The Penguins will take on the Canadiens on Tuesday, but the big news is that Sidney Crosby is back in practice, as is Jordan Staal.
The Pittsburgh Penguins are in Montreal to face the Canadiens on Tuesday night, but as interesting as that might be, there is a more interesting story emerging from Canada. According to this tweet, Sidney Crosby and Jordan Staal will both be on the ice practicing with the team before this game.
And we get word today that Crosby and Staal are back practicing with teammates in Montreal #pens— Rob Rossi (@RobRossi_Trib) February 6, 2012
No status for the game on Tuesday night, but I can't imagine Crosby will be included in the lineup after just one practice. Crosby skated before practice a few days ago, so being ready to return to practice is an important development.
Staal has been out for the last month with a knee injury.
