Steve Sullivan is facing his former team the first time this season after being traded from the Phoenix Coyotes. That's the story in Newark for the evening, but a bigger story is brewing in Pittsburgh: Sidney Crosby has been cleared to practice.
Paul Martin and James Neal practiced today and, as mentioned yesterday, should be ready to go Saturday. Both Brooks Orpik and Joe Vitale remained in Pittsburgh with lower-body injuries.
Two more games. Let's finish strong.
