Sidney: Bruised, Not Broken

There was some panic in Sidneyland as Sidney suffered a bit of an injury to his hand, but it turned out to be nothing more than a bruise. Phew.


Pittsburgh Penguins centre Sidney Crosby won't miss any action after suffering a bruised hand during practice on Tuesday.

Crosby was obvious pain after he tried to grab a high pass from rookie defenceman Kris Letang with his left hand after the formal conclusion of the team's practice at Mellon Arena.

He was doubled over for several minutes and feared that he'd suffered a break in his hand.

"That's the first thing that comes to mind," Crosby told the Pittsburgh Post Gazette. "It was like, you're expecting a pass and the puck's coming at you, so you just react. I just caught it, and it stung me."

An examination by a team trainer determined it was nothing more than a bruise, and it was later confirmed by an X-ray.
OK, just how hard was that pass? Did the guy take a slapshot and Sidney thought it was a pass? Was Sidney wearing silk gloves? How does a guy hurt himself that badly trying to catch a pass? 0_o
