Crosby suffered the injury after taking a hit from New York Rangers defenceman Jacob Trouba in the second period of Game 5, which the Penguins lost 5-3. The 34-year-old left the contest and did not return.
Following the game, Pittsburgh head coach Mike Sullivan had choice words for what he felt was a dirty play. When asked to share his thoughts, Sullivan said, “Did you see the hit? You probably have the same opinion I do.”
Fortunately for Pens fans, Crosby, who has a history of concussions, was seen skating on his own Friday morning. If New York manages to extend the series to a seventh game, there is some hope he’ll be available.
The two-time Conn Smythe Trophy winner has tallied nine points (two goals, seven assists) through the series’ first five contests.
FanDuel Sportsbook currently has the Penguins at +105 on the moneyline in Crosby’s absence.
