Sidney Crosby Injured by Matt Niskanen Cross-Check

Sidney Crosby has been diagnosed with a concussion, Pittsburgh Penguins head coach Mike Sullivan announced on Tuesday.

It was confirmed on Tuesday morning, via the Washington Post's Isabelle Khurshudyan, that Niskanen won't have a hearing with Player Safety over the hit and is likely to return to Washington's lineup for Game 4. Sullivan would not confirm whether it is a potential head injury or a lower-body injury - it seemed that Crosby's left leg twisted awkwardly as he went to the ice. "We're very optimistic and hopeful we'll have him back in a timely fashion".

Oct., 10 2016 - Crosby is diagnosed with another concussion and misses the first six games of the 2016-17 season.

The Washington Capitals held a players' only meeting after losing Game 2 on home ice, a loss which put them in a serious hole and severely compromised their hopes of winning a Stanley Cup.

"I've seen the replay", Niskanen said.

In their first-round playoff series against the Blue Jackets, they were outshot and outplayed routinely in first periods, but they weathered the storm and beat Columbus in five games.

Federal Judge Blocks Trump's Attempt to Cut Funding to Sanctuary Cities
Orrick said his ruling does not affect the administration's ability to enforce existing conditions on federal grants. The Trump administration plans to appeal the ruling from the district court, which falls under the US 9th Circuit.

However, the chances of the Penguins winning two more rounds without Crosby, Kris Letang and Matt Murray are not great. Evgeni Malkin got the first goal on a slap shot, and Justin Schultz got the second to send the game to overtime. Crosby falls down, which causes the head contact. And the late-game surge by Pittsburgh could have sunk them.

And just when it looked like the Penguins had all the momentum - both in the game and the series - there was another twist: Washington righted itself. I call bull. It's this kind of stuff that those old boys suck up like oxygen and it kills the game.

I've said it before and I will say it again.

The Penguins never gave the Capitals much of a chance in Game 2 on Saturday. The play was upheld under review, only to be overturned due to goaltender interference following a challenge by Capitals coach Barry Trotz. Pittsburgh is getting odds of-125 to win, while the Capitals are getting a money line of +105 to prevail.

"I feel like David is really built for the type of playoff hockey you have to play to go deep". Before Monday's game, he was named one of three finalists to the Hart Trophy, which is given to the NHL's most valuable player. Other times they don't. However, they also were without their top defenseman Matt Niskanen.

Despite being the better team for most of the night (and ALL of the series) the Capitals did blow a two-goal lead and things got intense.
