Report- Crosby Out, Malkin Doubtful For ASG

via Rob Rossi of Chipped Ice at the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review,

...multiple sources confirmed early this morning that C SIDNEY CROSBY(concussion) will definately miss the NHL All-Star Game next Sunday at Carolina. Also, C EVGENI MALKIN is very unlikely to play.

Crosby has missed eight straight games with a concussion. His remaining symptoms include headache and neck soreness.

Malkin has missed the last two games because of a re-aggravated left knee injury. The knee has been a troublesome issue dating to October.

The Penguins are expected to make an official annoucement about Crosby’s All-Star status over the comign days. No final decision has been made about Malkin, though the team believes his chances of playing are slim

Dammit.

I’m glad they’re both skipping it to get better, but…selfishly I wish they were going to be playing so I could watch them.
