Crosby Back in the Lineup


Sidney Crosby will be in the Pittsburgh lineup on Tuesday when the NHL club faces Minnesota.

The Penguins Captain hasn't played since undergoing abdominal surgery on Nov. 14.

Crosby had been dealing with a core injury before aggravating it against Chicago on Nov. 9.

He had five goals and 12 assists in 17 games with Pittsburgh before going on injured reserve.

Pittsburgh is 18-6-4 since Crosby's last appearance on Nov. 9, tied for the second-best mark in the league during that span.
