GIF: Sidney Crosby makes amazing move off the boards


Usually, I’ll post GIFs of plays resulting in goals, or highlight-reel saves. But, this three second clip single-handedly displays why Sidney Crosby is the best player in the world. Literally single-handedly.

While falling to the ground, Crosby managed to keep the puck by bouncing it off the boards and around the Austrian player just one-hand on his stick. Then, after regaining control of the puck, he even made a backhand pass to the point from his knees. If only it had resulted in a goal for Canada.
