In and out of COVID protocol
Pittsburgh Penguins: Crosby has mild symptoms and Dumoulin is asymptomatic at the moment.
Pens Inside Scoop: Penguins coach Mike Sullivan on Crosby: “I’m sure he’s discouraged. He worked extremely hard to get to this point, and we were all so excited about getting him back in the fold. This puts another road block in front of it. But we’ll control what we can, and we’re hopeful that Sid will return soon.”

Kravtsov heading back to the KHL
Larry Brooks: “From what I can glean, never say never to possible reunion with Blueshirts…”
Dan Rosen: “Vitali Kravtsov wanted to go to Russia after not making the NYR final roster. NYR wants to support him, so they loaned him to Traktor of the KHL today. They’d rather he was in Hartford and he likely would’ve been recalled already. He’s open to returning after the KHL season ends.”
