Just one game behind were the Pittsburgh Penguins.
Somebody else can look up how many of those 40 games featured Sidney Crosby – although it’s safe to assume a lot of them, as they both came into the NHL the same year (2005-06).
Richards missed Crosby when the Penguins were in LA a few weeks ago, as the 24-year old captain was still on the shelf with concussion like symptoms.
As you’ve probably heard by now, Crosby returns tonight after a ten month layoff.
After practice today, Richards talked about what #87’s return means…
“It’s great for the league,” said Richards. “It’s like Kobe or LeBron being out for the NBA or kind of like Peyton Manning being out for the NFL. You want your best players on the ice, to not only build the game but to put on a showcase. He’s obviously the best in the game, so it will be nice to have him back on the ice.”
Several of the Penguins players appeared on MayorsManor earlier this month and shared some humorous thoughts on several of their teammates. For your convenience, those articles are linked below.
