Pittsburgh Penguins star Sidney Crosby returned to practice Monday, but there is still no timetable for when the former MVP will return from a neck injury.
The 24-year-old skated with his teammates in Montreal for the first time since being forced out of the lineup in early December following a brief return. He has been skating on his own in recent weeks.

In Saturday's NHL game in Boston, Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Brooks Orpik launched Boston Bruins forward Daniel Paille airborne at center ice with an awesome high-speed check.

MONTREAL, Quebec – Two steps forward, one step back.
The Penguins inched a little closer in the health department as center Jordan Staal and defenseman Simon Despres, both working through knee injuries, returned to team practice Monday at...
Good period of hockey. Paul Martin almost hit the powerball, Subban is still a dick.
The Penguins have lost seven of eight games at Prudential Center and have scored 15 goals in their past 11 trips to New Jersey.
He didn't look bad on a line with Steve Sullivan and Cal O'Reilly, even though he was playing out of position. He added a nice dimension to the No. 2 power play, as well, even though the second unit isn't exactly his natural habitat.
