Cleary to be evaluated; Abdelkader can return

Detroit Red Wings forward Daniel Cleary will be evaluated Friday morning before his status for Game 6 that night against the Anaheim Ducks is determined, coach Mike Babcock told the Detroit News on Thursday.

Cleary was injured late in the second period of Game 5 on Wednesday when he was hit into the boards by Anaheim's Daniel Winnik. Cleary was helped off the ice but returned to play in the third period.

“I’m sore,” Cleary said after the game. “My whole left side was sore -- shoulder, hand, ribs, neck, head. I didn't see him coming at all.”

The Red Wings face elimination, trailing the best-of-7 Western Conference Quarterfinal 3-2 after a 3-2 overtime loss in Game 5.

Jones profile part of ESPN show

Seth Jones rapidly is becoming a cross-over star.

ESPN has a feature planned on Jones, NHL Central Scouting's top-rated North American skater in its final rankings, planned Tuesday on its "E:60" show.

The 6-foot-3.5, 205-pound defenseman, in his first season with the Portland Winterhawks of Western Hockey League, has five goals, eight assists and a plus-11 rating in 17 games as he's helped Portland reach the WHL finals, with a shot at a spot in the Memorial Cup a possibility. This comes after he had 56 points and a plus-46 rating in 61 regular-season games, and helped the United States win the gold medal at the 2013 IIHF World Junior Championship.

Jones also has a famous father -- Popeye Jones was an NBA power forward for 11 seasons and currently works as an assistant coach for the Brooklyn Nets.

Crosby ready for rough road greeting in Game 3

Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby returns to the site of his last road game, but this time the New York Islanders are a playoff team surrounded by fans who haven't seen a postseason game in person in six years.

After after the overwhelming positive reaction Crosby received when he returned to action in front of the home folks of Pittsburgh in Game 2 on Friday, you can expect an equally loud show of non-support in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals on Sunday (noon, NBC).

"That's the playoffs," Crosby said Saturday after practice at Nassau Coliseum. "I think you expect emotion, you expect the opposing team to feed off the crowd, and I don't think that's any different anywhere. They'll be excited and it'll be up to us to make sure to control that.

"Kind of everything gets magnified a little bit when you're on the road, every hit feels like a big one and every chance seems like a big one. So you have to be able to block all that out and just play the game."
