Sidney Crosby Splits Islanders, Leaves Defensemen in the Dust Before Scoring Amazing Goal (Video)

Goalies aren’t the only ones who feel the wrath of Sidney Crosby, but they sure do bear the brunt of the load. On Thursday night, however, the Penguins captain picked on some defensemen for a change, much to the delight of netminders almost everywhere.

But that’s not to say Islanders goalie Evgeni Nabokov was safe.

During the Penguins’ 4-0 win over the Islanders on Thursday night, Sid the Kid split Isles defensemen Lubomir Visnovsky and Thomas Hickey en route to an incredible tally.

Crosby got the feed from Jarome Iginla at center ice and gracefully danced his way through the defenders, leaving them in the dust before beating Nabokov far side for the Pens’ third goal of the evening.
