Sidney Crosby will be back on the ice in game action on Monday night when the Pittsburgh Penguins take on the New York Islanders, and in advance of his first game since early January, the superstar spoke with a throng of media. Okay, maybe throng is too small a word.
Sid talked about his return, and how it's been a while since he's played a game. He's not sure how he'll play in his first game back.
It's still a process of getting back and used to things. I mean, it's not going to get any easier. It's going to be an adjustment but I think that opportunity is something that I've waited a long time for. Just really excited and just really looking forward to getting going and into that routine.
I have no idea what to expect as far as how I'll feel and things like that. I'm sure that's just something that, as the game goes on, I'm sure I'll get a better feel for that. I've been working hard over the last couple of months but it's been a long time since I've played a game. I don't really know what to expect but I'll try to give myself every chance to be ready and play the best I possibly can given the layoff here.
