Sidney Crosby "You expect it to be a tough area, I don't think you expect to get cross-checked (in the back of the neck). It happens from time to time.

Sidney Crosby "It's not the days where Dino Ciccarelli had to sit there and take a beating, It's a little different. I think we're probably a lot better off than some of the guys who had to play there before, guys like (Rick Tocchet) and guys like that.
