Last Season Ended Too Early For Sidney Crosby

from Seth Rorabaugh of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review,

Sidney Crosby had an unusual summer.

Last week, his hometown of Cole Harbour was impacted by Hurricane Dorian.

The volatile weather was little more than a nuisance for Crosby, who reported little damage to his inland home, but a sign welcoming visitors to the “home of Sidney Crosby” did get blown over.

The most aggravating part of Crosby’s summer was the length. For the first time in his career, Crosby was swept out of the playoffs in the first round.

After being overwhelmed by an underwhelming Islanders team in the first round before the calendar even turned over to May, Crosby and company had a surplus of nearly five months in down time. Considering this team has played well past Memorial Day in recent years, it was a strange feeling.

“We weren’t happy with the way things finished,” Crosby said.
