Sid appears to be Okay; Is Day-to-day

We can breathe a little easier, Pens fans. It appears as though our local hockey god, Sidney Crosby, is going to be okay after suffering some sort of leg injury last night against the Capitals. While there is still no word about exactly what type of injury it was or the exact severity of it, Crosby is expected to only miss practice today and potentially the game tomorrow against Anaheim, but after that should be able to return to the lineup. There will be no devastating high ankle sprain to derail his season like we saw a year ago.

I don't have to tell you how good it is to hear that number 87 will return to the Pens lineup shortly, as with the team's season very much in limbo, we need our best players to be at the peak of their powers, and that starts with El Capitan.
