COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) It’s no secret. The Columbus Blue Jackets’ Brandon Dubinsky straddles a fine-line with his ultra-aggressive style against Sidney Crosby.
Dubinsky ratcheted up an already intense game when he cross-checked the Penguins star in the back of the neck late in the second period, then helped clinch victory with a dazzling setup on Cam Atkinson’s overtime goal in the Blue Jackets’ 2-1 win over Pittsburgh on Friday night.
Crosby was slow getting to his skates and went to the locker room with 1:20 left, but returned for the third period and played the rest of the game. Dubinsky was assessed a minor penalty, and the NHL’s department of player safety will hold a hearing about the incident on Saturday.
