FOR A LITTLE more than a month, Penguins captain Sidney Crosby - like most locked-out NHL players not already overseas - has been twirling around the rinks of suburban Pittsburgh waiting for a labor resolution.
With that surplus of energy comes a little boredom - and perhaps bravado.
Crosby, in a wide-ranging interview with the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, addressed Claude Giroux's claim that he broke both of Giroux's wrists during the Flyers' epic first-round series against the Penguins last season.
"I don't try to go after his wrists, but if I caught it, I'm not sorry for it," Crosby said. "I really like to win the faceoff. I think it's hilarious that I hear that stuff from Philly. It's comedy to me, to be honest with you. They're probably involved in that stuff more than any team in the league and they're the ones always talking about it.
