Crosby Throws Fehervary into Boards in Big Capitals Win



Sidney Crosby, Washington Capitals, Martin Fehervary

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Martin Fehervary didn’t have much to say about the hit he took from Sidney Crosby in the Washington Capitals’ 6-1 victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Fehervary, who stood out with a shorthanded goal and solid defensive showing against Pittsburgh, chased the puck with a frustrated Sidney Crosby. As both were going behind the net, Crosby appeared to grab the 22-year-old blueliner and throw him into the boards.

There was no call on the play, which was somewhat of a questionable and considerably dangerous hit.

When asked about the play, Fehervary wasn’t dwelling too much on it.

“I don’t know, I don’t even know what should I talk about,” he laughed. “I don’t care. We’ll see next game.”

Fehervary finished the game with three shots, three hits, one block and a +/- of plus-2 through 16:59 minutes.

Crosby was playing in his first game back following a stint on the NHL’s COVID-19 protocol list. He finished the game with a shot, a hit, a +/- of minus-1 and two penalty minutes through 16:57.

Fehervary has been solid through 15 games so far, picking up two goals and three points while serving as a physical presence and a reliable shutdown defenseman who complements John Carlson well. He hasn’t shied away from throwing his weight around and engaging in puck battles this year, and he’s also sacrificing the body.
