The game could have been summarized as "Karlsson shuts down Crosby and simultaneously scores hattrick" but instead it's become just another "Crosby extends streak" game.
We're probably not making the playoffs, so that would have been the highlight of the season. But I guess it's better for us contract-wise if Karlsson remains a little under the radar league-wide.
Let's stay low-profile, a poor version of the Red Wings.
As for the "Crosby is the best player in the world right now" poll, Yeah probably.
All things considered (talent, work ethic, humility and character), I still take Pavel Datsyuk before him.
Crosby has all those things too though.
