Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby returns to action Thursday night -- and two nations will be watching.

Crosby, who has appeared in just eight games this season and last played on Dec. 5, is scheduled to be in uniform Thursday when the Pens visit the New York Rangers at Madison Square Garden as part of the NHL's eight-game schedule. Opening faceoff is scheduled for 7 p.m. ET and can be seen on the NBC Sports Network in the United States and TSN2 in Canada.

The Rangers (44-18-7) lead the Pens by just six points in the race for the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference. Pittsburgh (42-21-5) has won nine in a row.

Three other games also get under way at 7 ET -- the New Jersey Devils host the Colorado Avalanche, while the Philadelphia Flyers visit the Islanders. Also, the St. Louis Blues face the Carolina Hurricanes at the RBC Center.

At 7:30 p.m. ET, the Tampa Bay Lightning host the reeling Toronto Maple Leafs at the Tampa Bay Times Forum. The Leafs are 1-8-1 in their last 10 games. Meanwhile, the Florida Panthers face the Boston Bruins at the BankAtlantic Center.

In a huge Western Conference showdown, the Phoenix Coyotes meet the Calgary Flames at Scotiabank Saddledome at 9 p.m. ET. Those teams entered Wednesday's action separated by just one point in the standings with 12 games remaining.

In the final game of the evening, the San Jose Sharks will attempt to keep pace in the heated playoff race as they take on the Nashville Predators at HP Pavilion. That game is set to begin at 10:30 p.m. ET.
Quote of the Day

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
