When you're Sidney Crosby, you get used to people trying to talk a little trash. But on Sunday, Flyers fans at Philadelphia's Wells Fargo Center took the gamesmanship to a whole different level.

Pictures of the Pittsburgh Penguins captain's face started to appear in arena urinals during Game 3 of their first-round playoff series, prompting Crosby to be questioned about it following the Penguins' convincing victory. "It’s not the first building that’s happened in,” he said postgame, according to Sportsnet's Kristina Rutherford.

"I don’t know if they stole that idea from somewhere else. But yeah, it’s not the first time that’s happened."

A pilfered idea or not, you can't really hold it against Flyers fans for being a little pissed off with Sid, as No. 87 has torched Philly over the first three games to the tune of four goals and three assists.

The Penguins can earn a 3-1 stranglehold on the series Wednesday night when the puck drops on Game 4. Given how hot Crosby has been, it's safe to say the bathroom-related tactics won't be slowing him down anytime soon.
