On the injury front:
- Dion Phaneuf joined the Leafs for their road trip. Means that he will be in Pittsburgh tomorrow and that he's almost ready to join them.
- Patrick Kane sprained his knee and will be out three weeks. That really blows for the Hawks to have Hossa and Kane out.
- Joffrey Lupul has finally returned to the NHL from a million back surgeries. And he used this move in the shootout.
- Andy McDonald was kneed in the head during the Oilers/Blues game and now has an undisclosed injury.
- Evgeni Malkin suffered a knee injury and is day-to-day for the Penguins.
- Mikael Samuelsson is going to be out at least a month with a concussion.
- Ales Hemsky has a groin injury and will be out for an extended period of time. That blooooooows.
- The HBO cameras are in the 'Burgh to film the Pens for the special.
- Dave Nonis had some strong words for the Toronto Maple Leafs, telling them that this is their team and they got to make the best of it or else.
- Bill Guerin officially retired as a Pittsburgh Penguin. Link.
- PK Subban was benched for poor and selfish play. Jacques Martin thinks that he will learn from it like Carey Price did.
- Tyler Seguin will not be playing for Canada in the World Juniors. They like him too much in Boston.
