Penguins star Sidney Crosby has been diagnosed with the mumps.

Crosby was under suspicion for the disease one week earlier and tested negative. However, after Crosby displayed a badly swollen face on Friday morning, Penguins physician Dr. Dharmesh Vyas and head trainer Chris Stewart believed the Penguins' captain remained a candidate for the mumps.

He was given more sophisticated tests over the weekend, and the team learned on Saturday night that Crosby had tested positive.

Crosby skated with his teammates during Friday's morning skate, during a period in which he was likely contagious. All of the Penguins have been tested for the mumps.

Vyas said there wasn't alarm on Friday morning when Crosby skated.

“It was a rapidly evolving process,” he said.

General manager Jim Rutherford said there was no cause for concern when Crosby took the ice with teammates. One side of Crosby's face was swollen on Friday morning. Vyas said that mumps patients generally suffer from swelling on both sides of the face.

“Quite frankly that decision was approved,” Rutherford said of Crosby skating on Friday. “His condition worsened after the skate. That's when I got the call from Dr. Vyas. I think it was at 5 in the afternoon. He said he could play in the game, but there certainly would be risk. That's when we said we weren't going to do that.”

Vyas said Crosby's contagious period should be over by the end of Monday. As a result, Crosby will not play on Monday against Tampa Bay. He is a candidate to return to action on Thursday against Colorado.

It's a league-wide epidemic. In addition to this, the Rangers' Derick Brassard has been diagnosed with the mumps, 2 weeks after his teammate Tanner Glass had it. It all started with the Ducks' Corey Perry getting it at the beginning of the season. The Pens played the Ducks in their opener, and Perry played in that game. The Rangers have also played the Ducks. Obviously the MMR vaccine is no longer effective. It was never 100% effective to begin with.

The league seems to think it's spreading because of the close contact between the players. If that's the case, why isn't the NFL having a similar problem?

I had the mumps when I was a kid and from what I remember, it's not a whole lot of fun.

Bennett's case has been confirmed. I swear that kid has the worst luck I have ever seen.

Because in the NFL you aren't allowed to hit anyone anymore

Fleury tested negative and is going to start tonight's game. No results as of yet for Bortuzzo and Maatta. Greiss is now being tested, prompting the team to recall Jeff Zatkoff to back up Fleury tonight.

Just mumps? Couldn't be lucky enough for it to be AIDS?

Since you want to go there...

You root for a team that has a player who played grab-ass with a male cop. Maybe Giroux should get tested for AIDS instead?

Maatta tested positive for mumps, while Bortuzzo and Greiss did not. Poor Olli. He's had a tough, tough year.

Nothing wrong with a little grab ass. Athletes are always smacking each other on the ass. It's a fetish amongst the sports community. it's not out of the ordinary.

Add Thomas Greiss and Steve Downie to the list of confirmed mumps cases, bringing the total to 5, which ties the Wild for the most in the league: http://penguins.nhl.com/club/news.htm?id=745679&navid=DL|PIT|home
