Pittsburgh Penguins win despite Sidney Crosby's knee injury
During the second period of game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals, Johan Franzen rubbed Sidney Crosby out into the boards near center ice injuring the young stars' knee. Crosby was obviously hurt as he came out limping and struggling back to the bench.
Sidney Crosby's injury turned out to be an outter knee injury where he injected pain medication and tried to freeze it before taking a 30 second shift in the third period. After the Franzen hit, Crosby played one, 30 second shift before watching the whole game on the bench.
However, the injury did not stop Sid the Kid from coming out and hoisting the Stanley Cup as the youngest captain in NHL history to win the Stanley Cup.
