In­jured Crosby won’t play against Rangers

The Peterborough Examiner - - SPORTS -

PITTS­BURGH — Pitts­burgh Pen­guins star Sid­ney Crosby will miss Tues­day night’s game against the Rangers be­cause of an undis­closed in­jury.

Pitts­burgh coach Mike Sul­li­van said Mon­day that Crosby will not travel with the club to New York. The Pen­guins also play Fri­day at New Jer­sey, but Sul­li­van did not ex­plic­itly say Crosby would miss both games.

The two-time Na­tional Hockey League most valu­able player left a 3-2 shootout win over Chicago on Satur­day night in the third pe­riod. Crosby got tan­gled up with Black­hawks de­fence­man Erik Gustafs­son and mo­ments later took a shot from Gustafs­son that smacked off his right foot. He then headed to the locker-room.

Sul­li­van said Crosby will con­tinue to be eval­u­ated but gave no timetable for a re­turn.

The Pen­guins are also miss­ing in­jured for­ward Patric Horn­qvist and de­fence­man Kris Le­tang.
