Roberts' Rollercoaster Recovery persists

It seems like every time bad news is heard about Gary Roberts having a setback, the next day he's talking about how he's skating again. From the Trib:

"I had a little setback last week in New York, so I basically took a week off," Roberts said. He's hoping to return prior to the postseason. "It'll really depend on how I do in this next week," Roberts said. "I'd like to get a game in before the playoffs."

This is a big deal because most of the Penguins core players have exactly 5 games of NHL playoff experience. And while that is a taste of it, having such a veteran force and presence will go a long way on and off the ice for the still young team.

One thing is for sure, Pittsburgh's medical staff must be awesome at treating high ankle sprains.
