Last week Sidney Crosby went to work with doctor Ted Carrick whom he worked with prior to his comeback earlier this year.   Following his work with Carrick in Atlanta he flew out to California to meet with a neurological spine specialist Dr. Robert S. Bray.  According to the Tribune Review Crosby’s current problems are with motion and balance when he’s skating.  Dr. Bray has worked with the U.S. Olympic Hockey Team and the LA Kings and will examine Crosby and he will receive some soft tissue treatment.    General Manager Ray Shero feels that things seem to moving in the right direction with Crosby:

“I think everything went well with (Carrick),” Shero said. “Hopefully this will work out. He wants to get back to play.”

We all want him back playing.  And at least we are getting updates on Crosby’s status on a more regular basis now.
