Vid: Crosby Skates

Standard Spin: With all the speculation over Sidney Crosby's mysterious neck injury, it's encouraging to see that he skated Monday in what was his most vigorous workout since his setback.  According to the National Post, Penguins coach Dan Bylsma said, "I don't think he (Crosby) was at full extertion, certainly not close to contact or anything like that.  There's not a heart-rate monitor on him, but I'm sure it got up a bit."

Here's some footage of Crosby's session... it definitely looks like he's going hard here, so it's a small step in the right direction.  (1/31/12)
