Crosby resumes full-contact practice
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.
