Sidney Crosby appears to have been knocked unconscious.

In what was either an incredibly unfortunate accident or a vicious blow to the head from Washington Capitals defenseman Matt Niskanen Crosby was on the receiving end of a cross-check like motion to the head.

The blow rocked Crosby and sent him down to the ice, and while he tried to push through it it was clear that he was no longer all there. Crosby attempted to get up several different times, but failed to do so several times as well.

A scary moment on the eve of him being named a finalists for the NHL MVP.
