Crosby possible return on West Coast trip?
Barring no setbacks, internally, the Penguins brass continues to envision November 11th vs the Dallas Stars at home as Sidney Crosby’s likely return game to NHL action.
Crosby though could return on the road, Possibly as early as next weekend
“It’s not a situation where he’s {Sidney Crosby} coming out of retirement, ” an NHL source close to the situation told Inside Pittsburgh Sports, stressing there’s no “special” importance from Crosby’s view on returning at home, the source said.

Crosby will not play Saturday night in Toronto and has been ruled out by the team but there is a growing sense from Crosby’s camp and even inside the organization that Crosby will be ready to go either Thursday night vs San Jose or Saturday night in Los Angeles.
Following Saturday’s game vs Toronto, Pittsburgh will have four potential practices before traveling for San Jose on Wednesday afternoon.
Following this weekend, Crosby watch will be officially on.
