Stanley Cup Final

Crosby in Calgary highlights Wednesday's action

Tuesday, 01.12.2010 / 10:46 PM / Game Previews
Sidney Crosby makes only the second career visit to Calgary on Wednesday when the Pittsburgh Penguins come to the Pengrowth Saddledome for a meeting with the Flames.

Crosby didn't have a point in his first visit to Calgary, a 3-2 shootout win for the Penguins on Dec. 6, 2007. The hero that night was rookie defenseman Kris Letang, who scored the winning goal in the shootout.

The Penguins' visit to Calgary, to be shows on TSN and RDS, is one of four games on Wednesday's NHL schedule.

The action starts at 7 p.m. ET when the Vancouver Canucks visit Minnesota in a game between two Northwest Division rivals (NHL Network-U.S.). The Canucks are coming off a disappointing 3-2 home loss to Nashville on Monday that took place a couple of hours after the Wild overcame two one-goal deficits for a 4-3 victory over Pittsburgh.

At 7:30, the Washington Capitals will try to make amends for Tuesday's 7-4 loss at Tampa Bay when they visit the Florida Panthers. Florida hasn't played since a 3-0 shutout win at Ottawa on Saturday.

The Penguins and Flames face off at 9:30 p.m. ET, and the evening's final game starts a half-hour later when the Boston Bruins start a swing through California with a visit to Anaheim. Boston hasn't played since Saturday afternoon's 3-1 loss to the New York Rangers, while Ducks won all four of their games last week, including Sunday's 3-1 victory at Chicago. 




Quote of the Day

For our team, as a group, we've never been this far before, and so it's just more lessons learned, and sometimes you have to go to the school of hard knocks to find out what works and what doesn't. We've got a young group. They've played some unreal hockey here to get us this far, and we showed if we're not going to play the proper way, a really, really good hockey team is going to beat you, and that's what they did. It's a lesson learned.
