A great quote from Inside Scoop recap (read full article here) :
And Kris Letang – who was also brilliant all night, chipping in five points (2G-3A) of his own – pointed out that Crosby probably could’ve finished with even more points.
“Maybe he’s still sick. He could’ve had like, 10 goals tonight,” Letang said with a laugh. “I don’t know. But that’s how special he is.”
Quote and recap from the Skills competition, from Inside Scoop (read full article here) :
* With Sidney Crosby missing the NHL All-Star Skills due to illness, Kris Letang thought he would replace his teammate in the Accuracy Shooting event and maybe earn some bragging rights.
“I thought I could replace him and maybe beat him at his own competition, I guess. I don’t know,” Letang said with a laugh.
