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

That was something I've been dreaming of, something I've told myself before the third period I was going to do ... It was an amazing feeling. It's hard to describe. I didn't believe it went in at first but when I saw all the reaction and all the fans going crazy and my teammates going crazy, it's just an unbelievable feeling. I didn't know what to do. I didn't know whether to jump or just skate and do a Theo Fleury. I don't think I'm the same caliber player he is so I couldn't do it.
