CROSBY TIPPED AS MVP
Ted Williams — the greatest hitter who ever lived — used to say he could see the seams on the rotation of the baseball. Michael Jordan — the greatest basketball player of all time — used to say he was in a “zone.”
No one’s quite sure what Sidney Crosby is seeing or doing differently (Crosby isn’t too sure, either), but whatever it is, it’s working.
The 23-year-old superstar scored two more goals Wednesday night in a 5-2 win over the Toronto Maple Leafs as the crowd has already taken to chanting “MVP! MVP!”
It might be a tad early for that kind of talk, said Crosby, who now leads the league in goals (26), points (50) and bad mustaches (.5).
“It was a really nice, another example of the great fans we have here,” Crosby said of the ovation. “It was certainly appreciated. Hope there’s more of those.”
It would be hard to blame Crosby for shaving the ’stache at the rate he is going.
Crosby has now scored an unconscionable 11 goals over the past six games (a career-long streak) and 14 over the last 17. All that while extending his points streak to 17 games.
