As a huge Pens fan I have been waiting for this day since December 6th, but as a concerned human being I also have to wonder if this is the right thing for Sidney Crosby to be doing. When he takes the ice tonight he will be on a line with Matt Cooke and Tyler Kennedy, and one can only hope that the fear of what Cooke will do to anyone that hits Sid will help keep his head safe and sound.
Not only is Sid returning to the ice but so is Kris Letang, and not a minute to soon. On February 29th Letang was hit and suffered concussion like symptoms keeping him out of 5 games.
These two key players are making their returns at just the right time, getting a few games under their belts before making a run at another Stanley Cup Championship. Here's to hoping they can both stay healthy and bring Lord Stanley's Cup back to Pittsburgh! Until then, I know I will be watching tonight.... will you?
