QUOTABLE

Asked if his teammates would feel free to hit him in practice, Crosby said "I hope so. When a guy comes back from injury you're usually a little hesitant. That's pretty normal. I might have to do something to get them to hit me. Maybe I'll have to bump them a little bit and get them going. As close to a game situation as we can get it."

On the Pens' top rated Penalty Kill, Panthers' D Brian Campbell said "They just work so hard, they pressure you a lot. They're relentless. It's not much different than what the key is for any team. But they do it so consistently."

On Ovechkin being held scoreless through the first two games, Caps Coach Bruce Boudreau said “I think he’s got a long way to go to get to where he wants to be — to be as good as he should be. He’s our number one player, but he can be better. There’s no doubt about it.”


LAST MEETING

The Capitals won, 1-0 on February 21. Michal Neuvirth stopped 39 shots for the shutout.


INJURIES

Sidney Crosby is out with a concussion.
Brooks Orpik is out recovering from hernia surgery.
Dustin Jeffrey has been practicing but is out with a torn ACL.
For the Capitals, Michal Neuvirth is out with a lower body injury.


TONIGHT'S GORDIE HOWE HAT TRICK (for your pregame or intermission enjoyment):

Goal: Beaupre doesn't know whether to cry or wind his watch




Assist: Letang's shot gets deflected in by Sid




Fight: Lemieux vs Todd Krygier




Bonus: I'll take one of these tonight




Respect the game, Respect the other posters, keep the JuJu good, remember that pucks, like baseballs, can sometimes leave the playing surface, and most importantly, have fun!

Enjoy the game!

My knee hurts. It appears that the universe has found a place to bestow Geno's pain. So he should have a hatty since he's pain free.
