Sidney Crosby, the captain of the Pittsburgh Penguins, is typically known for his composure and stoicism on the ice. He's often described as one of the calmest players in the NHL, rarely showing emotion and usually sticking to the usual cliches and hockey jargon in interviews.

However, during a post-game interview with the TNT crew following yesterday's matchup between the Philadelphia Flyers and the Pittsburgh Penguins, Crosby's demeanor took a noticeable turn. Joining the panel, which included former Penguins Head Coach Tony Granato, Crosby appeared visibly moved.

Granato, who recently revealed his battle with cancer, offered some heartfelt words to Crosby, encouraging him to take a moment to appreciate the win.

"We've been discussing all along, how important and how well you represent the game. And as always, after a tough game like this, take a few minutes, be smiling and wear your Penguins cap with pride. Thanks for being Sid.»

Crosby's response was filled with emotion, his voice cracking as he expressed his gratitude. It's evident that Granato's mentorship and friendship hold significant meaning for Crosby. As Granato continues his fight against cancer, our thoughts and prayers are with him.
