from Red Fisher of the Montreal Gazette,
The Penguins now stand No. 2 overall in the East, seven points behind Ottawa, 2-0 losers to Tampa Bay last night - but for how long?
You don’t lose a player like Crosby without paying the price, just as the Senators are learning now that Dany Heatley is sidelined with a long-term injury.
The best Pittsburgh can hope for is that Crosby won’t be sidelined too long. The extent of the injury won’t be known for several days, but normally it’s measured in terms of weeks and even months - but you don’t need an MRI reading to understand how much Crosby is going to be missed.
He is the NHL’s golden boy. He is everything that is good about this game, but the Penguins aren’t the only losers. He sells tickets wherever the game is played, so teams in double-digit numbers are losers. Major sponsors of the game are losers.
