PITTSBURGH -- Jaromir Jagr and Sidney Crosby are from different eras and different countries, and the style of play when each entered the NHL was wildly disparate, as well.What they have in common is the Pittsburgh Penguins.Jagr, who is 44 and is 25 years removed from his NHL debut, starred on the first two Penguins teams to win the Stanley Cup. Crosby, who is 29 and is 11 years removed from his NHL debut, starred on the last two Penguins teams to win the Stanley Cup.On Tuesday night, the crisscrossing careers of two of the NHLs most dominant offensive players of the last quarter-century could converge again at PPG Paints Arena.Crosby, who missed the first six Penguins games with a concussion, took part in a full practice Monday -- his first since the season began. He might make his season debut against Jagrs Florida Panthers.It was just good to be back on the ice with the guys. Its not easy watching, Crosby said. To be out there was nice and, hopefully, (it was) a good step.Pittsburgh coach Mike Sullivan, whose team is coming off a 5-1 loss at Nashville on Saturday, no doubt would welcome back the Conn Smythe Trophy winner, although he didnt say for certain if Crosby would play.The Penguins (3-2-1) likely will make sure Crosby experiences no setbacks after going through a full practice before he gets the go-ahead to play.Sid is day-to-day, Sullivan said Monday. Well take tomorrow as it comes.There always seems to be another tomorrow for Jagr, who won the Stanley Cup with the Penguins during his first two NHL seasons in 1991 and 1992 -- back when goals were much more plentiful than when Crosby debuted in 2005. He has been gone from Pittsburgh for 15 years -- can it possibly be that long -- yet he still is more closely associated with the Penguins than he is with any of his other seven NHL teams.Jagr played 806 regular-season games with Pittsburgh; he has appeared in no more than 277 games with any other team.My (Pittsburgh) fans are already dead or old, Jagr told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. There are new fans. Half of them probably dont even know I played there.Jagr was booed for years -- though never with venom that accompanies some once-popular players departures from a city --after he was seen as orchestrating his departure from what was then a cash-strapped Penguins franchise in 2001.However, he remains an icon in the city, even if it is difficult to spot the once-prevalent No. 68 Jagr jerseys in the stands.Jagr always enjoys playing in Pittsburgh, no matter what jersey he wears; he has 24 goals and 22 assists in 52 career games against the Penguins. (Plus 439 goals and 640 assists in 806 games with them.)Last season, Jagrs 27 goals were the most of any player his age in NHL history. Last week, he joined Wayne Gretzky and Gordie Howe as the only NHL players to score 750 goals in their careers.When he turns 45 on Feb. 15, Jagr will become -- barring injury -- only the third player to ever play at that age, joining Howe and Chris Chelios.Jagr has one goal and two assists in five games to help Florida get off to a 3-1-1 start.Stanley Cup-winning goalie Matt Murray (broken left hand) also resumed practicing with Pittsburgh for the first time this season on Monday.Im getting closer and closer every day, he said.Marc-Andre Fleury has started in net in all six Penguins games to date.

At a news conference Tuesday where it was thought that the fiery Schallibaum may be shown the door after a dismal finish to the Major League Soccer season, team president Joey Saputo said no decision has been made on whether the Swiss Volcano will be back in 2014.Coach Byron Scott has been fired by the Los Angeles Lakers after the worst two seasons in their history. Los Angeles finished with the NBAs second-worst record at 17-65 this season, losing four more games than in their previous franchise-worst season in 2014-15. We would like to thank Byron for his hard work, dedication and loyalty over the last two years but have decided it is in the best interest of the organisation to make a change at this time, general manager Mitch Kupchak.Scott won three NBA titles as the shooting guard for the Showtime Lakers of the 1980s, playing alongside Magic Johnson, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and James Worthy on some of the greatest teams in league history.Scott admitted last week that he expected to leave the team.This is my dream job, and obviously you want the opportunity to turn it all around, he said.dddddddddddd But I understand the business of basketball, and its all about wins and losses.Scott received praise from Kupchak last week for his handling of the final months of Kobe Bryants career.Bryant was Scotts team-mate during his rookie season with the Lakers 20 years ago. Bryant scored 60 points in his final game April 13, a win over Utah.But the Lakers struggled to play competent defence or to put together coherent game plans over the past two seasons with a roster of youngsters and veterans.The Lakers are now looking for their fifth head coach since Phil Jackson left in 2011. Mike Brown and Mike DAntoni were fired before Scott, with interim coach Bernie Bickerstaff also getting a short run.
