MONTREAL, Canada -- Head coach Dan Bylsma told the media that captain Sidney Crosby
suffered a mild concussion that will put him out of the lineup for "about a week."
"Sidney has a mild concussion and that's the update on Sid," he said. "I have not talked to Sid about this. I just got the report through the doctors that he went home and he's got a mild concussion."
Bylsma said that Crosby would have to be "symptom-free" before returning, and that his recovery will take about a week.
When asked if Crosby showed any symptoms after the Winter Classic, he replied: "We wouldn't have thought he was OK to play (against Tampa Bay if he had symptoms). He certainly saw doctors."
