Sidney Crosby Drops the Gloves After Big Hit on Letang

This has been an eventful summer for the Pittsburgh Penguins, and after reloading, this is a team invigorated and ready to chase another Cup, and if that wasn't already evident, it is now.

Leading from the front


Sidney Crosby has been one of the greatest captains in NHL history, and now, even as he creeps towards 40, he's still proving that he's got plenty of fight in him.

In their latest pre-season tilt against the Buffalo Sabres, one of Crosby's key teammates Kris Letang took a surprising hit, and it brought out something we rarely see: Crosby dropping the gloves.

A superb captain

Over his career, this isn't something we've seen much, as Crosby has often had players around him that can do the dirty work, but in this one, he inspired his teammates by showing he'll stand up for them in any way he can.

In 1,190 games for the Penguins, Crosby has tallied 1,502 points and has registered less than 10 fights in his career, but with a Stanley Cup in mind, this has now shown us he's willing to do anything he can to get No. 4.
