Sidney Crosby Out of Penguins Lineup
Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby will miss tonight's game against the Anaheim Ducks due to a "lower body" injury. Recent speculations suggest that it is his left knee but the Penguins are keeping a tight lid on any details surrounding the location and severity of the injury. It was a collision with Washington Capitals forward Dave Steckel on Wednesday night that is to blame.
"I don't feel comfortable enough to play," Crosby told the team's website after Friday's practice. "It didn't feel good. That was the first time I skated since it happened. No go."
Although Crosby is held high in the hockey world he has a tendency to sustain injuries that keep him off the bench for extended periods of time. Last season Crosby was out of the line up for 29 games with a high ankle sprain.
The Penguins coach Michel Therrien announced today that they will also be playing tonight with out forward Maxime Talbot and defencemen Kris Letang and Rob Scuderi due to other various injuries.
