Penguins star Crosby returns to practice after concussion

Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby is practising with the team today.

Crosby's progress has led some to wonder if he could play in Game 5 on Saturday against the Washington Capitals. He missed Game 4 on Wednesday.

The two-time league MVP was diagnosed with a concussion earlier this week and his status for Saturday's playoff game against the Washington Capitals is not clear.

Coach Mike Sullivan said Crosby remains "day-to-day" and no decision over his participation will be rushed.

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

With the Penguins up 3-1 in the series, Pittsburgh will be cautious with the health of perhaps the best player in the world.




"I felt good right from the next day until now", Crosby said. "I trust them. I trust the process you have to go through".

"Mentally, I just have to be prepared to play if I get that call", he told the Tribune-Review.

Friday Crosby took rushes with Jake Guentzel and Patric Hornqvist at the start of practice, which was the line on which he was playing before exiting in Game 3. The defenseman, who received a 5-minute major and a game misconduct for the cross-check, insisted it wasn't intentional.

Crosby weighed in with his opinion on Friday, and he took the high road in doing so. "Whenever it's time, I'll be ready".

He called the Ovechkin slash "a pretty common play" but stopped sort of classifying Niskanen's in a similar fashion.
