Daily Times beat writer Anthony J. SanFilippo takes you inside the locker rooms of the Philadelphia Flyers and the rest of the NHL.

An NHL source confirmed for me this morning that Pittsburgh Penguins star center Sidney Crosby will practice with his team for the first time tomorrow after missing nearly three months with concussion related problems.

Crosby has been skating on his own for the past week or so, but there has been no timetable for his return.

In a joint effort with my colleague Rob Rossi of the Pittsburgh Tribune Review, it was learned late last night that Crosby was traveling with the team on its road trip to Tampa and Ft. Lauderdale this week.

This has to be good news for Pens fans and has to give Flyers fans pause. Because the Pens were a pretty stout team without their best player and if he's well enough to play at an elite level in the playoffs, can make a potential matchup with Pittsburgh in the second or third round all the more dangerous.

Look for more of this later today and tomorrow both here and in the Pittsburgh Tribune Review at
