Pittsburgh Penguins Captain Sidney Crosby Delivered A Left Hook To Washington Capitals Center-Man Nic Dowd

The captain of the Pittsburgh Penguins, Sidney Crosby, was forced off the ice for a 2 minute penalty after punching Washington Capitals center-man Nic Dowd during Saturday's game in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania.

The Capitals and Penguins have been sworn rivals since the 1980's, after the Washington Capitals were formed in 1974 and began plundering trophies during the late 70's and early 80's.

The penalty was only shortly served before Capital's deference-man, Dmitry Orlov, scored.

Which nullified Crosby's penalty, keeping himself squeaky clean from the 2 minute penalty being struck onto his record.

Tit for tat sucker punches have been a common sight in recent seasons, with a similar incident involving Detroit Red Wings center-forward Dylan Larkin and Ottawa Senators right-wing Mathieu Joseph.
