Pittsburgh Penguins star Sidney Crosby will sit out the next two games for precautionary reasons.

Crosby collided with teammate Chris Kunitz during Monday's game against the Boston Bruins and slowly left the ice. He finished the game and later said his knee took the brunt of the blow.

Crosby was tested at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center Wednesday but passed it, Penguins general manager Ray Shero said. He did not make the trip to Philadelphia with the Flyers, however.

"(The test) showed no problems," Shero said. "However, we all think it's best that he sits out the next two games as a precaution."

Crosby has played just eight games since missing more than 10 months with a concussion. He has two goals and 10 assists this season.
