Crosby and Whitney Out vs. Islanders @NHLdotcom
Penguins center Sidney Crosby left the team's optional morning skate early on Wednesday with a sore groin and will not play in Pittsburgh's matchup against the New York Islanders at Mellon Arena at 7:30 p.m.

"It doesn't feel good enough to go," Crosby said. "Hopefully, it will improve."

Crosby injured his groin in Sunday's contest at Washington. He participated in the team's practice the past two days, but left Tuesday's practice at Southpointe after a few minutes on the ice.

"Sunday against Washington it was a little sore," he said. "Monday, it was pretty much the same but I was hoping it would go away. There was only so much time to practice with the new coach so I tried to get through that. It was more sore (Tuesday). It just hasn't improved a whole lot."

Crosby will be cautious with the injury and is listed as day-to-day.
