"He had a good week of practice and is progressing, but he won't be playing this weekend. We're not keeping a secret. When he's going to play, we'll make sure we let you know." - Penguins Head Coach Dan Bylsma on the potential return of Center Sidney Crosby.

“It's a good measuring stick for us. We're trying to gauge ourselves against the league, coming into Washington and then going to Pittsburgh and Detroit.” - Stars Head Coach Glenn Gulutzan on his team's current tough three-game road trip.

That Niskanen guy is a real loser. Who'd be stupid enough to fight Crosby.

I don't read much into pre game line combos. But did disco just say Malkin was centering the fourth line?
