How Do You Stop This?

Luck? Psychic abilities? Magic? Honestly, Sidney Crosby has scored some incredible goals in his career, but I don't think Carey Price should be subjected to his otherworldly hand-eye coordination. Some have said he's no longer the face of the league with the emergence of Connor McDavid and Auston Matthews, but every once in while in today's game Crosby reminds us all why he's still among the best in the world at what he does.

Let's go to today's example of why this is still true.
Like that's just not fair. Price tried to knock it out of the air using his stick, but Crosby got there first, bounced it off his stick and through the air across the crease to the glove side, and then whacked it home before Price could recover. Unless Price saw that coming using his unannounced psychic abilities, I'm not sure any NHL goalie would have been able to stop that.

Sometimes, you simple marvel at greatness. Sidney Crosby appears to be getting ready for the playoffs in his own special way, and that could mean trouble for a number of teams once more as they Penguins look for their third-straight Stanley Cup championship.

Until next time, don't keep your sticks on the ice?
