6 Best Calvin Pickard Saves for Colorado Avalanche

Pickard Robs Sidney Crosby

Pittsburgh Penguins center Sidney Crosby is largely heralded as one of the best, if not the best, forward in the NHL. He is a superstar.

Apparently Calvin Pickard was unimpressed in the December 18 game. Crosby found the puck in the neutral zone — having to look skyward to locate it. No matter — the puck just comes to some players. Suddenly, he was on a mini breakaway.

Seeing Sidney Crosby coming at you on a breakaway has to be the stuff of nightmares for a goalie — just ask silver medalist Henrik Lundqvist. Picks just waited, skating out of his crease to cut down the angle. Crosby shot, but Pickard robbed the superstar of his goal.
