This one will probably please plenty of Philadelphia Flyers fans missing out on their regularly scheduled hatred of Pittsburgh Penguins star Sidney Crosby due to the NHL being locked out. Who needs actual real-life games to partake in a little Sid schadenfreude? <p> Via the video game junkies over at Kotaku comes what is being dubbed as a glitch in EA Sports' NHL 13 that allows you to do a "Hercules Check" that sends an opposing player over the boards and into the stands.

Via the video game junkies over at Kotaku comes what is being dubbed as a glitch in EA Sports’ NHL 13 that allows you to do a “Hercules Check” that sends an opposing player over the boards and into the stands.

Naturally, the first demonstration is with Sidney Crosby.

Here’s what Kotaku says about this wonderful find:

This is a glitch video to end all glitch videos, and not just because that’s a player getting checked over the glass and into the fourth row
of a hockey arena. It’s also Sidney Freaking Crosby, the Pittsburgh
Penguins superstar who has lost, like, an entire season’s worth of games
due to concussions, going back to early 2011.

If you need to know how to replicate this fantastic maneuver, they explain here.

We don’t like you either, digital Sidney Crosby.
