Sitting Ringside



Wait just a minute.

Seriously, just a minute.

Sidney Crosby was called for boarding Montreal defenseman Josh Gorges — who had his back to the Penguins captain — only 10 seconds into Game 7 of their Eastern Conference semifinal series at Mellon Arena.

Only 22 seconds later, the Canadiens took a 1-0 lead when Brian Gionta scored his sixth playoff goal by redirecting a backhand from the left circle by defenseman PK Subban.

It was the third time in the playoffs that Penguins goalie Marc-Andre Fleury allowed the first goal on the first shot he faced.

And, to make matters worse, the Penguins got a penalty in the process.

Matt Cooke was called for high-sticking, keeping the penalty kill unit on the ice without one of its top performers. But the Penguins escaped that infraction without giving up another goal.
