Crosby Wins ESPY as Best NHL Player
Jul 21, 2008, 2:00 PM EDT


Sidney Crosby, who shared the NHL scoring lead in the playoffs and led the Penguins to the Stanley Cup finals before his 21st birthday, was named the winner of the ESPY award as the Best NHL Player.

Winners are selected in a nationwide vote of fans, conducted by ESPN. It was the second straight year that Crosby won the NHL award.

The ESPY Awards show, in its 16th year, was hosted by Justin Timberlake at the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles and televised nationally by ESPN on Sunday night.

Tiger Woods was named Best Male Athlete and Brett Favre of the Green Bay Packers was honored for Best Record-Breaking Performance.

Among the other winners were Tom Brady of the New England Patriots (Best NFL Player), Kobe Bryant of the Los Angeles Lakers (Best NBA Player), Alex Rodriguez of the New York Yankees (Best Baseball Player), the Boston Celtics (Best Team), Candace Parker of the University of Tennessee and LA Sparks (Best Female Athlete) and the New York Giants (Best Upset).

Crosby, 20, was tied for the NHL scoring lead with 63 points and challenging for his second straight league scoring title when he suffered a high ankle sprain Jan. 18 against Tampa Bay.

He missed 29 games and finished the regular season with 24 goals and 48 assists for 72 points in 53 games.

Crosby averaged 1.36 points per game while NHL scoring champion Alexander Ovechkin of the Washington Capitals averaged 1.37.

In the playoffs, Crosby became a dominant force once again, registering 27 points in 20 games (6-21-27) to tie Henrik Zetterberg of the Detroit Red Wings for the league scoring lead. Zetterberg played two more games.

Crosby and the Penguins will report to training camp on Sept. 16. The Penguins will open the season in Stockholm, Sweden with games against the Ottawa Senators on Oct. 4-5.

and i watched the ESPY's and it wasnt even mentioned if i could remember right.

JT did a decent job as the host but if he cut down on the performances they might have been able to get in more awards (hey its ESPN though)

I also thought the Pens-Wings Triple OT game should of won best finish but then again its ESPN right. Same, in my oponion, could be said for Rick Nash's GWG. I watched both the Super Bowl and that game where Nash scored and i was left in more aww after the Nash without a doubt

What's even more impressive about this is that the Penguin fans votes were SPLIT between Sid and Geno.
