Crosby's embarrassing display

This is pretty ridiculous:

I'm tied up in the newsroom due to the Canada-Russia festivities at the world juniors, but George Richards of the Miami Herald and Greg Wyshynski of Yahoo! Sports have more.

For what it's worth, I agree with Nick Boynton: "That was just embarrassing. I can understand a little bit what he was trying to do, but that's a not a very professional move. You ask a guy to fight. You don't jump a guy when his head is down taking a face off. That's pretty immature and childish."

UPDATE This is sort of the night for weird fights, as Alexander Semin took a turn "playing the bongos" on Marc Staal in the Caps star's first NHL fight.

I noticed Doug Weight fought Christian Ehrhoff in San Jose, too.
