Sidney Crosby Scores Twice In Return From Concussion

Tuesday November 22nd, 2011

Sidney Crosby wasted no time in making his mark in his first game since January, scoring on a breakaway 5:24 into the first period and adding another goal and two more assists in Pittsburgh’s 5-0 win over the New York Islanders on Monday night.

It was Crosby’s first game since early January, when he suffered hits to the head in consecutive games on Jan. 1 and Jan. 5. It was his first goal since a two-goal game on Dec. 28, 2010.

Crosby finished the game with two goals, two assists, eight shots and a plus-3 plus/minus rating in 15:23 time on ice. He was awarded the first star of the game.
