Sidney Crosby slashed Senators player's finger and the result was disgustingly bloody

For his next act, Crosby, impervious to penalties, apparently made a decision to try to take the finger of unsuspecting Senators defenseman Marc Methot during their game Thursday. The Montreal Canadiens are up next for the Senators as the two meet for the third time in eight days on Saturday in Montreal. "They don't feel good".

As expected, the Senators announced Methot wouldn't finish the game. "It turns out worse than most other times, plays like that happen all the time, but I don't think it was intentional or dirty".

"[I was] just really looking to put the puck on net", said Hoffman, who has 22 goals, including a Senators-leading 13 on the power play.

After being stopped on a partial break earlier in the period, Bonino opened the scoring at 9:21 of the second on the front half of a double minor to Senators defenceman Dion Phaneuf.

ABOUT THE PENGUINS (46-17-9): The Penguins' top line of Crosby, Conor Sheary and Jake Guentzel had been humming along with a staggering 25 points (10 goals, 15 assists) over the past five games, but Guentzel's availability is in question following a blindside hit by defenseman Rasmus Ristolainen.

For good reason. Get that thing stitched back up, pronto.

Sidney Crosby slashed Methot's finger, and while there was no penalty, Methot's finger was left bloody. "We've had to play a lot of games here lately with a lot of guys in different positions, different roles, and they've come in and done a great job". All in a week for the game's best player. I thought we had some quality chances.
