Sidney Crosby in California to See Neurological Specialist

Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby traveled to California on Friday to see neurological spine specialist Dr. Robert Bray in continuation of his road to recovery from concussion-like symptoms.

“I wouldn’t call this a bad thing at all,” general manager Ray Shero said today when asked if Crosby had experienced a setback or was still recovering well.

Crosby visited Dr. Ted Carrick earlier this week. Carrick is a specialist in chiroprachtic neurology and helped Crosby work on his balance and motion.

Sid hasn’t played since December 5 and has 10 assists and 12 points in eight games this season. He has now missed 39, but continues to skate on his own.
