Good morning one and all,

The Pens blew by the Red Wings and are already in Ottawa, where they play the Sens tonight. Here is tonight's game preview. []

Who needs the corsis when we can have goals instead? Excellent recap with all the goal gifs. [Penguins Sauce]

After missing 20 games, Blake Comeau returned to the Malkin line (as a left winger), and we all saw what a difference having two great lines can make. [PPG]

Grit can be great, especially when it forechecks relentlessly. That, to me, was the key takeaway from last night. Oh and every winger Rutherford brought in scored a goal. [Trib]

It's been 6-7 weeks without the two top 6 wingers. Finally the top 6 is healthy, or at least as healthy as it's going to get, so time to build off of that. [PPG]

The Pens lost Marc Arcobello on waivers. He was claimed by the Arizona Coyotes. [PPG]

Derrick Pouliot is getting comfortable with the Penguins. His arrival and play has really softened the blow of losing Maatta for the season. [Trib]

Trade updates and rumors on Daniel Winnik and Jaromir Jagr. Could and should the Penguins still be targeting upgrades at forward? [Hockey Buzz]

Recommended read of the day - a very informative article on NHL escrow, how it relates to the salary cap and what we can expect next season. [Colligan Hockey]

The Evander Kane blockbuster deal went down yesterday. With so many moving parts and contracts, trades of this magnitude are a rarity in today's NHL. [Sportsnet]

How does this mega-trade affect the McEichel sweepstakes? [USA Today]

After the big deal, are the Jets done? Not necessarily. The prospects and a pick acquired give the Jets ammo to potentially make more trades. [Canadian Press]

In light of his own youthful transgressions, Patrick Kane is glad the Blackhawks stuck with him. [Chicago Sun-Times]

The Sabres made another trade yesterday that went almost unnoticed. Jhonas Enroth was dealt to Dallas for Anders Lindback and a conditional 3rd-round pick. [Sportsnet]

The other day they assembled a team out of most overrated NHL players. Time to look at the most under-rated ones. [USA Today]

15 years after his NHL career started, last night it came to a close for Evgeni Nabokov where it all began: in San Jose. So long, Nabby. []
