Sidney Crosby May Have Stumped The Entire Devils' Roster With An Absurd Assist, But The Joke Is On Him
Would you look at that. The best player in the world may have thought he was doing best player in the world things by trying to stunt on a team whose season has been over for weeks (ha, more like months), but - in reality - all he did was provide party tricks for Tank-A-Palooza. I might be embarrassed by the fact that all five Devils' were following an invisible puck if this game took place in November, but with New Jersey sinking like a stale turd I think I speak for most fans in attendance when I say that I was encouraging of that magic show. I'd like to thank Sidney Crosby for playing the puppet in the circus that has become the end of the Devils' season. He may have had the puck on a string, but it sure felt like he was suspended upright by them when he was the catalyst behind an entertaining 7-4 contest that simultaneously kept fans awake, gave them some reasons to cheer, and let them with very little worry that their team would undermine their draft position. So I would like to thank the Pittsburgh Penguins and their testicle tickling captain for dancing like monkeys in a Devils' loss that felt like a huge win. They may have helped their case for home ice in the playoffs, but they ever so slightly increased their opponent's chances of getting their sooner rather than later. Thanks for the snipe, suckers...
