Sidney Crosby is skating again, hoping for second return


Sidney Crosby’s absence from the 2012 NHL All-Star Game might seem deafening to some, but he’s not giving up on the 2011-12 campaign altogether.

ESPN’s Craig Custance reports that Crosby’s been skating “pretty much” all week as he hopes to make a second comeback this season. Custance reports that he did some skating in both Atlanta and Los Angeles as he does a Carmen Sandiego tour of specialists.

Of course, there’s the inevitable caveat: he still doesn’t have a timetable for a return.

No other details were revealed as far as his progress, so we’ll just have to settle for that little nugget for now.
