From the Point Too
Entries with the tag: crosbywatch
Sidney Crosby’s comeback is finally upon us, as he will skate in his first game in almost a year this evening against the New York Islanders. The interesting thing is that this comeback isn’t without precedent here in Pittsburgh…in fact, when it comes to the Penguins it was something of the norm during Mario Lemieux’s time in the league. I remember being in the crowd at the Civic Arena with my “Mario’s Back” sign, the nervous anticipation building as we all waited for the “big guy” to make yet another triumphant return.
Depending on your point of view, #CrosbyWatch lives to fight another few days, or it dies with Dan Bylsma’s announcement this afternoon that the Penguins’ captain has been ruled out for this weekend’s games against the Stars and Hurricanes.
