Sidney Crosby wouldn't miss a trip to Western Canada, even if he almost certainly won't play.
Crosby expects to accompany the Pittsburgh Penguins on their season-opening three-game road swing next week, despite not being far enough along in his concussion rehabilitation to play. Crosby, who last played Jan. 5, still hasn't been cleared for contact during practice -- a necessary step before he can resume his career.
Because Crosby would miss two practices and three game-day skates if he doesn't make the trip, he is expected to travel unless his doctors decide they want him to continue his rehabilitation in Pittsburgh.
