Preview: Wild take on Crosby-less Penguins

Though the Penguins have been slammed with illness and injuries throughout the early part of the season, they might be getting a key player back for the game against the Wild in forward Bryan Rust. Rust finished last season third on the team in goals with 22, and scored a goal in one of his two starts this year before getting knocked out of a game against the Florida Penguins on October 14th with a lower-body injury.
