From SI.com’s Kostya Kennedy:
Have you caught the latest installment of the Sidney Crosby Show? The run of multipoint nights, the lifting of the injury-wracked Penguins, the on-ice act that also features the artistic stylings of sidekick Evgeni Malkin and his stick of fire? You don’t know what treats Sid the Kid will provide these days. Last week, he scored an empty net goal from his belly.
For all of Crosby’s statistical bounce—13 points in six games, 22 in his last 13—he is hardly to be evaluated by points alone. He may have risen to second in the NHL in scoring, but he is also second, to Magnificent Malkin, on his own team. What we are seeing now, as Crosby delights his homies in Pittsburgh, stuns the crowd in Hockeytown, incites the masses in New York City, is the Kid at 21. The man-boy is now officially a man, all grown up, not just by the measure of the nation’s bartenders, but in his dignity and his resolve.
