Mend­ing Crosby misses prac­tice

Orlando Sentinel - - SCOREBOARD -

Sid­ney Crosby did not prac­tice with the Pen­guins on Fri­day with coach Mike Sul­li­van say­ing his in­jured cap­tain was not feel­ing well, NHL.com re­ported.

Crosby, who had core mus­cle surgery Nov. 14 and has missed 26 games, is with the Pen­guins on a three-game road trip that con­tin­ued Fri­day against the Avalanche and ends Sun­day against the Coy­otes.

“Sid’s go­ing through a re­hab process, and with the na­ture of this in­jury, it’s an evolv­ing process,” Sul­li­van told the Pen­guins’ web­site. “Part of that process is in­tro­duc­ing him to the team en­vi­ron­ment. We’ll see how he re­sponds and the med­i­cal staff makes de­ci­sions ac­cord­ingly.”

Head­ing into play on Fri­day, the Pen­guins (26-12-5) are tied with the Is­lan­ders for sec­ond in the Metropoli­tan Di­vi­sion be­hind the Cap­i­tals.
