Sheary looks to be a game-time decision tomorrow night, with participating in practice giving hope that the Penguins will get a much-needed boost to close out the series against the Presidents Trophy holding Washington Capitals.
The Game 3 concussion was the fourth reported one of Crosby's career. Crosby had four points in the first two games of the series (two goals and two assists) and led the National Hockey League with 44 goals during the regular season. "I understand the importance of making sure you're good before you come back". "I trust the staff and process". Crosby felt "as good as you could expect" Tuesday morning.
"Having gone though this I'm aware of my body", Crosby said.
Niskanen was given a five-minute major for cross-checking and a game misconduct.
The two-time Stanley Cup victor has suffered a number of head and neck injuries throughout his career and missed Pittsburgh's win over the Capitals on Wednesday, a result that gave them a 3-1 lead in the series. Washington coach Barry Trotz called it "a hockey play".
Saturday Weather Outlook: Cooler With Thunderstorms
We're still looking at mostly dry conditions, but an isolated shower or storm is not out of the question. Forecasters say Friday should be mostly sunny throughout the mid-valley, with highs around 60.
With Marc-Andre Fleury playing so well, Murray can take his time getting back.
Crosby was operating in front of the net when the stick of Washington's Alex Ovechkin caused him to lose his balance.
The Penguins played without Crosby, who is out indefinitely with a concussion suffered in Game 3. He reserved judgment on Niskanen, a former teammate. Sullivan insisted the team is taking the same approach with Crosby.
When asked Friday if Crosby's recovery would be treated differently if it were the regular season and the games mattered less, Sullivan said "no" before adding that "the priority has always been on the health of our players first and foremost, and that will never change".
