PITTSBURGH (AP) -Pittsburgh Penguins star Sidney Crosby says he'll be sidelined another week because of a high-ankle sprain.
If Crosby stays out that long, he'll will miss a home game Sunday against Philadelphia, a road game against the New York Rangers on Tuesday and a home game Thursday against the Tampa Bay Lightning.
The Penguins are 12-6-4 without Crosby this season, who missed 21 games after hurting his right ankle in March. He came back and played three games, before missing Wednesday's 7-3 home win against Buffalo because of ankle soreness.
Marian Hossa is the likely replacement for the winger.
