Crosby back tonight

For hockey fans around the world, the wait is over: Sidney Crosby will suit up tonight for the Pittsburgh Penguins. Crosby suffered a concussion in the middle of last season – a particularly severe concussion which affected his vestibular system, the part of the brain that affects movement and stability, thus creating an extended layoff. Now the endless speculating will begin: will he be as good a player as he was? At the time of his injury Crosby was playing the best hockey of his career, and still finished 18th in league scoring despite missing 41 of 82 games. The Penguins play the New York Islanders tonight, and here in Newfoundland the game will be broadcast on CBC at 8.
