CANONSBURG, Pa. - Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby has left practice early because of a sore groin, but is listed as probable for Wednesday night's home game against the New York Islanders.

Crosby's groin bothered him a few minutes into the practice and he decided to leave the ice Tuesday. Crosby did not speak with reporters after practice.

Crosby, the 2006-07 NHL scoring champion, is second in scoring with 79 points, eight points behind teammate Evgeni Malkin and two points ahead of last year's champion, Alex Ovechkin of the Washington Capitals.

Crosby had two goals and two assists as the Penguins beat the Philadelphia Flyers on Saturday, but settled for an assist - and a shoving match with Ovechkin - during a 5-2 loss in Washington on Sunday.
