The Pittsburgh Penguins' captain Sidney Crosby lashed out on his head coach, Mike Sullivan, at the bench during a recent game against the Carolina Hurricanes.

With the many rumors going around about the fact that Crosby could currently be playing his final season in Pittsburgh, this doesn't look good for his fate with the Penguins.

Sidney Crosby loses control at the bench and lashes out on his head coach Mike Sullivan during game



On Tuesday night, the Penguins faced the Carolina Hurricanes, and managed to secure a crucial win.


However, after a shift, when Crosby returned to the bench, he was visibly upset. He got into it with Sullivan and argued for several seconds before sitting down.

Watch their altercation in the video below:


With 10 games remaining to the season, Pittsburgh is still 7th in the Metropolitan division, and their playoff aspirations are wearing thin.

Crosby could miss the playoffs for the second straight time, a first in his career.

What does this mean for Sid's future in Pittsburgh?

There's a lot of uncertainty about Crosby's future in Pittsburgh.



A lot of things could go wrong before July 1st, when the free agents market opens. Crosby will be a free agent, as his contract expires after te current season.

With Kyle Dubas at the helm of the team, we never know what to expect, but it's safe to say that he'll do everything in his power to make sure the team gets better over the summer.

However, Crosby might want to explor other scenarios. Many teams would be ready to pay the big price to land him, but at the end of the day, he'll sign wherever he wants to.

If his patience with Sullivan is wearing out, Dubas might be forced to make a choice about that issue.

Do you think Crosby will remain in Pittsburgh for the rest of his career?
