Yesterday, we posted a video of NHL referee Chris Rooney getting hit the face with a deflected puck and last night, Pittsburgh Penguins star Sidney Crosby was feeling the same pain.

Corsby would eventually return to the game and help the Pens win the game by the score of 4-2. If this moment seems like deja vu to you, Crosby got hit in the face with a puck last season by you guessed it....Brian Strait:
