Hockey Fan Land:
Hockey fans have been on Sidney Crosby watch for months now; rumor has it the date 11/11/11 has the potential to be extra magical for supporters in Pittsburgh and hockey fans in general. That's when Sidney Crosby could play his first game for the Pittsburgh Penguins since Jan. 5. How do you see Crosby faring in his return? I think hockey pool managers should have this date circled on the calendar. Re-activating Sidney Crosby should be very rewarding. I commend the Pittsburgh Penguins for taking this amount of time with Sid. Because of it he should be able to produce at a high level with no ill effects.It helps that Pittsburgh is first in the East, currently 8-3-2. This means Crosby has no pressure on him to make up points they may have lost without him in the lineup. He can take as much time as he needs to find his game.

Asked about the amount of contact he has had in practice the past few weeks, Sidney Crosby smiled. "Uh, three hits?" he said, then laughed. At least the Penguins captain is keeping his spirits up as he continues to work his way back from a concussion that has kept him out of games since Jan. 5.
Don't you dare hurt Washington Capitals Alexander Ovechkin's feelings by taking him out of the game in crunch time. The Washington Capitals trailed by two goals with less than half a period left on Tuesday night against the Anaheim Ducks. The Caps went on a scoring bing and put together a 5-4 comeback win in overtime. What part did Alexander Ovechkin play in the nice...

We would take John Tortorella as a head coach every day of the week. Forget last year's 24/7. Tortorella's presence in this year's 24/7 is going to win an Emmy. Here's the Thornton-Tortorella saga in 65 seconds:

It was an apologetic Joe Thornton who addressed the local media Wednesday, again saying that he wished he had chosen his words differently after the Sharks' 5-2 loss to the New York Rangers on Monday.

Can you imagine Dan Bylsma benching Sidney Crosby for the last minute of regulation with the Pens down a goal?
No, neither can I but thatâs exactly what happened Tuesday night in Washington with Alexander Ovechkin and coach Bruce Boudreau. With the Capitals down, 4-3...
