That's an interesting question. I don't have an immediate answer other than I guess the Calder is about measuring guys over the course of a real NHL season and the playoffs, while they are a unique and beneficial experience, aren't really reflective of the regular season?

Pittsburgh has FOUR of their top-6 defencemen out with injuries right now. That's bonkers.

Oh my.

If all the other players were digitally edited out, I could be persuaded that it was a creative shootout attempt.  He just went right down the middle.

There was also this earlier in the game:

Goes five-hole for practice.

Alternate caption: there's more than one way to split the D.

It's like Crosby is playing a real-life video game sometimes.

It's against Buffalo though, so he's playing on easy mode.

(Kidding aside, that was a ridiculous goal)
