Pittsburgh Penguins star Sidney Crosby is practicing with the team Saturday after exiting Game 5 of their first-round playoff matchup against the New York Rangers with an injury Wednesday. Crosby sat out of Game 6 and was diagnosed with a concussion, a source confirmed to The Athletic on Friday.
Pittsburgh lost Game 5 and went on to suffer another loss in Game 6, leaving the series tied 3-3.
Crosby, who has sustained at least three concussions in his career, has missed 108 regular-season games and one playoff game because of head injuries in the past. Over 69 games during the regular season, Crosby notched 31 goals and 84 points. During the playoffs, Crosby has two goals and seven assists.
Penguins goalie Tristan Jarry is also practicing fully with the team Saturday. Jarry has been skating for nearly a week and has been facing shots in practice the past few days. He is more than four weeks removed from breaking a bone in his foot against the Islanders.
Louis Domingue has been starting in Jarry’s place, but has allowed four or more goals in four of his five starts in this series, including the game-winner in the final 90 seconds Friday night.
The winner-take-all Game 7 will be held Sunday at 7 p.m. ET in New York.
