“Sidney took a hard hit during our game against Boston Monday night and wasn’t feeling 100 percent,” Penguins General Manager Ray Shero said. “He saw Dr. Micky Collins of UPMC today and took an ImPACT test, which showed no problems. However, we all think it’s best that he sits out the next two games as a precaution.”

Both games Crosby will miss are on the road, at the Philadelphia Flyers and New York Islanders.

Crosby has looked anything but rusty since returning from his lengthy absence due to post-concussion syndrome. He put up 12 points in his first eight games, exhibiting the quickness and tenacity that has always typified his game.

His absence is being called a precautionary measure, but it's still reasonable to be worried about this development.

Having missed almost a year dealing with the last pair of hits to his head, a return to press box for Crosby after only eight games just shows how worried Penguins management remains about his condition.
