Sidney Crosby wins fight but Matt Niskanen has the last word
Sidney Crosby dropped the gloves and let fly with some punches to the upper region of Matt Niskanen's person in the Dallas Stars' 5-2 victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins on Wednesday night.
Hockeyfights.com voters rated Crosby the winner (68 percent of the vote; 20 percent rated it a draw). Say this about Niskanen: while losing in hand-to-hand combat with Crosby is a little like losing in a skills competition to Donald Brashear, Niskanen did show more fight than the Cowboys on an average Sunday.
After the game, Niskanen was asked if the altercation was something he'd tell his grandchildren about one day.
"That I got beat up by Sidney Crosby? I suppose not too many guys are in that club."
