Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby is scheduled to play in his first preseason game Wednesday when the Penguins play the Detroit Red Wings (7:30 p.m. ET, NHLN-US). The Penguins announced their lineup on their website early Wednesday.
It will be Crosby's first game since the Penguins were eliminated by the New York Rangers in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Second Round.Crosby missed time early in training camp with an undisclosed injury unrelated to the right wrist issues he had treatment for during the summer. He had been expected to play Monday against the Minnesota Wild but was pulled from the lineup to attend the funeral of his grandmother.
