The Pens are in Denver and will be facing the Colorado Avalanche tonight. Here is your game preview. Cole Harbour and stuff. The Avs are 10 points out of the 2nd WC spot. Yipes. []

After Monday's trades, the Pens players reacted to the loss and gain of teammates, including Beau Bennett, who lived with Bortuzzo and roomed with Despres on the road. Everyone is excited for return of the Reverend. []

The Rev returns to Pittsburgh with more confidence, and is happy to be back in the place he kept in touch with over the years. A nice interview with Seth Rorabaugh. [PPG]

Bad, really bad news. Christian Ehrhoff's concussion-like symptoms have returned, and he's again back to day-to-day. Can we get a competent medical team in place? Pretty please, with sugar on top. [PPG]

Ian Cole and Ben Lovejoy will have to adjust quickly to new system and new partners, and bring some toughness while they're at it. [PPG]

It turns out Derrick Pouliot was reassigned to the AHL and re-called back right away. That way he remains eligible for the AHL playoffs, but with Ehrhoff out, he's going to get his playing time here. [WBS Penguins]

Malkin, Crosby and Letang all see Marc-Andre Fleury as the Penguins MVP this season. It would be kind of nice if the rest of the NHL were able to see that as well. [Globe & Mail]

It was a nice start for Simon Despres with the Ducks last night, recording an assist, 5 hits and a +3 in more than 20 minutes of ice time. Sometimes a new start is all it takes. Go get 'em, kiddo. [OC Register]

Last night was a pretty bizarre one in Florida. Roberto Luongo left for the hospital after the 1st period with an upper body injury but was forced to return after Al Montoya was injured even worse in the 3rd. Goalie coach sat as backup. [Sportsnet]
