After missing 40 games due to concussion-like symptoms, Penguins star Sidney Crosby will finally make his return to the ice when Pittsburgh takes on the New York Rangers.

“I feel good and the plan is to play Thursday,” he said following practice Tuesday. “I got a good practice and I’m looking forward to getting out there Thursday.”

Hopefully Crosby can remain symptom free and return to his old, dominate self. The NHL just isn’t the same without him.
