Sidney Crosby will not play tonight when his Pittsburgh Penguins face the reigning Stanley Cup Champion Chicago Blackhawks.  The injury has been considered day-to-day with the young captain likely to play in their next game against the Detroit Red Wings.

Technically the injury comes to his hip flexor, which could lead to a nagging injury as the season begins.  Certainly a situation to keep your eye on but head coach Dan Blysma seems optimistic he can bounce back quickly.
