We all know the Kafkaesque terror that comes out of playing in New Jersey. Well, someone must have given it tuberculosis because it didn't show up.
The Penguins have won 11 straight. This game had its painful little hiccups. Crosby still hasn't scored; maybe we should trade him. I mean he is kind of too pretty to hang out with the other kids:

MOST STUNNING AND OCCASIONALLY UPSETTING MOMENTS
Chris Kunitz was awarded a penalty shot early, but Brodeur definitely didn't bite on his move. Like 2 seconds later James Neal scored a goal super early on off of the faceoff. Brodeur was unable to deal with this and it was so shocking that nobody took any pictures of anything. Just a "derp" move by the press.
They did, however, capture this great Pens fans presence in NJ during warmups. We'll take it. It is a sign of things to come.
Oh wait here is a weird picture of Neal as Ko...

Pittsburgh Penguins superstar Sidney Crosby's return to the ice looked even better the following day - at least in the scoring column.

The questions surrounding the Pittsburgh Penguins are quickly being answered.
Questions such as: How good would the Penguins be if Sidney Crosby and the rest of their injured players were healthy in time for the playoffs? Will the return of Crosby to a club surging without him disrupt the mojo that had the Penguins storming toward the top of the Eastern Conference?

from Dave Lozo of NHL.com, 1 Pittsburgh (44-21-6) If you’re the type of person desperate for negative Sidney Crosby news, here you go: He has a 10-game goal drought. However, if you are that type of person, seek help. He has five points in three games since coming back Thursday.

The return of Sidney Crosby promptly ended the Rangers mini-winning streak as the Pens dropped the Rangers tonight 5-2 at Madison Square Garden. The Blue shirt’s Jekyll and Hyde play in this game ultimately was their undoing. There was a lot of positives to take away from this game as well as quite a few negatives. To the bullets…

Was there a Sidney Crosby return? I could not tell. There were seven other games besides the one that felt like it was shown on 3435 networks. Yes #87 has tons of fantasy ramifications surely but to say it was the motherload would be just inaccurate. Some will say the bigger impact in Pittsburgh may be the return of Kris Letang so take notes fantasy fans...
