Penguins carry on without Sidney Crosby vs. Flyers

The Pittsburgh Penguins will be facing the same challenge Thursday when they play the second of three consecutive home games against the Philadelphia Flyers.

The Penguins once again will be without team captain Sidney Crosby, who joined assistant coach Todd Reirden in being placed on the NHL's COVID-19 protocol list on Tuesday.

It's unclear how long Crosby will be out -- the league prohibits the distribution of information on whether a player has tested positive or is in protocol as a precaution based on contact with someone who has -- but he was ruled out by coach Mike Sullivan for Thursday's game.
