It wasn’t an easy road back to the Stanley Cup Final for Sidney Crosby and the Pittsburgh Penguins, but the team and its captain got off to a very hot start on Monday’s Game 1 against the Sharks.
Crosby helped set up teammate Conor Sheary with an incredible assist during the first period of the series opener in Pittsburgh. Sid managed to shake a San Jose defender and deliver a fantastic no-look backhand pass to the stick of teammate Conor Sheary, who then sniped top shelf to give the Pens a 2-0 lead early in the game.
If the series’ opening period was any indication, the Sharks are going to have a heck of a hard time trying to contain 87 in the SCF. Hell, we may have a hard time containing ourselves just watching him.
