NHL superstar Sidney Crosby makes his highly anticipated return to the Pittsburgh Penguins line-up as they take on the New York Islanders on a special edition of CBC’S HOCKEY NIGHT IN CANADA on Monday, November 21 at 7 p.m. ET.
The veteran play-by-play team of Jim Hughson and analyst Craig Simpson will call the game from the broadcast booth with Glenn Healy providing analysis from between the benches. Ron MacLean will set the stage for the game as he hosts from the CBC’S HOCKEY NIGHT IN CANADA studio.
The Penguins’ captain has been out of the line-up since January 5, 2011, due to a concussion – a span of 61 consecutive regular-season games. The former league MVP and perennial all-star will rejoin his team at the start of a three-game home stand.
That does it.
