Yet he comes back and wins the damn Smyth trophy, trooper. Don't even like him but he's one hell of a player. Disagree about the toss though. Pretty cheap but it's the playoffs. Could be wrong though. Just my opinion.

Before that a Caps O number 8 player push hit Crosby in the back of his head with a stick then whatever his name Niffassan hit him after when he fell down... I feel sometimes other players target Crosby a lot and it's very sad really unfortunate, I hope this doesn't not affect him when he is old because he doesn't deserves it at all...
Gavin MacDonald
I feel bad for Crosby

It's ovechkins fault if he didn't slash him it could've been avoided
It's hockey. Everybody is so soft these days when it comes to contact. All of you pens fans that are crying about the hit being so dirty, go watch baseball or soccer and stop trying to blow Crosbys meat shaft.
it's amazing the jealousy between players that causes these guys to do bad things. I played hockey and their is fierce competition and a desire to hurt people. really kind of sux actually

i want to see Crosby hurt
Y'all know my baby's head is sensitive.
Let us hope for the best. I wish him a speedy recovery.

I am not defending some of the violence in hockey, but there was an element of unluckiness in this play. Crosby was falling down when Nishanen hit him. If Crosby was not falling down, Nishanen's stick would have hit his chest. No one really knows if this was an accident or not, but it was not as obvious as some of the other dirty punk plays in the NHL.

I hate to say it, but I don't think this happens if Crosby isn't embellishing that stick tap from Ovi. No way Crosby falls downs like that. He's not made of paper. Then, he just so happens to get clocked because he's focused on drawing a penalty, and not on the player to his right at that point.

I'm almost surprised Ovechkin wasn't penalized first..

Sociopath gets it in da face....nice. Love this video.
what about the dude who ;literally slaps his back with the stick ????
bob marley
Man there's so many whiny bitches in comment sections that have anything to do with Crosby, yet he's the cry baby? Cause I forgot, you keyboard warriors play in the NHL and have been cross checked in the face at those speeds. Right...

Puhdas oli!

wish he would have killed that finger-severing piece of garbage
Bror Kvist
This happened because Niskanen has Finnish genes
Cosimo Koller
did Ovechkin whip Crosbey in the back with his stick before Crosby got checkd?
Leonard Szubinski
Crosby is a primadonna and now the officials are going have a chat about the call and changed it to a 5 minute major ? Would they have done the same thing if it was just a regular player? I'm sick of corruption and hypocrisy that now exists among NHL officials! Either treat all players the same, or get out of the NHL! This sucks! The same thing goes on in the NFL too! That other primadonna; Tom Brady gets special treatment that other players doesn't get by the officials! If the primadonnas feel that the heat is too hot in the kitchen, then please, retire!

love comments here when everyone thinks they know everything

There's a chance this was accidental. Oveys slash knocked Crosby down and straight into the crashing defender. But as a flyers fan glad to see that this didn't end Crosbys career, never want to see a player hurt.
акакий акакиевич
а сколько овечкина били???? да и сейчас бьют из под тишка и он не ноет! кросби лох, пускай в женском хоккее играет)))

Looks like an accident. Maybe Niskanen was going for a check but realized too late that Crosby had lost his footing.

Unfortunate situation, this game is played in such a fast pace and it's easy for us to sit here on our asses and judge from all kinds of angles with slow motion.

ovechkin kaatoi crosbyn polvilleen että niskanen tuli refleksillä poikittaisella mailalla päähän
perkele power!!
Ross Batchelor
"This is a scene that nobody in hockey wants to see." Ok, I call bullshit on that haha
Horse From Hell
how come crosby can come back from a conkie even if it was minor and other players are labelled red and not able to play again because of it?
คLקHค MคLє
Crosby on paska
matthew skillz
Screw Washington their desperate to win so they just injure Crosby
Tässä huomataan että suomalaisille ei vittuila
Lmao crosby diving as usual

If you flip the roles of Crosby and Niskanen, all of you Crosby haters would say that it's dirty. But since it's Crosby that took the cross check, he's somehow faking it
Pat Fallon
Its too much of a stretch that this was an accident. You know its crosby, you know a good shot to his head could help you win you the series, you know hes off balance and coming at you low. So you cross check him in the head? Please link me other videos where someone was cross checked in the head. This was no accident people are blind
