Sidney Crosby did not practice for the Pittsburgh Penguins on Wednesday, one day after he was placed in NHL COVID-19 protocol and missed a 5-2 win against the Philadelphia Flyers.

"It was a challenge," Pittsburgh coach Mike Sullivan said Tuesday. "Obviously, those are difficult circumstances. They're unexpected circumstances. But as I said to the players, all we can do is focus on the game and control what we can. We tried to keep our focus on hockey and the players that were in the lineup tonight."

The Penguins practiced Wednesday, one day after canceling their morning skate because of protocol.
