Lack of NHL experience not a concern for Julien's match-up line
Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby did not play in Thursday's team scrimmage, but did skate on his own earlier in the day, according to head coach Mike Sullivan.
"He was unfit to participate in today's intra-squad game, but he did skate on his own this morning," Sullivan told the media.
Crosby left last Saturday's team scrimmage with an undisclosed ailment. He skated on his own before practice on Wednesday before skating again on Thursday.
The 32-year-old has 16 goals and 31 assists over 41 games this season with the Penguins, his 15th in Pittsburgh.
