Sidney Crosby can really do it all. 

The captain of the Penguins suited up as a goalie in a Pittsburgh-area ball hockey game Tuesday, and was joined by former Penguin Colby Armstrong.

Crosby played for "Team Iceland" in a division in the Cranberry Dek Hockey League.

And of course, the 28-year-old led the team to a victory, by a score of 4-3.

It's not the first time Crosby has strapped on the pads in ball hockey, as the native of Cole Harbour, N.S., also suited up in December 2012, during the NHL lockout.
