Sidney Crosby Bloodied After Taking Puck To The Face

The Pittsburgh Penguins nation held their collective breath during tonight’s Penguins and New York Islanders game.  Sidney Crosby ended up receiving a puck to the face off of  a puck shot by New York Islanders defenseman Dylan Reese.  Crosby has been back only for a few games as he has been recovering from concussion symptoms most of the year.

ESPN reports:

Crosby stayed down on his stomach for about a minute before gathering himself and getting back up on his skates. He then skated off toward the tunnel leading to the dressing room. He returned to the bench with 10:13 left in the period, and was back on the ice moments later.

Pittsburgh can exhale now.
