Crosby sidelined by sore groin
Crosby was injured Sunday in a loss to Washington and said Wednesday, "It just hasn't improved a whole lot." He practiced Monday but left Tuesday's practice after only a few minutes.
Crosby is day to day, and it is uncertain how many games he can play during Pittsburgh's five-game road trip, which begins Friday in Chicago. He has missed only one previous game to injury this season.
