Sidney Crosby's two-handed slash injures Marc Methot long term


When Sidney Crosby landed a two-handed slash on defenseman Marc Methot's left hand, it seemed like a normal play that happens every NHL game. Except this time it was not your normal hockey play.

Methot removed his glove to reveal a severed pinky, dangling by a piece of skin. He left the game and did not return with what the Ottawa Senators called a “laceration”. After the game, Senators head coach Guy Boucher told reporters that Methot's finger was shattered and he will be out for weeks.



It's the second time this week Crosby has been in the spotlight for playing dirty. In a previous game against the Buffalo Sabres, Crosby slashed Ryan O'Reilly in the balls.
