Crosby skates, Penguins test 3 for mumps
PITTSBURGH (AP) Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby returned from a bout with mumps, while several teammates were tested for the virus as a precaution.
Crosby worked out Wednesday for the first time after missing three games over the weekend. He could return to the lineup as early as Thursday night when the Penguins face Colorado.
General manager Jim Rutherford said Crosby is "doing well," and he'll let Crosby and coach Mike Johnston decide the timetable for a possible return.
