Sidney Crosby Injury Update: Chris Kunitz, Pascal Dupuis Will Be Crosby's Linemates In Return

As Sidney Crosby prepares to make his return to the Penguins' active roster on Monday night against the Islanders at the Consol Energy Center, coach Dan Bylsma and his staff will have to shuffle the lines around a bit to accommodate him. KDKA's Bob Pompeani tweets the team captain will find some familiar faces on his wings.

The plan is for Crosby to skate with Kunitz and Dupuis which keeps together Malkin, Neal and Sullivan...plus re-unites Staal, Cooke, kennedy

Both Pascal Dupuis and Chris Kunitz have skated on Crosby's wings before, so that should help ease the center's transition back to the ice. Dupuis has four goals, 10 assists and is a +7 on the season. Kunitz has seven goals and four assists but is a -2.
