Crosby practices with Penguins, return uncertain

Crosby practices with Penguins, return uncertain

Sidney Crosby downplayed Alex Ovechkin's slash, but he declined to comment on Matt Niskanen's crosscheck in the sequence of events that led to the Penguins star's concussion. The 29-year-old superstar acknowledged that "it's not really up to me", but he hasn't ruled it out. Conor Sheary, much like Crosby, also suffered a concussion in Game 3 against the Capitals.

There's a chance the wait may be even shorter this time for Crosby, who led the league with 44 goals and has four goals and seven assists through eight playoff games.

"He's day to day", Sullivan said. "I understand the importance of making sure you're good before you come back". Crosby felt "as good as you could expect" Tuesday morning.

Further to his health, Crosby said there was no knee or other lower-body injury on the controversial play that concussed him.

Lawmakers settle on $1T plan to avoid US gov't shutdown
The deal includes $1.3 billion to extend health insurance benefits for more than 22,000 retired mine workers and their widows. Trump's request for additional immigration agents was denied and the IRS budget would be frozen at $11.6 billion.

Niskanen was given a five-minute major for cross-checking and a game misconduct.

Crosby, widely recognized as the best hockey player in the world, will provide a big lift as soon as he's back in the lineup.

With Marc-Andre Fleury playing so well, Murray can take his time getting back. If Crosby returns, the series is by no means over yet, but it would greatly diminish the likelihood of a comeback. He reserved judgment on Niskanen, a former teammate.

Still, it depends on how Crosby, 29, feels after those taking bumps and hits, which is why the team has termed him day-to-day.
