Crosby in Calif. to see neurological spine specialist
Sidney Crosby's next stop on his path back to playing has taken him to California.

The Pittsburgh Penguins announced Saturday that Crosby arrived in California on Friday to see Dr. Robert S. Bray, a neurological spine specialist, as he attempts to come back from concussion-like symptoms.

"Sidney is meeting with some of the top specialists in the country as he continues his recovery," Ray Shero, the Penguins' general manager, said in the news release.

Crosby hasn't played since Dec. 5. He had played in eight games, scoring 12 points, after returning from a concussion. He began to experience symptoms again after a contest against the Boston Bruins and has now missed 39 games this season.

The Penguins' captain traveled with the team to Washington and Florida and skated with the team for two days before going to Atlanta to see Dr. Ted Carrick, a specialist in chiropractic neurology. The Penguins said Crosby spent several days with Dr. Carrick before heading to California to visit with Dr. Bray, who is founding director and CEO of the D.I.S.C. Sports and Spine Center. He worked with the U.S. Olympic team at the 2010 Olympic Games in Vancouver.
