Pittsburgh Journalists Shocked by Unusual Scene at the the Bell Centre Last Night

An unusual scene unfolded at the Bell Centre yesterday before the game between the Montreal Canadiens and the Pittsburgh Penguins.

During the announcement of the visiting team's lineup by announcer Michel Lacroix, when Sidney Crosby's name was called, instead of the usual boos, the Penguins' captain received a warm welcome.

Here are the images:




Although it may seem trivial, according to the reactions of the Penguins' journalists present, such a reception appears to be extremely rare in the NHL.

Two Pittsburgh journalists reported, as mentioned by my colleague William Nadeau from Habs et LNH, that Montreal is the only city in the entire league where Crosby receives such a welcome.

Despite the fact that number 87 has often been a formidable opponent for the Canadiens, even yesterday with a tally of two goals and three points, Montreal fans seem to maintain an unshakeable love for him since his debut in the show.

A career end in Montreal for Crosby would be a magical scenario, considering he has repeatedly confessed that the Canadiens were his childhood team, not to forget that his father, Troy Crosby, was drafted by the organization in 1984.
