But you know that with challenge comes opportunity. Philadelphia, Last year, with Crosby and Malkin out, and no real backups to speak of, you had to shoulder most of the burden.
It was 3—1, but… the playoffs flameout was inevitable, right? And the season before that was a perfectly normal post-Cup-year fluke.

This was because of the Brooks Orpik slap shot that broke his jaw. Sid missed the rest of the season. It's possible that this is also why he didn't win the Hart trophy that year. He was nominated, but it went to Alex Ovechkin. Sid didn't return to the ice until the second game of the playoffs. Ironically, the Penguins were matched up against the New York Islander, the team they had been playing when Sid broke his jaw.
Sid picked up right where he left off. He had nine points in five games against the Islanders, and six points in five games against Ottawa. When the Penguins reached the Eastern Conference final against the Boston Bruins, the offence dried up, however.
But as the season came around, it was clear that Sid was back to producing, and he was a constant on a team that saw a slew of injuries.

The injury meant that he had trouble putting any power behind his shots, which was why he was having trouble scoring goals.
He was still dominating possession, though.
