Last time Sidney Crosby captured the hockey world’s attention with a comeback, it was against the struggling New York Islanders and a green goalie in Anders Nilsson. Tonight’s match is wildly different as the Pittsburgh Penguins hope to advance on the East and Atlantic-leading New York Rangers at Madison Square Garden.
Crosby spoke about his expectations – particularly a lack of nervousness about taking checks – as he returns in the middle of what should be an intense game (which you can watch on NBC Sports Network tonight).This video is no longer available. Click here to watch more NBC Sports videos!
