Good morning one and all,

The Pens host the Capitals tonight for the third time this season. We have yet to score on them. Here is the game preview. []

The power play, which feels like it's 0-for-forever (actually it's 0-for-7 games), feels like it's turning the corner. Any time now would be awesome, guys. [PPG]

The Leafs are looking for two picks (2nd and 3rd) or 2nd and a prospect for forward Daniel Winnik. [ESPN]

The Rangers are now tied with Pens in points with two games in hand, having beaten the Islanders 6-5 after being down 5-3. Didn't start good for the Rangers, but they pulled it off in the end. []

Poor Olli Jokinen. After 1200 games at center and a measly 6 playoff games, finally signs with a contender, only to get shuffled to wing. Then gets traded to the Maple Leafs. [Winnipeg Free Press]

The Florida Panthers are interested in Phil Kessel, but don't want to part with their young prospects. Well, that won't get it done. [The Score]

A beautiful remembrance of Steve Montador by Elliotte Friedman. Always a great read, but this is a special piece about a man he knew well and who he and all of us will miss. What a tragedy. [Sportsnet]

Don't forget Pens charity auction on Root Sports starts today at 6 pm. The charity bags feature, among other goodies, special-edition bobbleheads. Go and win some! []
