“People kept throwing hats,” Sidney Crosby said tonight. “I was just asking if he could make an announcement to ask them to stop. I mean, the first wave came and then I think they were all pretty much picked up, and then more started coming. So for us, we just wanted to make sure we kept kind of moving and kept the game going, wanted to try to get back in it. So wasn’t complaining about anything.”
Crosby has a reputation as being a tad bit of a whiner. He certainly lives up to it with that comment doesn’t he? It’s playoff game and a the most popular player on that team scores a hat trick and the other complains about the fans throwing hats???? Are you kidding me????? I am not sure whether or not I hope that Crosby did this on his own. For his sake, I really hope someone like the coach told him to go talk to the referees. For those on the team, the vets and coaches I hope Crosby acted alone. How totally bizarre. I really can’t believe they went to the referrees to bitch about fans throwing hats on the ice after a hat trick.
This series is living up to the billing. Crosby and Ovechkin went head to head tonight. Each scored 3 goals. The Caps are up by 2 games. Totally insurmountable? Absolutely not. Dynamite hockey? For sure. So While Howard Berger may not believe the hype. Those watching have gotten their money’s worth. Every penny.
