I'm not even a Pens or Crosby "fan", but this is great news for hockey

New York Islanders vs. Pittsburgh Penguins - Recap - November 21, 2011 - ESPN
[Sidney Crosby] scored twice and added two assists in his season debut and the Pittsburgh Penguins crushed the New York Islanders 5-0 on Monday night. Playing his first game in more than 10 months while recovering from concussion-like symptoms, Crosby appeared to be in midseason form. He scored on his third shift in spectacular fashion, weaving through the New York defense before beating Anders Nilsson with a backhand for his first goal since last December. Crosby added assists on goals by Evgeni Malkin and Brooks Orpik and capped his comeback with a second tally, a backhand that fluttered by Nilsson early in the third period to provide the final margin. Steve Sullivan also scored for the Penguins while Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 29 shots.
