Sidney Crosby basically hacked off Marc Methot’s finger (Video)

During his career as one of the NHL’s most divisive players, Pittsburgh Penguins star Sidney Crosby has been given plenty of fingers. On Thursday night, apparently he wanted to take one.

The Penguins were visited the Ottawa Senators. In the first period, defenseman Marc Methot carried into the attacking zone during 4-on-4 play. Crosby laid a slash across his hands as the play was whistled offside. Methot pulled up, shook his glove, skated up to Crosby and shared some words. Crosby gave the hockey equivalent of an eye-roll and the officials broke up any potential conflict.

After he took off his glove, Methot’s finger was a bloody stub.

OK …

Yikes. Someone’s been digging in the cherry pie before dessert…

Methot didn’t return to the game. Crosby wasn’t penalized, much like he wasn’t penalized when he used his stick to scrape barnacles off the hull of Ryan O’Reilly the other night.

Sidney Crosby. Hockey’s greatest heel. Never change, sir.
