It’s hard to imagine the Penguins losing a playoff series to the No. 24 seed. It’s even harder to imagine that happening on Sidney Crosby’s birthday.
This is Crosby’s one chance to play an NHL game on his birthday. There’s no way he won’t make the most of it.
Happy 33rd birthday to the Penguins captain! May it be a winning one. (I’m not sure I see another option.)
My gift to Sid is Patric Hornqvist on his right wing today. It might not be the gift Crosby wants. But it’s the gift Crosby needs.
