The game off that Sidney Crosby (Benson) took to rest his troubled ankle was obviously not enough. The Penguins and Crosby announced that the superstar centre will take yet another week off from play, which should equate to three of the team's last eleven games.
The Penguins are currently 12 points clear of 9th spot in the East, which is very favourable for the team and Crosby to get back to 100%. But on the other hand, teams who are counting on Sid the Kid to earn them points will desperately miss the superstar. Benson currently sits two points behind John B. in the Sherpa's Draft and Crosby's points were going to be key to jump into the fifth place position, if not higher.
