Claude Giroux accuses Sidney Crosby of cheating (on faceoffs)

New, comments

The ref doesn't believe him, but I dunno, I'd listen to G.

Remember HBO's 24/7 series, the Road to the Winter Classic? Probably - the Philadelphia Flyers got the chance to be featured on it before it died, and it gave us the gift that is off-ice Ilya Bryzgalov.

Well, the Pittsburgh Penguins kind of have something similar going on with their own mini series, In the Room, which gives fans a behind-the-scenes look at the Penguins throughout their season.

I'm telling you this so you don't have to watch it, but instead, can appreciate the highlight from their latest episode. About 7:50 in the Flyers pop up, the Penguins' opponent for the night; about 9:00 in, we get the following exchange, courtesy of Claude Giroux:

I dunno, maybe the ref should listen to G, though? Can't trust Sidney Crosby.

Also, right before it, the episode shows Crosby getting hit by Wayne Simmonds. After the hit, Crosby skates up to Simmonds, says, "That's a big body," a couple of times, and then that's all. At least his powers of perception are solid.
