Sidney Crosby will pay for acting classes, with his teeth

After his unpunished nutshot on the Sabres' Ryan O'Reilly, Sidney Crosby was a marked man for the rest of the game. And with barely any time left in the game, Evander Kane's stick bounced off Crosby's face, only for the player to go down like he was rear-ended by a dump truck.

Sabres top defenseman Rasmus RIstolainen has been ejected from the game for this hit on the Pens Jake Guentzel. On the replay, you'll see that the puck never made it to the forward who was looking behind for the puck, while Risto turns around and does/doesn't really try to get out of his way either. It'll be interesting to see how the NHL rule this one, especially since there was contact with the head.

It's a bad-tempered game in Buffalo tonight, and Sidney Crosby is showing the world of hockey exactly why he is such a polarizing figure, mixing in his immense skill with unnecessary dirty play like this.

No reason why Marcus Foligno can't look his best while fighting is there? Especially when he has to take on a crusty old dog called Shawn Thornton, might as well look good taking down that useless relic.
