Crosby To The Rescue

from Cam Cole of the Vancouver Sun,

Thank you, Sidney Crosby.

Thank you for putting the exclamation point on Canada’s record 14 gold medals won here, unequalled by any nation, host or otherwise, in the history of the Winter Olympics.

Thank you for not taking a shift off, even when you were frustrated at every turn by an American body or stick in your way, all day long. Thank you for following that puck into the corner in overtime after you were sandwiched trying to split the U.S. defence, and thank you for heading for the hole when you left the puck with Jarome Iginla and two American defencemen stuck in the corner.

“He was yelling pretty hard for it, so I just laid it in there, hoping I wasn’t too late,” said Iginla, who was fighting off U.S. defenceman Ryan Suter and falling when he made the pass.
