Penguins captain Crosby doubtful for playoff after hit in head

"We did that late in the game when we carried the play", Kunitz said.

After taking a hit to the head in Game 3, Sidney Crosby has been diagnosed with a concussion, per head coach Mike Sullivan. The Caps now face an important Game 4 on Wednesday as they try to even the series.

The team has also announced that Conor Sheary suffered a concussion in Game 3 after a collision with Patric Hornqvist.

Crosby was skating by Washington goaltender Braden Holtby when he turned awkwardly after being stick-checked by Alex Ovechkin.

Washington Capitals defenceman Matt Niskanen will not be further disciplined by the National Hockey League for his hit to the head of Pittsburgh captain Sidney Crosby on Monday night.

The Capitals trail the best-of-seven series 2-1. "You come to the rink, and you're a little more ready to prepare, just that kind of competitive instinct, I guess".

Oct., 10 2016 - Crosby is diagnosed with another concussion and misses the first six games of the 2016-17 season.

Hockey fans were treated to one hell of a Game 3 between the Penguins and Capitals on Monday.

Three worst Chelsea players in win v Southampton
Whether or not Costa is still a Chelsea player next season is immaterial in respect of the current campaign. The victory pushed Chelsea on to 78 points after 33 games and exerted more pressure on second-placed Spurs.

Niskanen will immediately return to action after the National Hockey League decided Tuesday to issue no further punishment for the hit.

After being tended to by the team's trainer, Crosby left the ice and did not return.

Pittsburgh's Trevor Daley got called for holding 2:40 into the extra period to put Washington on its fifth power play of the night.

Crosby had two goals and two assists in the first two games against the Capitals and 44 goals and 45 assists in the regular season.

Crosby, who was hit with high cross-check courtesy of Capitals defenseman Matt Niskanen in Monday's Game 3 loss, was at the Penguins' facility but did not participate in practice earlier Tuesday.

Capitals coach Barry Trotz has been saying all postseason that this group is different - and finally it showed. But instead, they went out and won. Considering the circumstances, I can conclude that Niskanen was not trying to target or injure the 29-year-old center.

McDonogh's Margaret Donovan, Notre Dame Prep's Keegan Barger and Severn's Brooke Robbins were named Under Armour All-Americans and will play in the 12th annual Under Armour All-America Lacrosse Game in July. It happened in a brief flash, sure, but Penguins forward Chris Kunitz saw that stretch of play as evidence that the team can still be risky minus their star. Niskanen skated to the locker room, ejected from the contest with a game misconduct.

The injury-plagued Penguins were already without top defenseman Kris Letang and starting goalie Matt Murray before the series. After a rough Game 2, this is a very good sign for him. "We're trying to make this a long series here and the physicality is key for us".
