I believe the Penguins when they say that there is no set return date for Sidney Crosby, so everyone will just have to wait to see what happens here. Friday is a possibility but they probably won't give people a heads-up too far in advance to avoid a mediastorm.
Tim Connolly has another UBI, totally unrelated to his previous UBI which had nothing to do with the recurring UBI he had a few years ago. Any way you spin it, this guy is as soft as they come and can't be trusted to stay healthy. They say that he's expected to be out for 10-14 days.
Wojtek Wolski will have hernia surgery today and that is expected to shelf him for four weeks.
Some good news for the CBJs... Jeff Carter (foot) practiced yesterday and might be able to return on Thursday... my lord, do they need a lift or what?
Ilya Kovalchuk (leg) missed practice yesterday and so he's unlikely to play tonight.
A minor undisclosed injury kept Rich Peverley out of last night's game... he's day-to-day.
Cam Barker is getting close to returning from his shoulder injury, he should return tonight or shortly thereafter.
Daniel Alfredsson (concussion) has been skating on his own the past few days and is reporting that he is symptom free so he could be returning soon.
