Trib recap from Jason Mackey

Even in a 5-1 win, it's obvious how important it is to get best play at the most important position. Marc-Andre Fleury was stellar yet again. [PPG]

Is there anything wrong with Sidney Crosby? Doesn't look to be. He's getting older and his game is evolving, suggests the latest Rob Rossi column. [Trib]

The Jordan Staal rumors are rampant and so are the opinions for and against the potential reunion. Here is a vote for. [Hockey Buzz]

Ron Francis did not address anything publicly in regards to Jordan Staal's future in Carolina, so as of now this is all speculation. [Charlotte News Observer]

Keith Yandle, Antoine Vermette, Phil Kessel, Jonathan Bernier, Dion Phaneuf, Daniel Winnik, Tyler Bozak, Jordan Eberle, Jeff Petry, Mike Green, Andrej Sekera, Jiri Tlusty, Chris Stewart, Jaromir Jagr and Marek Zidlicky are all listed as trade-deadline targets. []

Hey remember those days when the Wild were getting horrible goaltending? Devan Dubnyk has stopped the bleeding and the Wild find themselves in playoff position just like we said they should, based on their good possession play. So, who's firing Mike Yeo now? Yeah, crickets. [Star Tribune]

Nathan MacKinnon became the youngest player in Colorado Avalanche history to score a hat trick, leading his club to a 5-4 win over the Tampa Bay Lightning. [Denver Post]

Fresh off his latest suspension, Zac Rinaldo found himself on the receiving end of a Jason Chimera uppercut in another tussle, and afterwards complained he's getting a raw deal and is being punished for his reputation. He's not the sharpest tool in the shed, is he? []

Henrik Zetterberg suffered a possible head injury on Saturday. He is on their road trip but unknown when he might start skating again. Yikes. [Detroit Free Press]

Did they play the game? Your ultimate NHL GM guide. [Grantland]

Bob Mckenzie remembers The Miracle and Herb Brooks. Best read of the day. [TSN]
