Sidney Crosby: doesn't wear helmet in warmups, scores goal


"We’ll see. I don’t know what you’re talking about."

Sidney Crosby, via Sporting News, when asked if he'd continue not wearing his helmet in the warmup, as he suddenly did before the Penguins' game against the Avalanche.

Crosby shook up his normally ironclad routine, and also scored his third goal of the season. The SN article does a great job of detailing his superstitions through the years, and speculates if this is going to be another.

After all, Crosby's start to the season has been rather slow. But with a game-winning goal, this change seemed to pay off, so maybe it'll be something new in his routine, now. And maybe he'll score more goals!
