If the Penguins are to close out the Rangers on Friday night, they’ll have to do it without Sidney Crosby.
The Pittsburgh superstar, who did not return to Game 5 of the first-round playoff series after taking a high hit from Rangers defenseman Jacob Trouba, didn’t skate with teammates during Friday’s morning skate and will not suit up for Game 6.
“Sid is in a good place,” coach Mike Sullivan told reporters on Friday morning.
The Penguins, up 3-2 in the best-of-seven series, continue to work through injuries to numerous players.
Louis Domingue is set to start in net as goalie. Starter Tristan Jarry continues to recover from an upper-body injury. Forward Rickard Rakell is considered a game-time decision after being injured in Game 1 of the series.
