It sounds like Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby will not be suspended for slashing Ottawa Senators defenceman Marc Methot in the first period of Thursday's clash in Ottawa.

NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly says the league will not look into the Crosby slash any further, according to TSN Hockey Insider Pierre LeBrun.

The 31-year-old will be out for "weeks," according to Senators head coach Guy Boucher.

Methot sits fourth on the Senators in average ice time at just over 20 minutes per game. He owns 12 assists and a plus-13 rating in 67 games this season.
