Mending Crosby misses practice
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.
