, and then jumps a smaller guy off the faceoff. Stay classy, Crosby. I gave this one a draw - that's not a win. I think i see what he's trying to do - with the Penguins floundering, he's trying to take the team on his back the way Alex Ovechkin does with the Capitals. Unfortunately, he's doing it all wrong and he's becoming a cheapshot artist.

Posted by alehousem on March 24, 2009 at 09:41 PM

lets see crosby step back and square up and then see how well he does. draw.

Posted by Caniac06 on August 03, 2010 at 01:22 AM

McLean got jumped with his head down, and Crosby didn't land anything substantial, just spun him around. Draw.

Posted by mokan33 on January 03, 2009 at 06:13 PM

P*$$y and whiner Syd is showing that he is the "Kid" and acting like one. I thought that Crosby is supposed to be the face of the new NHL ....a superstar and role model for kids to look up to, and all that crap. I guess this and the ball busting move against Valabik kinda screws that all up, huh Cros?

Posted by gaoski on January 04, 2009 at 09:57 AM

You people know sh!!. Did you hear the sound bite? McLean's the pussy here. He says he didn't hear it. Give me a break. Everyone wants to bash Crosby calling him a cry baby. I like to see any of you be put in a position to save the NHL, yes save the NHL, and do it at the age of 18 (now 21). And to question his talent, it just shows you how little you know about hockey and how idiiotic you sound to show such little objectivity about a player.

Posted by philabronc on January 04, 2009 at 02:29 PM

This wasn't a fight, more like a unprovoked mugging. Shame on you, Crosby! Draw

Posted by bobowen34 on January 05, 2009 at 09:42 AM

What a punk. Crosby jumped the guy. Yes Crosby won - but jumping a guy and winning is not a true hockey fight win in my books. What a little punk.

Posted by eadamson on January 04, 2009 at 02:41 AM

This isn't so much a fight as a mugging. Give credit to Crosby for mugging McLean well, but I don't think you can call this a "Win".

Posted by bloodchurn on January 04, 2009 at 02:27 AM

Crosby completely jumped him so I cant give him a win for that crap. Draw.

Posted by Flyers967 on January 03, 2009 at 06:13 PM

Crosby is a little B*tch. bruiseyoureye, your a freaking idiot. total domination????? he pulled his jersey over his head and did nothing. he may have embarassed McLean among the penguins fans, but Crosby just embarassed himself in front of NHL fans and NHL players. whats worse than your idiotic analysis was the announcers reaction. good fight???? LOL I cant wait till these two team play again so McLean can get his revenge.

Posted by Weld One on January 03, 2009 at 11:00 PM

Sid the Kid the punk, has to jump McLean while his head was down for the faceoff, I guess you have to give a gutless win to Sid. He's gonna get his soon and there won't be anyone there to protect the spineless coward!

Posted by gouly on January 04, 2009 at 03:14 PM

well he throws a better punch then Semin but, I gotta say he behaved like a bitch. If your gonna fight... at least square up...and I don't care if McLean said yes to your "you wanna go?" at least let him drop his gloves ...gutless Crosby... it looked scared by initiating like that.

Posted by chad420 on January 04, 2009 at 06:00 PM

crosby is a spoiled little bitch....crosby japped(circa warriors)ferrence for a lucky win..would love 2 see a rematch

Posted by Blackhawk16 on January 05, 2009 at 06:03 PM

What was that?? Did McLean steal Sids lunch money or something?

Posted by sjovocop55 on January 04, 2009 at 03:49 AM

I am a Crosby Fan but he needs to stay away from this stuff.

Posted by Bosoxfan3 on January 04, 2009 at 03:00 AM

That just might be the worst fight I've ever seen.

Posted by tomales2 on January 04, 2009 at 02:55 AM

"Oh my, what a fight by Crosby." Lol, give me a break. The Cros was hoping to keep the sweater up a bit longer so he could use his favorite punch-to the groin .

Posted by ramses22 on January 03, 2009 at 10:54 PM

I don't know if you can call this a fight since Mclean didn't look like he dropped his gloves.

Posted by gmr133 on January 03, 2009 at 09:26 PM

Good for Sid. Too many people constantly calling this kid a p****. He finally gets pissed off that the Pens are playing like crap in this game and in general, and takes it out on somebody. Good for him and the pens. Wow--what a bunch of morons post on this fight. Some of you morons would rather see that crap with two guys warming up to hug and dance at center ice rather than see two guys just get pissed off and slam each other around. That's why fighting today sucks. Too many huggers like Peters and Stortini, too many dopes fighting after a clean check. Fight when you get pissed off. The pens were already out of this game so Crosby doesn't cost his team anything. Crosby didn't jump anybody--you can see them talking about dropping them before the faceoff. You may not like Crosby, but don't show your ignorance by saying he sucks--he's a points guy who got fed up and took a shot. I'm not even a pens fan. What Crosby did was fine.

Posted by brandonh19 on January 04, 2009 at 09:54 PM

the interview he gave said he asked him to go but i dno, just one thing i dont understand is people bash him for not fighting and then when he does go he people bash him for that, i mean i understand this isnt very classful but at least he went, and he did say he asked Mclean to go so...

Posted by boogeyfan24 on January 04, 2009 at 09:26 PM

Sid the Kid wins, but that wasn't cool of him. At least alert the other guy that fists might be coming his way.

Posted by Dustup on January 03, 2009 at 05:28 PM

Crosby will be a marked man the rest of the season

Posted by Nelstorm on November 09, 2010 at 06:21 PM

Not a great fight, but Sid definitely won it. If some guy jumps you, keep your gloves on, second you whip them off you're validating the cheap shot. Crosby - cheap shot, but a win.

Posted by radioactiverich on January 05, 2009 at 09:55 AM

Looks like a vintage footage fight of Ulf Samulsen or Claude Lemeux. Any one else in the league would be up for a suspension for that crap.

Posted by rwolfe09 on January 04, 2009 at 12:15 AM

I would give Crosby the slight victory. He seemed very pissy the entire game. He reminds me of a little girl but he won this fight. He continues his undefeated streak, 2-0, in fights.

Posted by Polonich on January 03, 2009 at 09:48 PM

A win for Sid. It looked like Sid was just totally frustrated and took it out on McClean, something had to have been said or done on his part for that to occur. Who cares if he jumped him, anybody that watches the Pens on a regular basis can see how many cheap shots he takes in any game.

Posted by mcrall on December 24, 2009 at 01:51 PM

Crosby got a suprised jump leading him to a win. Otherwise his ass would have been kicked I am sure of it.

Posted by Mike Tython on January 03, 2009 at 05:31 PM

You people act like this is the first instigator in NHL history.

Posted by PittPens1787 on January 16, 2009 at 02:52 PM

Here's the story on this fight: Sid asked McLean to fight before the draw, McLean said yes. Apparently, he took it as a joke. Sid didnt jump him, he thought McLean was going to fight. And as far as the "visor and powder blue uniform comment": Obviously you don't know your hockey because starting a few years ago every player that enter the league is required to wear a visor. And do you really think he designed the Pens' unis? I love how every non-Pens fan in the world can hate Sid for no reason, but you would love to have him on your team. I guess the best player in the world has to be able to take unwarranted criticism.

Posted by bart1115 on January 08, 2009 at 04:55 AM

Anyone callin crosby anything is bull. he challenged mclean. mclean heard what he said and all that can be provin is he gave a smirk, usually see it before ppl fight, just like the fight 2 mins before this one wit max and campbell. u can see it in the replay. After he tried to backdown and crosby wouldnt let him he's sayin in a post game interview that he didnt hear him.

Posted by jjjakes on January 04, 2009 at 01:55 AM

that was not worthy of being called a fight. I call it a draw and think the league should make Sid wear skirt for the next 3 games. Sid jumped the guy, left the visored bucket on, and never threw a punch.

Posted by mikebflorida on January 03, 2009 at 05:35 PM

2 horrible "fighters", 1 horrible fight. Cindy fights like the girl he is- I'm surprised he didn't go for eyes with his fingernails.

Posted by BattleAxe13 on January 03, 2009 at 07:53 PM

Uh Crosby haters remember, Sidney Crosby is what you call a talented player, not a talented fighter. He's 21, still the youngest scoring champion in major sports history, he got frusterated and he took it out on someone. I'm sure it was provoked somehow (I didn't see if that was the case) What did you really expect? Honestly he shouldn't be fighting at all but dingbat Therrien scratches Godard and Shero sent Biznasty down so there is no protection for him. It looked like Sid did jump the guy but he still gets the win.
