Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby will miss tonight’s series opener against the New York Islanders.
“[Doctor] said everything looks good, he just wasn’t prepared to clear me to play …I’ll make sure I’m ready when the time comes”
This is a blow to Pens fans – but the team is ready to roll without him.
“We’ve been playing and preparing with or without Sidney Crosby in our lineup. We’ve practiced without. We’re ready to go.”
Game 1 in Pittsburgh tonight at 7:30 p.m.
