Waiting Game: Sidney Crosby and Penguins teammates trying to keep busy as lockout rolls on

Sidney Crosby says he's not reading anything into the fact the ice rink at the team's practice facility has gotten a little more crowded over the last couple days.

Crosby and nearly a dozen of his Pittsburgh Penguins teammates worked out Tuesday. It's a routine Crosby has kept to since the NHL lockout started in September and he says the recent uptick in attendance doesn't mean the league's labor issues are almost over.

Defenseman Brooks Orpik and forwards James Neal and Tyler Kennedy arrived in Pittsburgh this week. Orpik says he left his offseason home near Boston because he didn't have snow tires on his car, not because he believes the NHL will soon be back in business.

Owners and players expected to get back to the bargaining table on Wednesday.
