Watch: Sidney Crosby Scores a Double Back-Tap Tap in

The man they call the kid scores goals they call sublime. Not pretty. Not elegant. But poetic. Watch as Sidney Crosby banks a puck off of Antti Niemi's back--not because he wants to score, but because he wants the puck to bounce off Niemi's back and up into the air so he can bank it off of Niemi's back a second time, and into the goal.

That's how Sid rolls. In sequences. He's an illusionist. He can see the future and therefore he can shape the future. Crosby now has 16 goals in 18 games and the Pens improve to 14-7-2 with a 6-2 win over Dallas at PPG Arena.
