Sidney Crosby injury update II - Sid will play

New, comments

 

Thanks to SteelCityKid for passing on the info:

Sid skated this morning with the team and has been named a starter on the Penguins' web site.  Whether this will stick or not is still uncertain, but I have a feeling that Janne Pesonen is waiting close by in the event that Sid will be unable to play before game time.  I also think not guaranteeing his spot in the lineup is just a formality, and we can now expect him out there since he participated in the morning skate.

The Pens' site says:

Crosby was listed as day-to-day but skated in the team's morning skate on Saturday morning and will suit up against the Blues.

My concern here: pushing him to play if he is in fact injured.  I'm not looking to see him blanked from the roster longer than he has to be due to the fact that he is stubbornly ignoring an injury.  In the event it wasn't all that serious to begin with, than kudos to Sid was sticking it out.

Plenty more to come today as we edge closer to the 8:30 pm game time.
