  • Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby underwent a successful core muscle injury repair today, it was announced by executive vice president and general manager Jim Rutherford.
  • The surgery was performed by Dr. William Meyers of the Vincera Institute in Philadelphia, Pa. The expected recovery time is a minimum of six weeks.
  • Crosby, 32, leads the team in scoring with 12 assists and 17 points in 17 games for the Penguins this season despite dealing with a sports hernia since training camp.
  • You always say when Crosby or Malkin go out long-term that it’s going to be a serious blow for the Penguins and then they just find ways to win.
  • Here’s another big test for a team that’s always showed resiliency over the past decade.
