Lundqvist Offers Crosby a Drink: May 11th, 2014
It was the second round of the 2014 Eastern Conference Playoffs, and the Rangers were making a comeback against the Pittsburgh Penguins after being 3-1 down in the series.
Tensions were high on both teams after Pittsburgh had been criticized for dirty play throughout the series, but Henrik Lundqvist avoided most of the drama.
But when Crosby gave Dominic Moore a cheap shot to the groin in Game 6, Lundqvist decided to take matters into his own hands.
Lundqvist basically no comment on water squirting end of 2nd period, just says it’s something he does at end of every period.

A small scruff ensued after the Crosby cheap shot, which ended with Crosby on the top of the pile. Lundqvist skated by Crosby and emptied his water bottle on Crosby’s face (video above).
The best part of the whole incident is how nonchalant Hank is while squirting Crosby.
Lundqvist told Luke Fox of Sportsnet.ca:
“I always squirt it when I go off the ice, I don’t know what you’re talking about.”
