Report: Crosby considering surgery for lingering sports hernia

  Report: Crosby considering surgery for lingering sports hernia Pittsburgh Penguins superstar Sidney Crosby is mulling over his treatment options, which include surgery, for a sports hernia that has been bothering him since training camp, sources told The Athletic's Rob Rossi. Crosby aggravated the hernia during Saturday's contest against the Chicago Blackhawks, Rossi reports. The Penguins captain left in the third period and didn't return.

Head coach Mike Sullivan announced defenseman Kris Letang will return to the lineup after missing the last eight games with a lower-body injury, according to NHL.com's Wes Crosby.

Letang will be a welcome addition as the Pens continue to play without captain Sidney Crosby, who underwent surgery to repair a core muscle injury and was given a six-week recovery timeline on Nov. 14. Pittsburgh is also without forward Nick Bjugstad and right-handed D-man Justin Schultz.

Rookie defenseman John Marino has been one of the team's unsung heroes this season, logging nearly 22 minutes per game and tallying six points during Letang's absence.

Injuries have plagued Letang throughout his career, but he's been one of the league's most productive blue-liners when healthy. The 32-year-old has 12 points in 15 games this season.

Detroit Red Wings drop 11th straight in loss to Pittsburgh Penguins, 5-3 .
Dylan Larkin had a goal and an assist at LCA, but the Penguins used an empty net goal to prevail, 5-3, leaving the Wings 0-9-2 in their last 11 games. It was a familiar sight much of the night — the Wings were scored on early, were scored on again. They kept working and had something to celebrate when Robby Fabbri scored his seventh goal of the season. But as has been the trend, the Wings were not able to build on their momentum and instead their opponent grabbed it right back.
