What the sudden playoff demises of Sidney Crosby and Chris Paul remind us about sports’ cruel timing

Title windows often open and close quickly in professional sports. Father Time remains undefeated, and there are no guarantees of sustained success in a world where free-agent departures and significant injuries are so prevalent. Amid a cluster of thrilling and not-so-thrilling Game 7s in the NBA and the NHL over the weekend, we saw one star-studded team — the NHL’s Penguins — that finally could see a prolonged run of championships and playoff berths coming to an end with a fourth consecutive first-round (or earlier) exit cemented with an OT loss to the Rangers. We also saw a top-tier NBA squad...

Penguins captain Sidney Crosby plans to play for three more seasons

Crosby, 34, registered 31 goals and 53 assists in 69 regular-season games in 2021-22, his 17th season since the Penguins drafted him first overall in 2005. Questions regarding how much longer Crosby will play have little to do with his playing ability and more to do with his health. He was sidelined for various ailments during the regular season, then exited Game 5 of Pittsburgh's first-round playoff series with the New York Rangers following a high hit from defenseman Jacob Trouba. Given Crosby has sustained multiple head injuries over his career, it's fair to question how many more hits he can sustain.

Sidney Crosby blasts NHL’s ‘terrible’ helmet rule after Penguins’ Game 7 loss

Sidney Crosby believes the NHL’s “terrible” helmet rule cost the Penguins in their 4-3 overtime loss to the Rangers in Game 7 on Sunday. With less than six minutes left in regulation, Penguins defenseman Marcus Pettersson lost his helmet after getting tied up with Rangers left winger Alexis Lafreniere behind the net. By rule, Petersson had to go straight to the bench after losing his helmet, opening the door for Rangers center Mika Zibanejad to take advantage of the moment and score, tying the game 3-3 with 5:45 left in the third. “Tonight I think was an example of one game, anything can happen and...

Penguins' Sidney Crosby: Continues elite form

Crosby registered his 17th point-per-game season with 84 points in 69 regular-season contests. Crosby also reached the 30-goal threshold for just the second time in the last five years while matching his career-best in game-winning goals with nine. Despite Crosby's high-level productivity, the Penguins once again found themselves bounced from the playoffs in the first round. While Crosby will definitely be back next year and offering elite-level fantasy value, he could see long-time running mates Evgeni Malkin or Kris Letang sporting different sweaters.
