Sidney Crosby will not be in the lineup for the Pittsburgh Penguins against the Montreal Canadiens on Thursday. He has been sent back to Pittsburgh with an upper body injury, which apparently surfaced during the game against Tampa Bay on Wednesday night.
Coach Dan Bylsma had this to say about the situation:
"When he woke up this morning, we decided he wasn't going to play tonight," Bylsma told Pittsburgh reporters. "At this point we're making sure he is healthy and ready and able to play when he does get back out there."
Crosby has 66 points in 41 games and has only missed four games in the past two and a half seasons but has had lower body injury situations earlier in his career. When we know more about the Crosby injury, we will update this stream.
