According to the Associated Press (and SI.com), Sidney Crosby will miss tonight’s game on the Isle with a groin problem. He suffered the injury over the weekend in Washington, and Sid the Kid says it hasn’t improved much since. He’s unsure as to how much he’ll play during the team’s current road trip, which includes a stop in Chicago on Friday night.
I’m not sure whether this is good news or bad news.
Ryan Whitney has also left the team for personal reasons, and won’t play this evening.
