Pittsburgh gets Crosby, Letang back tonight


The Penguins are getting a pair of key reinforcements back for Saturday’s tilt in Minnesota.

Sidney Crosby, who missed the final game prior to the break, and Kris Letang — out since Dec. 9 with an upper-body ailment — will draw back in, per head coach Mike Sullivan.

Crosby took this morning’s skate centering David Perron and Chris Kunitz, while Letang was in a defensive pairing alongside Olli Maatta.

“I feel good,” Crosby said, per the Pens website. “To get basically a week (off) has been good. I’m happy with the way I felt this morning.

“It’s just a matter of trusting that you can go out there and take hits. It’s different from a morning skate, but you have to be confident about it. I felt good today. That’s a good thing.”
