Pens’ Crosby plans to return Thursday

Hossa said recently he eagerly looked forward to skating alongside Crosby, the reigning NHL scoring champion and MVP.Crosby is uncertain as to the amount of time needed for that plan to work in the Penguins’ favor, but he favors playing in as many regular-season games as possible before the Stanley Cup playoffs start next month.The Penguins have only five games remaining.

“Sid and I together – that’s the plan,” Hossa said. “I can’t wait.”

“I’ve done my best watching him, done my homework so to speak,” Crosby said of Hossa. “I’ve seen some of his tendencies. We play a similar way – he’s not afraid to go into traffic, get his nose dirty.”
