In an unexpected twist during a preseason game, Sidney Crosby, the captain of the Pittsburgh Penguins, got into a fight with Peyton Krebs of the Buffalo Sabres. This all started when Kris Letang, Crosby's teammate, was hit by Krebs with a check that some considered dirty.

Crosby, who's more known for his skills than his fighting, didn't like the hit on Letang and decided to settle the score by throwing punches. The two players exchanged blows in a scrappy fight, with no clear winner.

In the end, Crosby managed to bring Krebs down to the ice, ending the fight. This isn't something you see from Crosby often, but it shows his determination to stand up for his teammates, even in preseason games.

This incident adds an interesting twist to the Penguins-Sabres rivalry, and fans will be curious to see what happens next as the regular season approaches.
