Sidney Crosby sucks... the life out the Flyers on a routine basis.
(See what we did there? We're so clever.)
In 34 regular season games against the Penguins' bitter rival, Crosby has netted 59 points, good enough for a bloated points per game average of 1.74. Only the Islanders (62) have allowed more points to the Penguins' captain.
Flyers goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky allowed Crosby to build up his totals against Philadelphia last night by surrendering two goals and an assist to him. With that, he joined a not-so-exclusive fraternity of Flyers goaltender have have been scored on by Crosby.
From the hopeless Martin Biron to the unfortunately-named Martin Houle, here how Crosby's numbers against the Flyers break down:
(Points Per Game)
|Antero Nittymaki||12||9||10||19 (1.58)|
|Martin Biron||10||6||10||16 (1.60)|
|Robert Esche||5||5||5||10 (2.00)|
|Brian Boucher||3||2||3||5 (1.67)|
|Sergei Bobrovsky||2||2||1||3 (1.5)|
|Michael Leighton||1||2||0||2 (2.00)|
|Johan Backlund||1||0||2||2 (2.00)|
|Ray Emery||2||0||1||1 (0.50)|
|Martin Houle||1||0||1||1 (1.00)|
