Penguins’ Crosby passes concussion test

Might play Game 5

Sidney Crosby passed his concussion baseline test and is a game-time decision for the Pittsburgh Penguins in Game 5 against the Washington Capitals.

Coach Mike Sullivan said Saturday that Crosby had a few good days. Winger Conor Sheary is also a game-time decision after passing a baseline test.

Crosby took a hit to the head in Game 3 Monday in Pittsburgh and missed Game 4 Wednesday. He skated in full gear Thursday and took part in a full-contact practice Friday.

Crosby missed the optional morning skate, but Sullivan says the captain has improved enough to make him a possibility for Game 5.

Crosby has two goals and two assists in parts of three games in this series. Pittsburgh leads 3-1.
