#SidneyCrosbyCheats tweets drown out Couture's complaints

 Crosby faceoff

One day after San Jose center Logan Couture accused Sidney Crosby of cheating on faceoffs, Penguins fans are assailing the Shark with snark.

Twitter is abuzz with the hashtag #SidneyCrosbyCheats in response to Couture’s postgame comments following a Game 2 loss to the Penguins.

When asked about Crosby’s success on faceoffs, Couture said: “He cheats. He gets away with that. He’s Sidney Crosby.”

Pittsburghers seem to be laughing off the accusation rather than stewing about it.

Despicable.

What a double-standard!

I don’t think that’s how Sudoku works.

Well, that would explain the whole “best player in the world thing.”

I also think #SidneyCrosbyCheats because he wears skates while playing hockey, he uses a steak knife when eating a ribeye, and when he goes to movie theaters he just sets his phone on “vibrate” rather than completely off.

@LoganCouture has not joined in on the hashtag yet. Stay tuned.
