Sidney Crosby has amazing talent, but that didn’t stop former NHL player and current NBC Sports hockey analyst Jeremy Roenick from criticizing the Pittsburgh Penguins star during Game 2 of the Eastern Conference final.
And it didn’t take very long for these choice words to come back and bite Roenick.
Roenick picked a rather unfortunate night to rip Crosby for his effort, as the center evened the series with the Tampa Bay Lightning at one game apiece with his game-winning goal 40 seconds into overtime in the Penguins’ 3-2 win.
That certainly looked like plenty of effort on that play.
