As if the Penguins getting beat down 6-1 on home ice was not already enough, the star player is now the butt-end of a slew of jokes.
During Tuesday’s plane ride back to Boston, Bruins reporter Joey McDonald (@ESPNJoeyMac) tweeted, “Baby crying on flight. Pilot comes on and asks if it’s Sidney Crosby.”
Bruins fans continue to watch Crosby flop, cry and embellish any physical play against him, but now as this news story come out, it has given Crosby’s nickname “Sid the Kid” new light.
Crosby has been held scoreless in consecutive games this series for the first time all season, thanks in large part to the tremendous pressure and team defense the Bruins have played.
Game 3 takes place Wednesday night in Boston, with the Bruins leading the series 2-0.
