Cape Breton Post - - Sports -

PITTS­BURGH - Sid­ney Crosby walked around the Pitts­burgh Pen­guins prac­tice fa­cil­ity on Tues­day, try­ing to en­cour­age his team­mates as they pre­pared to go for­ward in their in­creas­ingly caus­tic play­off se­ries against Wash­ing­ton with­out their cap­tain and the game’s most in­dis­pens­able player.

The Pitts­burgh star is out for Wednesday’s Game 4 while re­cov­er­ing from yet an­other con­cus­sion, this one com­ing from be­ing cross-checked in the head by Cap­i­tals de­fence­man Matt Niska­nen in the first pe­riod of Wash­ing­ton’s 3-2 over­time vic­tory on Mon­day night. Pen­guins coach Mike Sul­li­van said Crosby will be eval­u­ated on a daily ba­sis go­ing for­ward. There is no timetable for the two-time MVP’s re­turn.
