Penguins star Sidney Crosby has concussion, out for Game 4 against Capitals

Niskanen will not face supplemental discipline from the National Hockey League.

Before the Penguins' Eastern Conference semifinal against the Washington Capitals, Malkin talked about being satisfied staying in the shadows while the spotlight shined on Crosby and Alexander Ovechkin. Unfortunately, right as Crosby went down, former teammate Matt Niskanen came flying in and crosschecked him in the face. Crosby was on the ice for several minutes before slowly making his way to the dressing room under his own power.

While the finish was incredible, the tension doesn't rise that high if Penguins captain Sidney Crosby isn't knocked out of the game.

"We don't have any updates on our injured guys".

That being said, Sullivan added that Malkin is going to have to bring his very best game in order to help them win.

That whack and trip sent Crosby's head on a downward trajectory toward Niskanen's wicked hit, which did result in a major penalty and game misconduct. In super slow-mo, it looks really bad.

In somewhat positive news, Sullivan said there is no lower-body injury on the play, welcome news considering the number Ovechkin did on Crosby there followed again by Niskanen knocking him later.

"I hope he's OK". I wasn't extending trying to hit him in the head.

The play happened at 5:24 of the first period Monday.

Despite the Game 3 loss, in which they rallied for two late goals to force overtime, the Penguins have a 2-1 lead and home-ice advantage in the series. His leg also bent awkwardly during the collision.

December 5, 2011_After only eight games back from his concussion, Crosby collides with Boston's David Krejci. Jesse Dougherty of the Washington Post quoted Niskanen in her article regarding Crosby's injury. "They won't announce anything today I'm sure".

It's why Fleury's concern as the defending Stanley Cup champions prepared for Wednesday's Game 4 of their increasingly caustic Eastern Conference semifinal against the Capitals wasn't so much on how Pittsburgh will survive without its most indispensable player, but Crosby's general well-being.

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

"I just think Geno's an elite player and has that ability".

"That's how we look at it", Sullivan said.

"I played seven years in Edmonton with the game's best ever (see: Gretzky)".

"It should be nasty", Washington forward Jay Beagle said.

It was a combination of blows that, among hockey fans in Pittsburgh and in the world beyond, had time standing still Monday night, if only briefly. We're proud of how our guys played last night. "Hard hits. Going after each other". They haven't lost a step with the loss of No. 1 goaltender Matt Murray, thanks to the play of Marc-Andre Fleury.

Regardless of the intention or not, the Penguins must regroup quickly against the league's top team without their captain to stand any chance in winning this series and advancing to the next round.
