It's funny what playing on a line with Sidney Crosby can do for someone. After breaking free from the Edmonton Oilers (where he had the nerve to actually question things! In Edmonton! Unthinkable!), Perron found himself on a line with Crosby. He must've been praying extra hard to get out of Edmonton, because when you think of "answered prayers," this is some Hollywood tear-jerker finale level shit. Perron has nine goals and four assists in 20 games, scoring in his first as a Penguin.
Speaking of Sid, he has seven career fights now* after this tussle with Brandon Dubinsky. I don't know if I'd say that he won, but I really can't blame Crosby for throwing down.
You know what Crosby doesn't have in his career? A goal against the Blues. Let's keep it that way.
This is your morning open thread. Check back in a bit for your Memorabilia Memories featuring the littlest goalie, and head back by for your preview and GDT. While you're waiting, head on over to PensBurgh to see what their take is for tonight.
*I don't know if that counts the time that he treated Boris Valabik's balls as a speedbag, but I'll assume no.
