They’re linked together by two of the most iconic sporting moments of the past 10 years, but Sidney Crosby and Ryan Miller have never discussed Canada’s 2010 Golden Goal or the shootout winner in the inaugural Winter Classic … even though the two men have become unlikely offseason training partners.
“It’s not something I’ve ever really talked about with him,” Crosby said ahead of Wednesday night’s meeting between the Penguins and Sabres in Buffalo. “I’ve skated with him for a couple of summers now. He’s a good guy, works hard. He loves to play and loves to compete. As far as the situations we’ve been in, it’s not a hot discussion topic, but everybody tries to link those situations together.”
Don’t expect the topics to arise if the two happen to bump into each other in the hallways of the First Niagara Center tonight, either.
“It’s in the past,” Crosby said. “We’re days away from the Olympics in Russia. Maybe after our careers, it’s something we talk about. There are other things we both want to accomplish.”
