from Pierre LeBrun of ESPN,
It hurt so much that Sidney Crosby couldn’t bear to watch the Stanley Cup finals until the very last game.
The four-game sweep at the hands of the Boston Bruins ranks right up there among the lowest points in Crosby’s career.
"It stung,” the Pittsburgh Penguins captain told ESPN.com Thursday in an interview during the NHL’s Player Tour event.
"It was one of those ones that definitely took a while to wear off. Looking back, probably right until Chicago won, it was pretty tough to go a day without it crossing your mind when you’re seeing the finals going on. I didn’t watch a game until Game 6. I tried not to think about it too much, but it did pass through my mind. I think until I started working out and started to get ready for this year, it was tough to turn the page there."
