Still no? Ok here's a hint.
Again...look at Crosby....
Finally. Yes. He is not wearing a visor in the first picture...even though he started the game with it on.
Why is this news? 1. Cause I'm a Fanboy. 2. Because of the intriguing story behind it. Apparently...and this is rumor/speculation...Marc Savard and Sid Crosby are not very fond of one another and at some point early in the game Sunday, Crosby or Savard challenged the other to a fight. Savard apparently refused to fight Crosby because he was wearing a visor and he must have belittled/antagonized him so much because... what's Crosby do?...next shift he unscrews the visor, takes it off, and goes back on the ice. Hilarious. Savard called Crosby out...so Crosby called Savard out. Good times.
EDIT: Sidney Crosby does not take off his own visor...that's what equipment managers are for.
Now I didn't see any of the game because I was stuck in an airport and Ustream is big gay so I don't know if AFTER Crosby took the visor off if they got into any scuffles or whatever, but I just think it's funny.
Maybe when Ovechkin got under Crosby's skin a couple weeks ago it spread across the league that you need to harass the guy and get under his skin to get him off his game. Who knows. But I'm pretty sure the rest of the league is finding out that "getting him off...hehe...his game" usually back fires. Ovie did it well once. Then Crosby responded. I'm sure Ovie will respond back with another great game. That's the way it works with those two.
Crosby at least called Savard out, and from what I know, the two never did tango.
Keep in mind this isn't a post about blowing Crosby or anything. Just reporting what I've heard on the radio today...and for the love of Gawd...don't compare this to the Ovechkin/Crosby "feud". I think we've all had enough of the shit.
