PITTSBURGH - Like so many others, Sidney Crosby was feeling a little embarrassed about his football forecasting abilities.

"Seattle's a good team," the Penguins captain said the day after the Seahawks destroyed the Broncos in the Super Bowl. "They were strong and my prediction didn't really look too good. I wasn't even close."

Crosby was then asked if he cared to redeem himself by picking the winner of gold medal in men's hockey at the Olympics.

"No, I'll let everyone else worry about that," he said Monday morning. "Obviously, we know where we want to be. There are a lot of other teams that want to be there too. It's probably a tougher one than the Super Bowl pick, that's for sure."

Crosby, who will also captain Team Canada in Sochi, admitted he's starting to think more and more about the Olympics as the start date gets near.
