It didn’t take the captain long to showcase his hand-eye ability in the season opening game
Sidney Crosby’s amazing hand-eye coordination to generate amazing, creative goals has long been the stuff of legends.

It didn’t take very long this season for Crosby to find yet another way to do it again during the season opening game against the Flyers on Wednesday. Sid takes advantage of a risky clearing attempt by Carter Hart. Hart played the puck hard and got it off the ice, but Crosby doesn’t let him get away with it and ties the game in the second period.

This isn’t the first time Crosby scored a fun goal against the Flyers young goalie as we hit the time machine back to 2019.

In now 71 career games against Philadelphia, Crosby has 44 goals, 62 assists and 106 points. Those 44 goals are the most he has scored against any one team, while his 1.50 points-per-game average coming into the night is tied for his second-highest average against any opponent (only behind Crosby’s mastery of the New York Islander). No active player has more points against Philadelphia than Crosby, or is really even close. The next on the active list versus the Flyers is Evgeni Malkin with 73.
Until next time, this has been another addition of Sidney Crosby doing amazing things at the expense of Carter Hart and the Flyers.
