The announcers here are transfixed on the sneaky little play Tyler Kennedy makes behind the Atlanta Thrashers' net, using his leg to trip up Ron Hainsey and steal the puck. The more replays they view, however, the more it becomes apparent that Sidney Crosby had just scored a remarkable goal for the Pittsburgh Penguins:
Falling down was one thing; placing the puck where he did while falling down ... well, that's pretty darn cool right there. Sid had a goal and two assists, and the Penguins skated away with a 3-2 win over the rapidly cooling Thrashers. Like we said: Underrated goal scorer.
