Isles-Penguins on Versus Wednesday
The Pittsburgh Penguins' last game before the All-Star break was a 1-0 home victory against the New York Islanders last Tuesday. Eight days later, the Isles are back at the Consol Energy Center for their final visit of the season in the Penguins' first home game after the break.

Both teams are coming off victories on Tuesday night -- New York won 4-1 at Atlanta, while the Penguins, playing without Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin, beat the Rangers 4-3 in a shootout in New York.

Versus will show the game in the United States, beginning at 7 p.m. ET.

Hockey fans in Canada will have action of their own. TSN will air the game between the Detroit Red Wings and Ottawa Senators at Scotiabank Place, which also starts at 7. A half-hour later, RDS will televise Florida's visit to Montreal.
Quote of the Day

That was something I've been dreaming of, something I've told myself before the third period I was going to do ... It was an amazing feeling. It's hard to describe. I didn't believe it went in at first but when I saw all the reaction and all the fans going crazy and my teammates going crazy, it's just an unbelievable feeling. I didn't know what to do. I didn't know whether to jump or just skate and do a Theo Fleury. I don't think I'm the same caliber player he is so I couldn't do it.
