Sidney Crosby said he has gone old school in his efforts to stay in shape during the coronavirus pandemic, a routine that includes pushups and grueling sessions on a stationary bike.

The Pittsburgh Penguins center is not engaging in fancy gymnastics at his home in suburban Pittsburgh like some other NHL players are posting on social media. Nor is he peppering the dryer with pucks like he did for years while practicing his shot at the one in the basement of his childhood home in Cole Harbour, Nova Scotia. 

"Nothing that creative," the Penguins captain said with a chuckle during a video conference set up by the NHL on Thursday.

Like many NHL players, Crosby is attempting to find ways to stay ready for whenever the season resumes. It was paused March 12 due to concerns surrounding the coronavirus, and four days later players were instructed to go home and self-quarantine, which Crosby has been doing.
