Pittsburgh Penguins superstar Sidney Crosby will play in Sunday's decisive Game 7 against the New York Rangers.

Crosby was knocked out of Game 5 of the Penguins' first-round playoff series after taking a high hit to the head area from Rangers defenseman Jacob Trouba.

Penguins head coach Mike Sullivan said Crosby suffered an upper-body injury, and the center was ruled out of Game 6. The Athletic's Rob Rossi reported that Crosby had a concussion.

At the time of the injury, the Penguins were up 3-1 in the series and 2-0 in Game 5, but the momentum shifted when Crosby went down, as the Rangers came back to win Game 5 by a 5-3 score.
