Chris Kunitz is out "a couple of weeks" after docs found a fracture in his foot. Rookie Scott Wilson, called up to replace Kunitz in the lineup, got hurt in his first NHL game and will be evaluated today. Oh noes. [Penguins.com]

Game Recaps of the 1-0 win:

What's the best trade the banged-up Pens can make right now? It's probably no trade at all for the time being. ($) [DK on Pittsburgh Sports]

Evgeni Malkin back to being at his best, says Rob Rossi. [Trib]

It's a lost season for Pens prospect Anton Zlobin who had shoulder surgery and will be out for the rest of the season. Shame, he had a great playoff in WBS and was showing flashes of his skill in the pros, hopefully this won't stunt his growth but it's certainly not a good step. [Citizen's Voice]

RIP Jean Beliveau, a great hockey player, classy man and inspiration for a young Mario Lemieux and tons of others throughout the years. [NHL.com]

Logan Couture left the game against the Flyers last night. [Pro Hockey Talk]

Martin Brodeur in a St. Louis Blues mask. Yep, still weird. [PHT]

SabresLatvian fans are pretty cool: Zemgus Girgensons is leading the LIG in all-star voting so far. If nothing else, he definitely has an all-star worthy name. [Puck Daddy]

Speaking of the All Star game, are these the jerseys they will wear? They look awful and gaudy, so surely they probably are what the league will go with. [Puck Daddy]
