Pittsburgh Penguins star Sidney Crosby left Thursday's game against Phoenix with an undisclosed injury.

Crosby played only two shifts in the third period of the Penguins' 4-1 loss to the Coyotes before leaving the ice. He did not return.

What happened to Crosby is unclear. Television replays showed Crosby skate to the Penguins bench, sit down with a grimace and try to collect himself.

Per team policy, the Penguins did not disclose details of Crosby's injury. Neither did Crosby.

"I don't even know what happened," he said after the game. "I had some discomfort. In the third period, I couldn't really do much."

Crosby finished with one shot on goal and was a minus-1 in 15:56 of ice time.

The Penguins listed him as day-to-day with an undisclosed injury. Pittsburgh's next game is at St. Louis on Saturday.
Quote of the Day

I don't know how he does it. I don't know how he gets his body parallel with the player and pulls it through his legs like that. I know he's tried it a couple times in practice and it's never worked, so how he does it in a game, it's incredible.
