Typical Crosby praise interview but he singles out Zberg (and Forseberg) as his most intense competition as a pro.
“It’s pretty feisty [playing against them],” he said. “At times, pretty intense. Those guys are guys you really go head-to-head against [as a center], taking faceoffs. “You see them all game, all over the ice. It’s not like a defenseman you might have a couple of rushes against, or maybe you’re in the corner with him the odd time. You play the same position, and you’re going up against him every shift.” Predictably, Crosby appreciates the way guys like Zetterberg go all-in every time they hop over the boards.
