Sidney Crosby answers the media's questions

VIDEO: Sidney Crosby, Patrice Bergeron field Olympics questions in Sochi

Crosby spoke on playing against his teammates, Evgeni Malkin and coach Dan Bylsma, and the Russian team's skill set.



Members of Team Canada faced the media on Tuesday in Sochi, Russia, two days ahead of their opening Olympic match against Norway.

Sidney Crosby (video below) spoke on his relationships with Pittsburgh teammate Evgeni Malking – who will be playing for the host nation, Russia – and Penguins coach Dan Bylsma, who is coaching Team USA.

“Once you get out there, it’s all right… you get used to it a bit. The weirdest part is in the Village, when you’re walking by them and they’re wearing different colours and they’re with different guys, that you’re usually playing against.

“Once you get out there, everyone knows what they have to do.”

Crosby was asked whether his relationship with Malkin, Bylsma, or anyone else gives him or his Canadian teammates – which include his Penguins linemate Chris Kunitz – a leg-up over their competition.

“With scouting and everything like that, I don’t think there’s anything that’s going to surprise anybody,” Crosby said, fielding questions after practice. “It’s how you’re going to play as a team. To know little things is nice, but they also know the same about you, too. I think it evens out at the end of the day.”
