Crosby practices with Penguins, return uncertain

Posted May 06, 2017

Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby practised Friday but the team says he's still day-to-day with a concussion.

Crosby suffered the concussion, believed to be his fourth, when he was hit in the head by Washington defenceman Matt Niskanen in Game 3 on Monday. "That's a pretty common play", Crosby said about the incident that occurred during Game 3. Game 5 is scheduled for 7:15 p.m. ET Saturday in Washington. Crosby had four points in the first two games of the series (two goals and two assists) and led the National Hockey League with 44 goals during the regular season.

While Crosby appreciates the concern about his condition given his concussion history, he stressed he's not rushing back.

"I have a lot of belief in our staff here", he told reporters. "I trust them. I trust the process you have to go through". The Penguins lead the Capitals 3-1 in the series.

"Having gone though this I'm aware of my body", Crosby said. Niskanen was given a major penalty and game misconduct for his actions, but Ovechkin wasn't penalized.

In other Penguins news, fellow forward Conor Sheary - also now sidelined with a concussion - made his return to practice today, and also took full contact. Washington coach Barry Trotz called it "a hockey play". "Whenever it's time, I'll be ready". Crosby said the collision isn't "one that happens too often", but later added "it's really tough to gauge that one".

Red Sox P Matt Barnes ejected after throwing at Manny Machado
You don't have to be a master lip-reader to figure out that he was telling Machado he did not agree with his teammate's decision. Barnes certainly sounded honest when he publicly apologized to Machado during his postgame interview in the Red Sox clubhouse.

Crosby took line rushes with wingers Jake Guentzel and Patric Hornqvist.
