Pens’ Crosby scores in sea­son de­but

Baltimore Sun - - WORLD SERIES -

Sid­ney Crosby scored in his sea­son de­but as the Pen­guins ral­lied to beat the Pan­thers 3-2 on Tues­day in Pitts­burgh.

Crosby scored on a power play and logged 18:02 on the ice to help the Pen­guins im­prove to 4-2-1. Carl Hagelin and Eric Fehr scored goals in the third pe­riod in the come-from-be­hind vic­tory.

The two-time MVP and reign­ing Conn Smythe Tro­phy win­ner had not played since sus­tain­ing a con­cus­sion in prac­tice ear­lier this month.

Crosby missed the bet­ter part of two sea­sons af­ter sus­tain­ing a con­cus­sion in Jan­uary 2011.

“Guys have had them be­fore, and it’s been a long time since I’ve had to deal with that my­self,” he said be­fore the game. “It’s not some­thing you want to hear. It’s some­thing you want to treat the right way.”

Bruins G An­ton Khu­dobin is ex­pected to miss about three weeks with an up­per-body in­jury. … League rep­re­sen­ta­tives vis­ited Pyeongchang, South Korea, to in­spect fa­cil­i­ties as it con­sid­ers let­ting play­ers play in a sixth con­sec­u­tive Win­ter Olympics.
