09:24 AM ET 01.19 | All Sidney Crosby has to do is ask -- or first, be asked. That's what it will take to have him carry the Canadian flag in the opening ceremony of the Winter Olympics in Sochi. He has to want to do it. The Canadian Olympic Committee has to choose him to do it. The rest will take care of itself. Penguins general manager Ray Shero told the Toronto Sun by email Saturday that he agreed with the Boston Bruins move to allow captain Zdeno Chara to miss a National Hockey League game so the captain could carry the Slovakian flag in the opening ceremony on Feb. 7. But what about his captain? "Hard to turn down that opportunity," Shero wrote. "Agreed with Boston on letting (Chara) go."

Very good, Canuck. If the freaking ref had just dropped the puck. Another good one was Howard of the Wings pushing, and bumping Quick afterward. Then finally winning a SO. Wonders.
