Crosby to miss next two games after taking a “hard hit” versus Bruins

28 Comments

Somewhat concerning news out of Pittsburgh — Sidney Crosby will be staying home as the Penguins head out on a two-game road trip to Philadelphia (Thursday) and Long Island (Saturday).

“Sidney took a hard hit during our game against Boston Monday night and wasn’t feeling 100 percent,” Penguins GM Ray Shero said via the team’s website. “He saw Dr. Micky Collins of UPMC today and took an ImPACT test, which showed no problems. However, we all think it’s best that he sits out the next two games as a precaution.”

Presumably the collision between Crosby and teammate Chris Kunitz is the “hit” Shero is referring to.

That’s all the news we’ve got at this point. We’ll pass along any more details as they emerge, but don’t expect the Pens to be talking about this much.
