Ryan Pike: Calgary Flames defenseman Chris Tanev didn’t play at all in the third period.
- Ryan Pike: “On Michael Raffl’s goal, Chris Tanev lost his footing, slid to the side of the net, then had Raffl land on his lower body (and then fall stick-first onto his neck/head). Tanev played two shifts after this. Having a 200lb man land on your hips and/or neck on the ice would suck.”
- Rob Rossi: Sullivan on Crosby: “Sid is in a good place.”
- Emily Kaplan: Multiple sources have said that Crosby has a concussion. One of the positive signs is that he was on the ice skating yesterday morning,
Goaltender Tristan Jarry remained out.
Dan Kingerski: Penguins Jarry was on the ice for practice yesterday and was taking some shots from teammates.
Pittsburgh Penguins: Penguins coach Sullivan on Brian Boyle: “He’s being evaluated for a lower-body injury. That’s tough because he’s a good penalty killer for us. These games are hard. They are physical. When you go to 11 forwards that early on the game, it places a physical burden on the rest of the group.”
