Penguins star Crosby returns to practice after concussion

Penguins goaltender tapes over name of former teammate on goalie mask after Sidney Crosby injury

"I feel good. You know, right now just kind of following what I'm told to do".

It is undoubtedly great news to see superstar Crosby skating and practicing again so quickly after suffering yet another concussion.

The Penguins lost in overtime without their captain as a result of Game 3, but they held on to win, 3-2, in Game 4 on Wednesday to take a commanding 3-1 series lead.

Crosby spoke for the first time since sustaining the concussion four days ago, and said he felt good during the full-contact practice. If he can't play, Saturday would mark the 115th game he has missed in his career for concussion-related issues.

Despite his return to practice, Crosby still isn't sure if he'll be in the lineup for Saturday's Game 5, though he said he wouldn't rule it out.

Crosby regularly skated during his past concussion recoveries, most notably during the 68 games he missed in the 2011 calendar year. Washington coach Barry Trotz called it "a hockey play".

While Crosby appreciates the concern about his condition given his concussion history, he stressed he's not rushing back.

"Having gone through this, I'd like to think I'm pretty aware of my body at this point", Crosby told reporters. "When I'm ready I'll be back". "I trust the staff and process".

Crosby weighed in with his opinion on Friday, and he took the high road in doing so. Crosby said the collision isn't "one that happens too often", but later added "it's really tough to gauge that one".
