Pittsburgh captain Sidney Crosby will miss the Penguins’ Thursday night game against the Tampa Bay Lightning due to an upper-body injury.
Crosby missed practice Wednesday and could be sidelined for a week, coach Mike Sullivan said.
Sullivan declined to offer specifics about the star center’s injury, but said it is not concussion-related.
Crosby, 31, has eight goals and 11 assists in 16 games this season for the Penguins, who have lost five of their last six games.
