Avs-Pens to be shown on VERSUS, TSN2
They won't have Sidney Crosby in their lineup, but all eyes will be on the Pittsburgh Penguins on Tuesday night.
They won't have Sidney Crosby in their lineup, but all eyes will be on the Pittsburgh Penguins on Tuesday night.

Pittsburgh, which is off to a solid 10-4-3 start without its captain, will host the Colorado Avalanche at the Consol Energy Center in a game that can be seen on VERSUS in the United States and TSN2 in Canada. Opening faceoff is slated for 7:30 p.m. ET.

Colorado has won only three of its last 10 games but sits at the .500 mark at 8-8-1. Joe Sacco's club is 6-2-1 on the road this season.

There was some speculation that Crosby would make his season debut Tuesday night, but Pens coach Dan Bylsma put a stop to it Monday. Crosby hasn't played since January, when he suffered a concussion.

"We stated we will let (the media) know when he is playing," Bylsma said. "It's not going to be a secret. I'm not telling anything else other than there is no change in his status."

The Colorado-Pittsburgh showdown is one of nine games on the NHL schedule Tuesday night.
Quote of the Day

You get the right the whistles at the right times, you can leave him out there. He's a beast when it comes to being on the ice. I thought [Saturday] he was a big man. That first period, he did that lateral cut and it was like three bowling pins bounced off him. There's not too many guys that can do that.
