{allcanada} Sidney Crosby practices with Penguins


CRANBERRY, Pa. -- Pittsburgh Penguins center Sidney Crosby practiced Friday for the first time since sustaining a concussion during Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Second Round against the Washington Capitals on Monday.

He had skated on his own at UPMC Lemieux Sports Complex on Thursday.

Crosby was injured at 5:24 of the first period of Game 3 when he was cross-checked in the head by Capitals defenseman Matt Niskanen. He did not play in the Penguins' 3-2 win in Game 4 on Wednesday. The Penguins lead the best-of-7 series 3-1.

His status for Game 5 at Verizon Center in Washington on Saturday (7:15 p.m. ET; NBC, CBC, SN, TVA Sports) is unknown. Penguins coach Mike Sullivan previously had classified Crosby as day to day.

Crosby has 11 points (four goals, seven assists) in eight games during the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

After missing the first six games of the regular season because of a concussion, Crosby led the NHL with 44 goals. His 89 points were tied with Chicago Blackhawks forward Patrick Kane for second, 11 points behind Edmonton Oilers forward Connor McDavid (100).
