Sidney Crosby’s first career playoff overtime-winner came on a perfectly placed shot, but his great goal is made even better thanks to the incredible soccer-style goal call from Hockey Night Punjabi’s Harnarayan Singh.Sidney Crosby scored the first playoff overtime-winner of his career Monday night, and while there were undoubtedly some great calls of the tally on radio and television, none come close to the way Hockey Night Punjabi play-by-play voice Harnarayan Singh exploded following Crosby’s marker. When the play started, it sounded like Singh was already on his feet, but when Crosby’s shot beat Tampa Bay Lightning netminder Andrei Vasilevskiy over the shoulder, Singh let loose one of the best overtime game-winner calls of the post-season. It’s got that big-game goal feel to it, and it’s hard not to smile when he holds Crosby’s name for five full seconds. Seems like he would have gone longer, too, had he not run out of breath: his call of Nick Bonino’s Game 1 tally, and his refrain of “Bonino Bonino Bonino” has caught on in Pittsburgh to the point the team’s official Twitter account is using it in scoring the Penguins’ goals.
