The Pittsburgh Penguins clinched a spot in the Stanley Cup Playoffs on Tuesday with a 3-1 win over the Buffalo Sabres. The first goal of the game came on a power play late in the 1st period when Sidney Crosby did something spectacular.

During an earlier shift Crosby gave Buffalo’s Ryan O’Reilly what the kids call a “cup check” or “dick tap.” Crosby tapped O’Reilly between the legs from behind and O’Reilly went to the ice while Crosby acted like nothing happened.
And finally, Crosby was hit in the face with a high stick from Evander Kane and lost some teeth.
