Sidney Crosby has been hit in the mouth by a puck and the Pittsburgh Penguins' star captain will not return to the game against the New York Islanders.
A bloodied Crosby skated off the ice with a towel covering his mouth after Brooks Orpik's slap shot from the point deflected off a stick and hit the NHL scoring leader just 1:28 into Saturday's game.
Crosby, who immediately fell to the ice and tossed his stick in the air, did not return in the first period. Early in the second, the Penguins announced that he would not be back in the game.
Crosby has a history of concussions that have kept him out for long periods during his stellar career.
Pittsburgh was looking for its 15th straight victory, which would be two shy of the NHL record set by Mario Lemieux and the 1992-93 Penguins.
With 15 goals and 56 points, Crosby held a 10-point lead over Tampa Bay's Steven Stamkos in the NHL scoring race.

Just when everything seemed to be running smoothly in Pittsburgh (long winning streak, three new additions including Jarome Iginla), a Brooks Orpik slapper deflected off a stick and struck Sidney Crosby in the face.

It seems that every season since the Eric Fehr hit that Sidney Crosby goes down with a head injury. This time it is off of the stick of his own teammate, Brooks Orpik. It is hard to determine if the puck had been deflected, but the unsuspecting Crosby hit the ice very fast and left a trail of blood on the ice. With his concussion history, I would imagine he will miss at least the...
