Sidney Crosby reportedly is back in Pittsburgh after a European vacation and is expected to be re-evaluated by a concussion specialist in the next week or so.
Sidney Crosby reportedly is back in Pittsburgh after a European vacation and is expected to be re-evaluated by a concussion specialist in the next week or so.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported that GM Ray Shero said Crosby will see specialist Michael Collins. He still needs to be cleared before he can begin his off-season workout program.

The Penguins' captain has been sidelined since Jan. 6 when he was diagnosed with a concussion. Crosby was cleared to practice without contact in April but had to stop when he experienced headaches.

Both the Penguins and Crosby have said they expect him to be able to play next season.
Quote of the Day

I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.
