Sidney Crosby, the star of Pittsburgh Penguins leaves the game with a lower-body injury

Pittsburgh Penguins are already riddled with many injuries into the NHL season and now they have to lose their key player Sidney Crosby too during their Saturday night win against the Chicago Blackhawks following a lower-body injury.

The leading scorer of the team, Sidney Crosby had to leave the game during the third period.

Mike Sullivan, the coach of Penguins said, “Sidney Crosby is currently being evaluated as we are speaking of it.  We will only get additional info on Monday.”

In this match, Crosby had only been involved in 2 plays and that also both included defenseman of Blackhawks Eric. Sidney Crosby blocked the shot from Eric and then takes it off on his ankle.

He then appeared to have skated awkwardly as he tried to attack the check of Eric but then Eric’s leg made contact with him.

Crosby, so far in the season has scored 17 points in the last 17 games. He led the team with his season-high of 100 goals.
