Sidney Crosby has enjoyed better games, but none were more important than Monday’s 5-0 win over the New York Islanders.
Back in the lineup for the first time in 10 months, Crosby scored twice and assisted on two more goals in his first game back from a concussion suffered last season. No doubt it was a triumphant return. But now Crosby faces the daunting task of getting ready to do it again, remaining healthy and returning to the rarified air atop the hockey talent pool.
“I expect to be back there eventually,” Crosby told Sam Kasan of the team’s web site before the game. “I don’t know how long it’s going to take. I think the main thing is to get more and more comfortable each game. If I do that then I think I can get back there.”
But those issues will be addressed in the days to come. Monday night, Crosby, the Pens and their fans got to enjoy it all again.
