DETROIT (AP) - Henrik Zetterberg says it was disrespectful for Penguins captain Sidney Crosby not to shake hands with all of Detroit's players after Pittsburgh won the Stanley Cup.

"I think that's one thing you should do," the Red Wings' Zetterberg said as the players cleaned out their lockers at Joe Louis Arena on Monday. "I don't know why he didn't do it, it's disrespectful."

The biggest snub after Friday night's game was to Detroit captain Nicklas Lidstrom, who waited while Crosby celebrated winning the Cup with his teammates. But he finally left the ice with a few other Detroit players.

"Sidney was probably caught up in the emotions and everything," Lidstrom said, adding that Crosby would learn from the situation.
