PITTSBURGH (AP) - Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby remains bothered by a concussion and will not resume practicing or playing until he is symptom-free.

Crosby was held out of the pregame skate before the Penguins' Saturday night contest against Minnesota, the second straight game he has missed. The NHL's leading scorer also isn't expected to play Monday against Boston or Wednesday at Montreal.

Crosby absorbed a blind side hit to the head from the Capitals' David Steckel during the Winter Classic outdoor game on Jan. 1, but initially felt only neck soreness. He began feeling worse Wednesday, but played that night against Tampa Bay and was driven into the boards headfirst by the Lightning's Victor Hedman.
