The 3 plays in sports everybody will be talking about today

Good morning! Here are the plays everybody will be talking about Tuesday:

The shot to Sidney Crosby’s head. The Washington Capitals won the critical Game 3 of their series, 3-2 in overtime, against the Pittsburgh Penguins. The win cut the Pens lead in the series to 2-1. But the moment everybody is talking about is cross-check to the head of Crosby by the Caps Matt Niskanen. Crosby laid on the ice for several moment before gingerly skating off. Niskanen received a 5-minute major penalty and Crosby did not return to the game.


The Kevin Shattenkirk game-winner. Shattenkirk helped the Pens avoid a disastrous 3-0 deficit with this power-play goal just a little over three minutes into overtime. The goal comes at the 3:25 mark of this video.


The LeBron James alley-oop. The Cavs had little trouble with the Raptors in Game 1 of their series, building a 12-point lead at the end of the first quarter and stretching that to 22 points by the end of the third. LeBron showed early on how the game was going to go with a steal, followed by an alley-oop dunk off the glass from Kyrie Irving. 


The LeBron James beer bonus. LeBron was so relaxed during the game that the actually grabbed a beer bottle from a server and pretended to take a drink. He joked after the game that he might have actually taken a sip if if it had been red wine [read more here]
