UNIONDALE, N.Y. (AP) -Sidney Crosby has ruled himself out for Monday night's game against the New York Islanders after skating with his teammates in the morning.
Crosby took the ice at Nassau Coliseum and stayed out well after the rest of the Penguins went off to the dressing room. He said his sprained right ankle feels better than it has in some time but that he isn't in game condition yet.
Crosby's injured ankle has forced him to miss six straight games and 27 of 30.
Although he wasn't ready to play Monday versus the also-ran Islanders, the Penguins captain wouldn't say if he would also sit out Tuesday at New Jersey in a key game against the Devils.
