Sidney Crosby makes WWE move, gets smacked by linesman (GIFs)

Sidney Crosby did an un-Sidney Crosby-like thing Tuesday night: He retaliated for a hit with a move straight out of the WWE.

With the Carolina Hurricanes up by three goals late in the game against Crosby’s Pittsburgh Penguins, Jay Harrison hit Crosby, who threw a punch and then grabbed Harrison by the throat and slammed him to the ice.

Maybe Crosby was still smarting from an earlier exchange with a linesman, who accidently smacked him across the kisser.
