The crowd smooshed together in front of Sidney Crosby's locker was five deep, and there was a lot of jockeying for position as the Pittsburgh Penguins superstar took questions following Wednesday's morning skate.

At one point, a television cameramen from Pittsburgh couldn't get a clear shot, so he tried pushing a reporter from Philadelphia in front of him out of the way.

Turning back for a look, the reporter said, "Where do you want me to go?"

Having the best view of the exchange, Crosby stopped talking midsentence, broke into a smile, and said, "Playoffs — the intensity is starting already!"
