Crosby hammers Islander fans for cheering after puck hits his face

Sidney Crosby doesn't think much of New Yorkers - specifically Islanders' fans.

"(They) didn't show a lot of class," the Pittsburgh Penguins forward told following the Pens 4-2 win on the island Tuesday night.

He continued: "I wouldn't do that."

During the second period of Tuesday night's game Crosby was involved in a scary moment when a deflected puck bloodied his nose, forcing the NHL's top player to leave the game as chants of "Crosby sucks" went up around Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum.

Following a day off ahead of Pittsburgh's game in Washington tonight, Crosby told the Post-Gazette he expects to play before reassuring reporters that Tuesday night's scare won't have an impact on his play.

Keeping Crosby's past concussion issues in mind, even the announcers called into question home supporters applauding as Crosby was being helped off the ice, leaving a trail of blood in his wake.

Crosby returned to action a short time later and eventually re-entered the contest, finishing the game with an assist to his name.

Crosby has four goals and 10 assists through 10 games in 2013.
