Good morning one and all,

We have a weekend full of hockey and even a Stadium Series game to look forward to. Off we go.The Pens are in St. Louis where they will face the best team nobody ever talks about, the Blues. Here is your game preview. [NHL.com]

Obviously nobody here is thrilled to see them struggle like this. TK-Noodle has pulled a lot of numbers together to show how little that tends to correlate with playoff performance. [Wonder Pens]

And just as Derrick managed to bring my blood pressure down, some dude in Columbus promptly brought it back up with a quote from Dubinsky, who reportedly said that toward the end of their fight Crosby told him he was tired and his wrist was hurting. Not good. [PPG]

The Penguins power play is an ungodly mess right now. Can anyone make sense of it? Here is your recommended read of the day. [Penguins Sauce]

This happened a couple days ago, but it's worth noting that Tristan Jarry became the all-time winningest goalie in Edmonton Oil Kings history. [Edmonton Journal]

We are still in Edmonton, where new daddy Rob Klinkhammer signed a 1-year contract extension with the Oilers, and congrats and best wishes to a real good dude. [Edmonton Journal]

The Blackhawks lost to the Avalanche, but the only thing that game will ever be remnembered for will be this goal allowed by Corey Crawford. Has there even been anything close to this? Not that I can recall. [CBS Sports]

The Sharks and Kings renew their rivalry on the grand stage tonight, facing off at Levi's Stadium at 10 pm Eastern. An outdoor game in California would be a cool thing to go to. Here is a preview, streaming and all other info. [SB Nation]

The Kings are rolling into Stadium Series, back in position to earn a playoff spot. Uh-oh. Watch out for LA. [NHL.com]

San Jose is having an up-and-down season and nobody mirrors it more than Teenage Mutant Ninja Hertl. I want this kid to rebound big-time. [NHL.com]

Peter Laviolette returns to Philadelphia, from where he was unceremoniously jettisoned three games into 2013-14 season. He comes back as Jack Adams frontrunner and leading the NHL's best team through 3/4 of the season. [NJ.com]

As Steve Montador is laid to rest today in Mississauga, Ont., one last stick tap to the sweet smile and good soul. Have some tissues ready. Goodbye Monty. [The Score]

Thirty-five years ago they won against all odds. As the 1980 Miracle team reunites in Lake Placid, they remember teammate Bob Suter, whose jersey will be raised to the rafters today at the Herb Brooks Arena. [Badger Hockey]
