Crosby's return still on hold for Penguins @NHLdotcom

PITTSBURGH (AP) - Sidney Crosby is feeling good these days. Still, the Pittsburgh Penguins superstar isn't sure when he'll return to the ice.

Coach Dan Bylsma said Thursday afternoon Crosby will not play Friday or Saturday and that his status remains uncertain. Crosby hasn't played since being diagnosed with concussion-like symptoms in early January.

Crosby has practiced with the team since the start of training camp two months ago and was cleared for contact last month.

There has been speculation a six-day layoff between last Saturday's shootout win in Los Angeles and Friday's home game against Dallas would provide a window for the 2007 NHL MVP to be cleared to play.

Instead the wait continues. The next possible return date is Tuesday against Colorado.
