In­jured Pen­guins star Sid­ney Crosby to miss Rangers game

The Saratogian (Saratoga, NY) - - SPORTS -

PITTSBURGH (AP) >> 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 MVP left a 3-2 shootout win over Chicago on Satur­day night in the third pe­riod. Crosby got tan­gled up with Black­hawks de­fense­man 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 32-year-old Crosby has five goals and 12 as­sists in 17 games this sea­son. The Pen­guins are also miss­ing in­jured for­ward Pa­tric Horn­qvist and de­fense­man Kris Let­gan.
