Video: Gauging expectations for Sidney Crosby’s comeback

Mar 13, 2012, 8:30 PM EST

As you must know by now, Sidney Crosby will make his long-awaited return to the Pittsburgh Penguins’ lineup against the New York Rangers on Thursday night. (You’ll be able to watch it live on NBC Sports Network, by the way.) It’s a big game even beyond that with serious implications regarding the Atlantic Division title race, but you can be forgiven if your eyes are fixed on Crosby more than the standings.

With that – and his bombastic previous 2011-12 return – in mind, it might be tough to keep expectations in check. Mike Milbury and Keith Jones broke down what exactly we should (and shouldn’t) look forward to seeing from the biggest star in the sport.

    The biggest thing to look forward to is that he will be standing the whole game, unable to sit down because Gary Bettman is stuck in his ass. We might even see Milbury get a roughing penalty for trying to push his way in there too.
