And He Didn't Win The Truck For This?

You might not have been terribly impressed with the performance of a certain super Sophomore in Wednesday night's All-Star Game, but some people were. Russian points us to this item from via Yahoo!:
The sad news for the folks on hand is that Sidney Crosby didn't score. "What a disappointment," he said after the game. But the good news is that Crosby went up against Mr. Face-Off himself, Yanic Perreault, a man twice his age and, allegedly, much savvier. Crosby beat him not once but twice on the draw. Now that is the kind of thing I like to see at an All-Star Game.
Kostya Kennedy is officially funny. I think.

Making trap minded people proud in All-Star game?
Geez... Let the kids score for God's sake...

"It was up to Rolston and Bill Guerin to shut down Crosby and Alex Ovechkin. They did a pretty good job. Crosby was held off the scoresheet and Ovechkin got only one goal. Rolston wasn't on the ice for any goals against, doing his Minnesota Wild coach, trap-minded Jacques Lemaire, proud.

"They wanted us to keep a couple of guys back since we were playing against Crosby and Ovechkin," Rolston said. "Me and Billy were like, `Let's get in on the forecheck,' that way we're not going to have to go back in our end."

That's hella lame. Nice find, though.
