Pittsburgh Penguins star and reigning NHL MVP Sidney Crosby practiced Friday, a day after the team announced he would be held out of the early portion of training camp as a precaution for an unspecified minor injury.
Cleared to play without a plastic apparatus protecting his lower face for the first time since returning from a broken jaw, Sidney Crosby said he'll need a few days to adjust.
It appears he'll get just that.
The Pittsburgh Penguins will begin their quest for a Stanley Cup without Sidney Crosby. The star player said Wednesday his broken jaw will keep him out of Pittsburgh's playoff opener against the New York Islanders on Wednesday night.
The Pittsburgh Penguins' run at a record-breaking streak is over. Playing without injured star Sidney Crosby, the Penguins fell to the Buffalo Sabres 4-1 to end their 15-game winning streak Tuesday night.
