Sidney Crosby was back on the ice Thursday, but his status for the remainder of the playoffs remains unclear.

"We just play the game", Sullivan said. His message? "The best way to make them pay is winning". "So he is in the process right now, and will continue to be, and it will continue to be a day-to-day evaluation and we'll go from there".
The Penguins played without Crosby, who is out indefinitely with a concussion sustained in Game 3. He scored twice in Game 1 and dished out a pair of assists in a blowout victory in Game 2 to give Pittsburgh control in a meeting of the longtime rivals who finished the regular season with the two best records in the National Hockey League.
Obviously a great sign for the Penguins and Crosby, but let's not forget that in 2011 Crosby was skating in April during the first round of the playoffs but unable to gain full clearance and did not participate in a game until November.
ABOUT THE CAPITALS: While a significant portion of the spotlight rests with Niskanen and his role in Crosby's concussion, fellow defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk finally saw a positive light in the playoffs with his power-play goal 3:13 into overtime on Monday.
Pittsburgh built a 2-0 lead on goals by Patric Hornqvist and Jake Guentzel, blew that by giving up quick-strike goals to Evgeny Kuznetsov and Nate Schmidt. The third was a laser by Justin Schultz on the power play just past the midway point that gave the Penguins the lead for good.

Having a skilled group that includes Crosby, Evgeni Malkin, Phil Kessel and Kris Letang certainly helped. He played one game there for the Penguins this season, but has pretty extensive experience at the position in Wilkes-Barre and his college days.
