Sid is finally back #87 Four points in one game, pretty impressive. Not only was yesterday a great day for Penguin fans but it was a great day for the sport of hockey. Love him or hate him Crosby is perhaps the best player in the world. Nobody can deny that he has an unbelievable amount of talent. During his absence the Pens have looked pretty good. They showed that they have depth and can still light the lamp, but winning will be so much easier with number 87 back on the ice and his skills will make the games more interesting to watch. Even though they played well without him and got closer as a team let's not return to that situation ever again.
In all of the Crosby hype (which he fully deserves) some other big news was lost. Zbynek Michalek has returned to the ice after his injury and Fleury got a shutout. Now that Sid is back the Pens have Crosby, Malkin, and Staal available (sounds weird. When's the last time that happened?) and once Lovejoy comes back the Penguins will have a fully healthy team for the first time since god knows when. Stanley cup champions this year? I think so
