Pens’ Crosby hit in mouth by puck

PITTSBURGH (AP) — Penguins captain Sidney Crosby was hit in the mouth by a puck in Saturday’s game against the New York Islanders.

A bloodied Crosby skated off the ice with a towel covering his mouth after Brooks Orpik’s slap shot from the point deflected off a stick and hit the NHL scoring leader just 1:28 into Saturday’s game.

Crosby, who immediately fell to the ice and tossed his stick in the air, did not return.

Crosby has a history of concussions that have kept him out for long periods during his stellar career.

With 15 goals and 56 points, Crosby has a 10-point lead over Tampa Bay’s Steven Stamkos in the NHL scoring race.
