BOSTON (CBS) – With the Boston Bruins up 2-0 on the top-seeded Pittsburgh Penguins in the Eastern Conference Finals, the Pens are finding themselves not only frustrated, but the butt-end of a few jokes.
Most of the Boston media flew back home on Tuesday morning, and prior to takeoff there was a crying child on board. While this is the worst-case scenario for most, the pilot of the jetBlue flight had a little fun — at Sidney Crosby’s expense.
“Is that Sidney Crosby in back of our plane!” the pilot asked over the loudspeaker.
The jab gives new meaning to the nickname, “Sid The Kid.”
Crosby has yet to score a point in the series — the first time all season he’s gone pointless in back-to-back games.
The Penguins star will certainly hear about this, but it’s nothing compared to what he’ll hear come Wednesday when the Boston fans get their first taste of the series in Game 3.
