Sidney Crosby's return to the Pittsburgh Penguins just got even better.

A scoring change made Friday revealed Crosby earned another assist in the Pittsburgh Penguins' 5-2 win against the New York Rangers on Thursday.

Crosby had been credited with the primary assist on Chris Kunitz's goal at 3:01 of the third period. After an official review, it was discovered that Crosby also earned the primary assist on Pascal Dupuis' goal at 7:35 of the third.

On the play, Crosby re-directed Kris Letang's point shot on net, but Rangers goalie Martin Biron made the save. Dupuis, positioned to the left of the Rangers' net, scored off the rebound.

It was Crosby's first game since Dec. 5, when he began suffering a recurrence of concussion symptoms.

It was just the ninth game of the season for Crosby, but he has 2 goals and 12 assists in that span.

Quote of the Day

Your team is going to want to recapture the feeling. What they're going to have to figure out is they're going to have to rewrite the story. Because you're going to rewrite the story doesn't mean you want a different end. It's just that you're going to have to learn that there's different challenges to get there, and if you're going to try and tap the same feeling, it ain't going to happen.
