Crosby re­sumes full-con­tact prac­tice

Baltimore Sun - - WORLD SERIES -

Pen­guins cap­tain Sid­ney Crosby had an ear-to-ear smile Mon­day as he made his way to the ice at the UPMC Lemieux Sports Com­plex.

Crosby was no longer wear­ing a yel­low non-con­tact jersey. Just a black one, en­abling him to re­turn to full prac­tice after be­ing out since suf­fer­ing a con­cus­sion Oct. 7.

“Go­ing out there to­day, be­ing able to go through a reg­u­lar prac­tice, it means you’re headed in the right di­rec­tion,” Crosby said. “It’s a lit­tle eas­ier to stay mo­ti­vated and stay up­beat about it.”

Crosby’s sta­tus re­mains day to day, but coach Mike Sul­li­van re­fused to rule him out for to­day’s game against the Pan­thers.

Bru­ins backup G An­ton Khu­dobin suf­fered an in­jury to his right arm dur­ing prac­tice and his sta­tus for Tuesday’s game against the Wild is un­cer­tain. Starter Tuukka Rask has been out since Oct. 20 be­cause of an undis­closed in­jury. … Hur­ri­canes LW Jeff Skin­ner (up­per body) is day to day but is likely to play Tuesday against the Red Wings, coach

Bill Peters said.
