PITTSBURGH (93-7 The FAN) – Sidney Crosby is off to a slow start this year with just two goals, but you can count his former teammate Colby Armstrong amongst those who aren’t worried.

“It’s funny how things work out though, maybe the last game there can get him going, get some goals for him,” Armstrong said. “They’ve put him in a few different positions in the middle of the ice on the power play, now they got him down around the net… it’s funny how things work out for those guys and, you know, maybe it’s what he needed to get going here, and he starts rolling them into the net.”

Armstrong looks back at his days playing with Crosby and says he never thought his shot would rack up 50 goals in a season, but he always expected a lot of points from him.

“When I played with him, I didn’t think … he’d ever break 50 with the shot he has,” Armstrong said. “It’s a good shot, but it’s not something that I thought he’d be putting up huge numbers, so I guess he surprised me on that one … but his play-making, his production is always going to be there… For me, I’m not really worried about him.”

Armstrong also gave us his thoughts on 3-on-3 overtime and if he’s a fan of the new rule.

“I love it,” he said. “Trading chances back and forth and more than often it ends with a goal. I think it’s exciting.”
