Episode 2 of “HBO 24/7 Red Wings/Maple Leafs: Road To The NHL Winter Classic” was a massive leap in improvement from the tepid opening edition.

One reason? A special guest star.

Sidney Crosby and the Pittsburgh Penguins played both the Detroit Red Wings and the Toronto Maple Leafs during the week leading up to Episode 2, and it was his game against the Leafs that gave us the highlight of the week – and gave Sid one of his, uh, most candid moments on camera.

Also in this clip, referee Mike Leggo has an amazingly classic moment, breaking up a scrum by screaming, “YOU KNOW WHAT, [EXPLETIVE] BOTH OF YOU!”

(In other words, the language in this clip is very strong and NSFW)

For the audio impaired, the glorious exchange between Sid and Dion:

SID: “A guy runnin’ an elbow up through my head, that’s OK too, right?”

DION: “Who did?”

SID: “Kadri. [Explitive] dummy. Then he acts like he got shot.”

DION: “You [expletive] hit me from behind, Sid!”

SID: “I did not. C’mon, I don’t even hit anybody. I haven’t hit anybody [expletive] this year.”

DION: “You wouldn’t like it if I pushed you like that.”

SID: “Probably not, but you’d do it all night anyway.”

DION: “I got a job to do too.”

SID: “Yeah well Kadri is a [expletive] joke. You tell’em.”

Annnnnnnnd scene.

And with that, Sidney Crosby became the Loki of “HBO 24/7.” It doesn’t have to be his movie for him to steal every scene that he’s in, as our favorite nefarious troublemaker.

s/t Chris Peters for the video.
