The Penguins could possibly be without their top player this weekend. In Phoenix on Thursday night, Sidney Crosby left the game with an undisclosed injury. All the buzz has speculated that the injury could be a hip problem. Nevertheless, Crosby is resting his apparent injury and it won't be until the pre-game skate before they assess his availability for the Penguins' game against St. Louis.
Crosby has enjoyed some pool success, thus far into the season. He currently sits second on Pittsburgh in points, with 13 points (3G, 10A) in 11 games. He was also the first overall pick to Chris in the Draft and was a very popular player on the Selection Sheet as well.
Anyone's guess is as good as mine and if the prognosis and assessment after the game was 'some discomfort,' I don't think he'll be out for too long. The Penguins sure couldn't afford something like that, nor could his fantasy owners.
