08:17 AM ET 12.19 | Sidney Crosby clearly has free time these days, time taken up by building a new house and going to concerts at Consol Energy Center. Dek hockey can be added to that list of time-fillers as well. Stories surfaced on Twitter and Facebook late Friday and early Saturday that Crosby participated in a dek hockey game Friday at Dek Star, a rink in Ohio Township next to Interstate 279. Photos on Twitter showed Crosby dressed in goaltender gear. After an informal practice Monday at Southpointe, Crosby confirmed he moonlighted between the pipes. "My buddy plays in the league there. I talked to him about playing," Crosby said. "I played a lot of goalie in street hockey growing up and stuff. Just asked if he needed a goalie. He said sure and I came out. It was cool."

It's better than hearing NHL'ers whining about playing conditions over in Europe.

Couldn't agree more, Bishop, and in this case, the people playing against him had no idea who it was until the end of the game, and then he took the goalie mask off and surprised them all.

Again, like Stamkos playing beer league with his Dad, I like it.

aparantly the other team didn't know it was crosby in nets until he had left...must have been too much to find that out afterwards. And the team Crosby shut out was called....wait for it...FLYERS SUCK! lol...
