The Pittsburgh Penguins received a bit of a scare on Monday night during their 3-1 loss to Boston when Sidney Crosby ran into his teammate, Chris Kunitz, in the neutral zone. Crosby remained on the ice for a bit and slowly skated off in obvious pain, appearing to pay special attention to his leg.

He remained on the bench for a few shifts and eventually returned to finish the third period.

On Wednesday, the Penguins announced that their captain will miss the next two games against the Philadelphia Flyers and New York Islanders as a precaution.

Said general manager Ray Shero in a statement released by the team, "Sidney took a hard hit during our game against Boston Monday night and wasn't feeling 100 percent. 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."

Crosby, of course, returned to the lineup on Nov. 21 after missing nearly a year due to a concussion. In eight games this season he's scored two goals to go with 10 assists

Coach Bylsma has admitted that Sid had a slight headache yesterday after practice.

This has nothing to do with the Kunitz collision, Crosby got hit hard a few times against Montreal and Boston.

It could be any of the hits or a combination of all he's had since he got back.

Is he weak or a pussy? No, he had a huge brain injury and is slowly making his way back.

Unless you're a neurosurgeon at the forefront of concussion research, why would anyone take any notice of your asinine gibes?

Sidney Crosby to miss next 2 games

When I heard he was injured and out against the Flyers after a collision with a teamate, I automatically thought another concussion and that his career is over.  Even though he manages almost 2 points a game versus the Flyers, I was glad to see the video and it clearly looks like a leg problem, not a concussion issue, he is very good and fun to watch, even if I dislike him, I want to see him play for years to come.  With all that good stuff said about him, the hit did not look that bad, maybe just tweaked the knee the wrong way.  It looked like Kuniz saw Crosby and was about to poo himself if he hits him hard, he probably imagined himself being let go by the Pens after ruining Crosby's career, otherwise, he does not drop down to avoid collision.
