VIDEO: Sidney Crosby Scores Goal On Third Shift Of Comeback Game

Everybody wondered how Sidney Crosby would look in his first game back from his concussion. Would he be the same player? Would he look sluggish? Would he be Sidney Crosby?

Well, just a few minutes into the first period, he certainly looks like he same Sid The Kid that we all know. On just his third shift of the game, Crosby streaked in on goal, shook a defender, then went backhand and top shelf over Anders Nilsson for the first goal of the game.

It's also (obviously) Crosby's first goal of the season, and it came on Pittsburgh's first shot of the game. Love him or hate him, he's just an incredible spectacle to watch. Hollywood really couldn't have written his return much better than it's gone so far tonight. Of course, there are still about 55 minutes of hockey remaining.
