Yeah, one thing you hear about Crosby is "strong on the puck". Anyone can slip or catch a rut or just lose their balance, but their body language afterwards is a pretty good indication as to whether or not they just fell/slipped or if they were diving.
Wow! I can't believe Milbury said that. Good for him. Although, I think he likes to say things to get attention, so whether or not he actually believes that is a good question.
For all the people whining about the crosscheck on Crosby (not so much here, but on comments of articles and other message boards), that hit from Schenn was nothing. It was essentially a tap and Crosby flops to the ground like he was hit by a sniper. How many times have we seen him with the puck and defensemen are slamming into him, crosschecking him, basically using their whole body to try and knock him off the puck and Crosby stays on his feet. He gets tapped from behind without a puck and down he goes? Not buying it.
Sid looked like he was pushing for a penalty.
(Happy b-day, BTW)
