Penguins captain Sidney Crosby has earned the nickname "Sid the Kid" for his masterful play, but his nickname took on a new meaning Tuesday thanks to a crying baby on a flight out of Pittsburgh that was headed to Boston.

The pilot on the JetBlue flight heard a baby crying on board, and then asked over the intercom if it was Crosby, who has spent a chunk of the last two games whining to officials.

Our Joe Haggerty and Mike Giardi were both on the plane.

Crosby and the Penguins have tried to match the Bruins' physicality in the Eastern Conference Finals, but the Bruins have taken a 2-0 series lead, outscoring the Penguins 9-1.

Pittsburgh will need to rebound in Game 3 tomorrow night to avoid a 3-0 hole in the series. Whether or not they'll be able to do it without crying to referees remains to be seen.
