Tuesday Practice Report
The good news for the Penguins this morning is that star center Sidney Crosby is practicing. The bad news regarding Crosby
is that he’s clearly not 100%. Crosby appeared tentative throughout the practice was not getting much strength from his back legs. His shot was also lacking velocity due to his sore groin.
A team official said this morning that barring a setback Crosby will play in the season opener.
But, with Crosby already being nagged with a groin injury, there is some concern in the organization.
Malkin, Bayda not practicing
Evgeni Malkin (illness) did not practice today. Winger Ryan Bayda also missed practice. There has been no reason yet as to why Bayda missed practice. He was at the facility earlier participating in off-ice workouts.
Bubble players Paul Bissonnette, Nate Guenin, Deryk Engelland and Chris Conner are practicing.
Ryan Bayda was placed on waivers today along with Nate Guenin, Deryk Engelland and Chris Conner.
