Team games played record a taboo topic to Sidney Crosby
Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby does literally hundreds of interviews during the course of any given season, politely answering thousands of questions.
After Monday’s practice in Cranberry, he finally found a hockey-related topic he refused to discuss.
Crosby has played in 913 games in his career. Mario Lemieux holds the franchise record for games played with 915. If all goes according to plan, Crosby will tie the record Thursday night at Florida.
Discussing the possibility that far in advance tempted fate too much for the superstitious Crosby to handle.
“I’m not going there,” he said. “We’ll talk about it when we get there.”
