Crosby Out Indefinitely With Concussion, Eyes Krejci Elbow

BOSTON (AP/CBS) Pittsburgh Penguins star Sidney Crosby is out indefinitely with concussion-like symptoms that he said returned after Pittsburgh’s 3-1 loss to the Boston Bruins last week.

Crosby said Monday he noticed a recurrence of the problems that sidelined him for more than 10 months following the loss to Boston, and pointed out one play in particular. Crosby said he is looking at an inadvertent elbow from Bruins forward David Krejci on the first shift as the cause of the symptoms.

“I don’t know. I know I got hit in the head there,” Crosby said on the team’s website. “I felt pretty good after that. I didn’t feel anything too major. If I had to look at one hit, yeah… If anything it was probably that one with (Krejci).”

Krejci hit Crosby under his right eye with the elbow, but the Penguins star remained in the game. He even let Krejci know he was not happy with the elbow shortly after the play.

Crosby sat out Pittsburgh’s two-game road trip following the matchup with Boston as a precaution, but said he’s noticed familiar symptoms during light workouts over the weekend.

Crosby has 12 points in eight games this season. He said there was no timetable for his return.

    Poor Baby. My only response is Matt Cooke!! Has Crosby learned how to whine and cry from Mario Lemeux??

    All right let me try this again. Poor baby. Where did Crosby learn to whine and cry, from Mario Lemieux?? The only other response to Pittsburgh is Matt Cooke. Please stop editing these posts.

    Watch the video on You Tube at:

    Krejci is fending off Crosby and positioning his body to keep the puck away from Crosby on the side boards. Krejci’s elbow comes up because he’s digging for the puck and he can no longer see Crosby because he’s behind his head!
    Oh well, i hope Crosby gets well soon because it sucks that he’s out again because whether you like Crosby or not you have to recognize that his ability is good for television and hockey.

      BTW the inadvertent hit happens at 0:03 seconds of the YT video, thank you dafoomie!

    Crosby has always though he should be dealt special treatment. It’s okay for him to occasionally place a dirty hit and of all people complaining he has go to have one of the dirtiest players of all time in Matt Cooke on hiw team. Maybe they should both go on a retreat together. What a baby!
