SOCHI SCENE: Crosby's goal up close
Feb. 23, 2014
SOCHI, Russia (AP) — When Canadian superstar Sidney Crosby pounced on a turnover and steamrolled toward Swedish goalie Henrik Lundqvist in the second period, there was little doubt that Crosby was going to put it away.
He deked Lundqvist and shoveled it in on his backhand for a 2-0 lead, a finish that was perfectly captured in these two photographs by Associated Press photographers Julio Cortez and David J. Phillip, who were using remote-controlled cameras at the Bolshoy Ice Dome.
