Hagelin-Cullen-Kessel line really struggled with puck possession against the Panthers. Hornqvist and Kunitz keeps shooting the puck. [Chipped Ice]

Kessel's shift length ranks second on the team (tied with Malkin) behing Letang. Is that something the coaching staff worries about? Not really. [Trib]

The Pens dads trip seems to have been a total blast. It's kind of fun seeing what the guys will look like 25 years from now. [Penguins]

Local hockey TV ratings are dipping across the board. Even with a 19% drop, the Pens are in second place, behind Buffalo. [Sports Business Daily]

Mike Richards accepts his part of the blame for the breakup with Dean Lombardi and the LA Kings. [AP]

Evander Kane is the latest guy caught sleeping past practice start time and disciplined by the team. Makes you think how his time in Buffalo will turn out. [ESPN]

Well, it's officially Cup or bust in Tampa, as Steve Yzerman says he is not trading Steven Stamkos. Double-edged sword here. What would you do? [SI]

Montreal continues to find new lows and new ways to lose. It seems the team has quit on Therrien. Bergeving says he's safe from an in-season firing, but there's no way he survives the offseason, right? [Sportsnet]

Oliver Ekman-Larsson is the NHL biggest bargain, and the Yotes are sitting just a point out of the second wild card. Didn't see that coming, did we? [SI]

As NHL playoff picture is still a bit fuzzy, who are the contenders and who are the pretenders? Pens get an asterisk, and it's not wrong. [Sporting News]

For the end, Brian Domoulin is the best cook in hockey, right? He can come to my house and do the cooking whenever he wants. [Penguins]
