Good morning one and all,

The Pens are in Tampa, where they square off against the Bolts in game 3 tonight.

Jon Cooper expects Ben Bishop back in net at some point during the series, though it's hard to know when. [Tampa Bay Times]

Mike Sullivan backed struggling Conor Sheary, who was stapled to the bench in the third period of a tie game on Monday. [PPG]

Excellent insight, though unsurprising, into how Mike Sullivan tapped into Sidney Crosby's emotions to get him going again. [PPG]

Glove-gate is in full conspiracy mode, though dismissed by the Pens. [Trib]

As Marc-Andre Fleury idly sits on the bench, the conversation shifts from whether he should see ice to where he will play in the future. Eric Duhatschek thinks he will be an excellent fit as a transitional netminder for the Flames. [Sportsnet]

Brent Burns was at his absolute best last night as the Sharks shut out the Blues in a dominant fashion, especially with a man advantage. Tie series. [SI]

Brian Campbell will be a UFA this offseason, so what exactly is the value of the 36-year-old defenseman? [Today's Slapshot]

Corey Perry is such hot garbage. Canada got trounced by Finland at the Worlds yesterday, but mostly people are talking about Perry kneeing Patrik Laine in a typical dirtbag fashion. [Sportsnet]

Alex Ovechkin has put up another 50-goal season and been excellent in the playoffs, yet other teams will contend for the Cup. The best goal scorer of our time will soon be 31, and GM Brian MacLellan knows it's on him to keep Ovi's Cup window open by putting the right team around him. [AP]

Miracle on Ice goaltender Jim Craig is auctioning off his mementos from the big game, including game jersey, his gold medal and the flag that was wrapped around his shoulder, which if I had a million bucks I'd buy. [Lelands]

This will warm your heart as you watch a boy do a play-by-play for his blind dad. They are currently guests of the Blues and even Doc Emrick said the kid did so well. [NBC Sports]
