Sidney Crosby leaves game with injured groin

Crosby, who leads the Penguins with 10 goals and 30 points during his second NHL season, got hurt shortly after his goal at 5:47 of the second period gave Pittsburgh a 4-1. He didn’t play in the third period “as a precautionary measure,” coach Michel Therrien said, adding he was “not concerned” about the injury.

Crosby also had an assist on Dominic Moore’s goal at 4:31 of the first period.
