Crosby hurt

Pittsburgh Penguins center Sidney Crosby suffered a high ankle sprain during the first period of Friday’s game vs. the Tampa Bay Lightning and will not return. Crosby will be re-evaluated Saturday by team doctors.
It may not sound like much, but high ankle sprains can be really tricky for players to come back from. It all depends on the severity of the injury, something I'm sure we'll know tomorrow.

Crosby's own fault. He was looking around when he was sliding towards the wall. Not even that high of speed. Have he braced himself nothing would have happened.

Braced himself with his ankles, maybe?

Sprains happen even when a person steps off a curb. It wasn't anybody's fault.

Doc Anonymous is right. Crosby should have been smart enough to spin and go head-first into the boards.

It might help to look at what you're going to hit and when. Just look at what Sidney does just before he hits the wall?

Maybe looking for a ref at that point was the best choice, I dunno.

Docs usually come into picture after the injury.
