Penguins captain Sidney Crosby announced today he is experiencing concussion-like symptoms and will be sidelined indefinitely. He did not practice today.
Crosby said, "I did my ImPACT test and it went pretty good. That was a good sign. It's much different than previously going through that stuff. That was encouraging. I skated following day after with exertion. I just didn't feel right. After talking with everyone I figured it was better to be cautious and not take any chances. That's where I'm at right now."
