Thursday, 01.15.2015 / 2:18 PM / News

Robby Stanley - NHL.com Correspondent

NASHVILLE -- Nashville Predators goaltender Pekka Rinne will be out 3-5 weeks with a sprained knee he sustained in the game Tuesday against the Vancouver Canucks, the team announced Thursday.

Rinne will be re-evaluated after the All-Star break, which ends Jan. 26.

Rinne leads the NHL with 29 wins and was named to the 2015 Honda NHL All-Star Game after missing 51 games last season with a hip infection.

"It doesn't change anything as far as we go," Predators coach Peter Laviolette said. "I mean it's tough to lose players. We've been on a little streak here where we've lost some players with [Eric] Nystrom being out, [Ryan] Ellis being out, [Taylor] Beck and [Matt] Cullen were out for a little bit. Nothing really changes as far as the game plan goes."

Penguins find new spot for Rust's clothes

Wednesday, 01.14.2015 / 2:22 PM / News

PittsburghPenguins.com

Before Sidney Crosby stepped onto the ice for Wednesday’s practice, he looked up – and immediately began shaking his head and laughing.

Many of his teammates had the same reaction as they noticed what was dangling from the rafters of CONSOL Energy Center: rookie Bryan Rust’s street clothes. The 22-year-old forward’s coat, shirt, jeans and shoes were all hanging from a hook that had been lowered from the ceiling, with his nickname taped across the back of his jacket.

Unlike his teammates, Rust didn’t notice right away. After he got on the ice, Rust be-bopped around for a few minutes, just skating in circles without a care in the world before he finally realized he had been the victim of a prank.

“I looked up and knew it was mine because I’m pretty sure I’m the only one with those shoes on the team,” laughed Rust, in his first professional season after four years at Notre Dame. “I was kind of just skating around laughing. It’s just one of those things where you’re a rookie, so things are going to happen. It’s all in good fun.”

Quote of the Day

I don't think it's really truly going to sink in until we drop the puck, to be honest. I know there's going to be a lot of smoke and mirrors with the media attention and all that. We came [Monday] and it was sort of a light day to get things organized. We just want to focus in on the business aspect, the game itself. That's what we're preparing to do. Get these next couple of days out of the way and it's game on.

— Lightning captain Steven Stamkos on playing in his first Stanley Cup Final
