Injured Crosby to miss All-Star game @NHLdotcom

MONTREAL (AP) -Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby will miss the All-Star game because of an injured left knee.

Tampa Bay Lightning leading scorer Martin St. Louis will replace Crosby on the Eastern Conference roster, the NHL announced Thursday. The game is Sunday at the Bell Centre.

Crosby sat out last Friday's game because of the knee injury, and was struck twice on the left arm by pucks during a 2-1 loss to Carolina on Tuesday night.

Crosby received a record 1.7 million votes in fan balloting. A high ankle sprain kept him out of last year's All-Star game.

St. Louis will be making his fifth straight All-Star game appearance. He has 17 goals and 29 assists this season.
