ST. LOUIS -- Penguins center Sidney Crosby will play tonight against the St. Louis Blues.

"Good, ready," Crosby said when asked how he felt after the Penguins morning skate.

"I'm gonna play."

Crosby left Thursday's game against the Phoenix Coyotes with an undisclosed injury and never returned. The Penguins did not practice Friday, giving Crosby some time to recover.

"A little bit," Crosby said. "Just good enough to play."

The Penguins have recalled forward Janne Pesonen from the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins of the AHL.

Defenseman Mark Eaton will be a healthy scratch for tonight's game. Forward Ruslan Fedotanko has an undisclosed injury and will be day to day.

Defensemen Hal Gill and Rob Scuderi will serve as the alternate captains for the month of November.
