On Tuesday night, after the Pittsburgh Penguins hammered the New York Rangers 7-2, Crosby did his best Santa Claus impression and gifted a little girl his stick.  The girl, in a Crosby jersey and super-cute pigtails, was at the game holding a sign that read: ‘Sid, can I have your stick please!’


We all know Crosby has great peripheral vision, because after spotting the sign and doing a double-take, the Penguins captain returned to make this young fan’s holiday season extra special. The best part is at the end of the clip – the look on the little girl’s face is priceless.
