PITTSBURGH (AP) — Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby is dealing with a lower-body injury and could miss Monday night's game against Columbus.

Coach Mike Sullivan said Sunday that Crosby is "day to day" after getting hurt during Saturday night's 2-1 loss to Carolina. Sullivan said he believes Crosby was injured in the third period.

Crosby, a two-time Hart Trophy winner, has just six goals and 16 assists in 32 games for Pittsburgh, which has dropped five straight and is 0-4 under Sullivan.

Sullivan said Crosby will be evaluated on Monday morning. The coach added Crosby will play if he's ready even though the Penguins have four days off after Monday's visit from Columbus.
