Crosby Out for Game Four; Burakovsky Reflects on Time With Otters

Rita Gibson | 12 May, 2017, 10:40

The scene brought back jarring memories. His brain foggy. His immediate future uncertain.

To this you can add: Is there anyone who has said no to Crosby except former Penguins employees? He has since been ruled out indefinitely with a concussion.

January 1, 2011 - Crosby is hit in the head by Washington's David Steckel during the Winter Classic, and is hit again in Pittsburgh's next game by Tampa Bay defenseman Victor Hedman.

"It's a tough moment for sure", Fleury said. I always stood up for him when I was here. "Hoping he feels better soon and we see him smile again". Crosby skated at the Penguins practice facility today as he recovers from a concussion.Penguins coach Mike Sullivan says Crosby is in the process of rehabbing from the injury, calling it a "day-to-day process". "We're very optimistic and we're hopeful that we'll get him back in a timely fashion".

This will be only the second time in Malkin's career that he will play a playoff game without Crosby.

With Murray injured in Game 1 of the first round, Fleury has come in and played as well as anyone could expect.

"The nature of these things is they're all very different", Sullivan said. Yes, but they should also realize that, sometimes, what goes around comes around. Even though the Capitals possession numbers are dwarfing the Penguins, their inability to produce has left them out in the cold.

Then Crosby was concussed during training camp prior to this season and missed the first six contests as a result. The Penguins took a 2-0 lead early in the second period on goals from Patric Hornqvist and playoff dynamo Jake Guentzel, who has eight goals in nine games, only to have the Capitals tie things up later in the period. They would have a commanding 3 to 1 series advantage and a chance to end the series in Washington this Saturday night. But with great defense and continued great goaltending from Fleury, the Penguins can still win this series. "And we're lucky to have depth on our team. And our top guys, I thought, weren't as good as they needed to be". The Pittsburgh Penguins have allowed three or less goals in five straight games. He will play after the league decided against holding a hearing to review the incident.

Large fire put out at Sydney's Olympic Park
Fire crews were called to the scene at 2.30pm today after reports an "administration building" was on fire. A man is in hospital after suffering smoke inhalation in a large blaze at Sydney's Olympic Park .

"I didn't play my game tonight".

"It should be nasty", Washington forward Jay Beagle said.

Washington can still alter this all-too familiar script by winning the last three games of this series, two of which would be played at Verizon Center.

The Caps can still win but they need Murphy's law to stop hitting them in some way each game.

Even without Crosby, the Penguins won't lack for star power. He notched two assists as the Penguins won, 5-0. That included stints without Crosby and others without Malkin, and Sullivan is familiar with effectively patching holes. They're dead. And the Penguins are doing the pushing, shorthanded all the same. "It looks like he's playing loose and he's a hell of a player". He's a hell of a player.

And most of all, the Penguins can't get caught up in the hysteria surrounding the Crosby injury. He's played well. I never concede to the goalie. "Obviously, in super slo-mo and in hindsight I wish I had one hand on my stick and my hands were way down, but the collision happened fast and Sid's trying to score a goal and he's getting lower and lower as it happens".

Outplay and outshoot the Penguins all you want. As good as he has been in the playoffs, he's going to have to be better. He scored two goals in a 52-second span, the first a whistling shot from the slot and the second a smooth one-time finish in front of the net. And it paid off: They're headed back to Washington with a 3-1 series lead. McDavid picks Gretzky's mind frequently.

But that's the problem - there are only seven games in this series.
