Capitals win in OT; Penguins lose Crosby to injury

Author

03 May, 2017

Coach Mike Sullivan disclosed the severity of the injury Tuesday, one day after Crosby left in the first period of a 3-2 overtime loss after getting cross-checked in the head by Capitals defenseman Matt Niskanen.

Neither Matt Niskanen nor Alex Ovechkin will receive any discipline and we'll go on our way, comfortable in our attitude that Sidney Crosby's a star who should expect that kind of treatment.

Asked if he thought the series might turn nastier because of the Crosby injury, Trotz said he did not know what to expect between a couple of teams that already have a deep dislike for one another.

"He's very positive and we're very optimistic and we're hopeful that we'll get him back in a timely fashion", Sullivan said.

Crosby's first concussion came in January 2011 and sidelined him until November of the next season, missing 68 games in all.

Sullivan would not give his opinion on Niskanen's hit after the game.

Crosby did not return to the game and the team declined to provide any update afterwards.

The Penguins opted against trying to litigate the fallout, focusing instead on Crosby's well-being. They hung in an ugly game and scored two six-on-five goals at the end of regulation to force overtime. I caught him high. The Capitals avoided a 3-0 hole on Kevin Shattenkirk's sudden-death power-play goal, and Game 4 will be on Wednesday in Pittsburgh. Schultz tied it 48 seconds later when his blast from the point deflected off Washington's T.J. Oshie and by Holtby.

But a Crosby-sized hole would be a lot to deal with this time of year, even if the Capitals have been spotty and almost collapsed in Game 3.

"I think he's coming across, trying to score", he said. It's just hockey. It's a hockey play. The Capitals insist they'll be ready. If you are a Caps fan maybe you say he was going for the shoulder but then Crosby ducked down a little but that's all you got.

It's the news we were hoping we wouldn't hear. The league could not look at this play and see Niskanen as a reckless player who was trying to hurt the top player in the NHL.

Bobrovsky led the National Hockey League in both goals against (2.06) and save percentage (.931) as the Blue Jackets enjoyed the best season in franchise history. The rest of the game became a gong show and now the remainder of a series that should have been celebrated for the skill and talent of the players in it will now likely devolve into a down-and-dirty series of acts of vengeance.

"We've got to go to the net, we've got to look for rebounds, we have to make it tough on the goalie".
