Kane says Luongo still great
Despite scoring his first career hat trick in a seven-goal outburst against Canucks goalie Roberto Luongo two years ago, Patrick Kane didn't bite on a reporter's question about Luongo looking like "the old Luongo" while allowing six goals in a 7-2 loss on Tuesday night.

In fact, Kane went the other direction and heaped a bunch of praise on Luongo -- who helped Team Canada beat Kane and Team USA in overtime of the gold medal game in the 2010 Winter Olympics.

"You look at all of our goals (on Tuesday), there's really none that you can blame on him to be honest with you," Kane said. "We've still got to worry about him because he's such a great goaltender, but hopefully(we'll) just keep getting some traffic, some shots and just keep taking the puck to the net. Hopefully we'll get some luck. He's still a great goaltender. You've got to give him that."
Quote of the Day

That's today's game. That's one of the things you have to deal with when you're a championship team. Guys are going to earn more money based on their performance and what they've achieved, [and] deservedly so. [Saad] falls into that category.
