From the stills, Crosby doesn't even look to his right to even realize Straka is there. Also, if look at the first still, the positioning of Marty. He makes a diagonal stride towards the puck carrier and in the path of Crosby. Why? Gomez is already about to meet the puck carrier.
There's no need for Straka to make contact with Crosby's while he is skating forward.
