Return of Sir Sidney

SidneyJust in time to sell some tickets in Sunrise, Sidney Crosby returns to the Penguins lineup tonight in Tampa Bay.

Crosby has missed the past 21 games with a high ankle sprain, the Penguins surviving OK. The Pens have gone 11-6-4 with Crosby watching from the press box. Wonder if he gets the Pitt guys popcorn? I seriously doubt it.

-- Speaking of Rostislav Olesz, he gives "Semi-Pro" two thumbs up, adding those Will Ferrell fans in the house will like the preview to his new flick.

-- Also on the Pitt front: Marian Hossa will not play against the Lightning nor the Panthers. He's about a week away from coming back from a knee injury suffered in his first game wearing the black-and-gold.

-- Panthers wearing their home blues on the road once again. Guessing Florida wears white on Thursday against the Penguins...

-- We're tied at zip (PS: Akron up six on Ohio right now in a key MAC game tonight) here in Beantown. Don't wanna jinx anything, but a Florida win ties franchise record for road wins. Trivia Time: What season did Panthers win 18 on road?
