It seems like it was a pointed effort to discredit Rossi. Rossi has a little video on the Trib website where he and Yohe are discussing the game, and Malkin injury. Rossi said something like "we can argue semantics, but he has a concussion". It isn't the first time the Pens have been unhappy with Rossi. Last year there was something going on when he all of the sudden was not the beat writer. When the season started back up this year, I heard him on the Pens 24/7 radio show when Steve Mears was still on, and he said he was the beat writer again, and made a reference to the fact that Sid isn't mad at him as far as he could tell.
The Pens aren't exactly forthcoming with their injury reports. It makes me wonder who Rossi's sources close Malkin really are. I can't imagine any player offering information like that to Rossi. Anyone on the medical staff would be violating privacy laws.
