The Return of the Kid, Monday on CBC

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.

    It will be on Versus also. Sorry Bruins-Habs fans

    Wrong move versus. Habs and bruins is more interesting and will be a great played game. The islanders are not going to make this a good game. Can’t believe this …..

    • Ryan says:

      Absolutely the right move. Crosby’s return is a bigger draw in the US than one of the few nationally televised Habs games of the season, Montreal is not an exciting team this year, and even if the Pens falter, there’s a ready-made storyline of Tavares upstaging Crosby for his return. But most importantly, it’ll get more eyeballs.
