Not good news about Penguins Sidney Crosby

And a day after I wrote about the organization’s silence on Crosby and Letang, they come through with an update, a small one but an update.  Though I have to say that this is not quite the news that anyone was hoping for.  Coach Bylsma said that Crosby while doing light workouts is still having […]
