(Newser) – It's a big mystery, Canadian-style. Sidney Crosby is missing the hockey stick he used to score the winning gold against USA at the Olympics. He's also down one glove, and nobody's seen the puck since it went between goalie Ryan Miller's pads. Someone made off with all of them in the bedlam following Crosby's goal, reports National Post.
