Sidney Crosby has been sidelined the entire season due to an offseason operation, as well as been on the NHL’s COVID-19 protocol. But last night, he made a long-awaited comeback for the Penguins against their bitter rivals, the Washington Capitals. But it did not turn out what he had hoped for.
Capitals were the better team from the first puck drop, and in the third period, the Caps found themselves winning 5-1. At that point, Crosby lost his temper and took out the frustration on opponent Martin Fehervary.
Crosby grabbed his opponent and threw him to the boards. Fehervary cradled his face in pain, and meanwhile, Crosby didn’t even get a minor penalty for it.
Sidney Crosby did not fire a single shot during the game, ending the game at minus one.
Hockey fans have shown their frustration about Crosby leaving the situation without some time in the penalty box, and some even think that he deserves a hearing.
“I’m not expecting a hearing, but I have to imagine you aren’t supposed to do that,” one user on Reddit says.
“Holding, Interference, Boarding. Take your pick”, says another one.
