You heard it from the Battle of Western Canada. Sidney Crosby will return before the 2011 playoffs. The Penguins do not want to say anything specific yet, but Sidney practiced today and looked more than great (check out the video below). In a recent interview with the Fan 960, Willie Mitchell stated that Sidney's next step will be to take a hit and see how he feels. If he can do this we should be able to expect him back in the lineup in 2 weeks.
