There’ll be plenty of storylines at play tonight when the Penguins take on the Caps at Verizon for the latest installment of NBC’s Rivalry Night series — catch the game on NBCSN, or watch online with NBCSports’s Live Extra.


The latest development is that Pens captain Sidney Crosby will return to the lineup after missing Tuesday’s win over Winnipeg with an injury, the same one that forced him out of All-Star weekend in Columbus.
