GLENDALE, Ariz. - Penguins head coach Mike Sullivan said that Sidney Crosby will not play today against the Arizona Coyotes.
"I'm not going to get into how the decision was made," Sullivan said. "We're going to watch Sid, he's going to go through the rehab process. Part of it is practicing with the team, part of it isn't. And then we're going to try to make decisions as best we can that's in the best interest of Sid and the team. That's what we did."
Crosby, who had a strong day of practice on Saturday, has missed the last 27 games since undergoing surgery to repair a core muscle injury on Nov. 14. He last played on Nov. 9 against Chicago.
