Patrik Elias thinks that Sidney Crosby embellished to draw a holding penalty during Saturday's game.

Elias spent two minutes in the sin bin as a result. "I didn't disagree with the penalty. I didn't like the way he went down," Elias said. "I know I'm not that strong to throw him down. It made it look like I knocked his feet out." It didn't end up altering the outcome of Pittsburgh's 5-1 victory over New Jersey. In fact, the Devils netted a shorthanded goal while Elias was serving his time.
