Crosby surprises Little Penguins by joining practice

PITTSBURGH -- Sidney Crosby did not practice on Wednesday, at least not in the conventional sense.

Crosby, along with Pittsburgh Penguins goalie Marc-Andre Fleury, forwards Nick Spaling and Zach Sill, and defenseman Robert Bortuzzo, surprised 40 children involved with the Little Penguins by taking the ice during a unique practice that took place after the NHL players had their turn.

Crosby, the Penguins, Dick's Sporting Goods and Reebok fund the Little Penguins, a youth hockey program that provides free head-to-toe equipment to 1,000 young players each year.

The Penguins captain did not participate in Pittsburgh's Wednesday practice because of a maintenance day, Penguins coach Mike Johnston said, but decided to show for the kids.

"It's a great program," Crosby said. "Obviously, there are a lot of volunteers who help out, but it's nice to get a few players out here today and these kids were hopefully enjoying themselves, getting the opportunity to play, like all of us did, at the same age. So it was a nice little time here and hopefully they had fun."

WINNIPEG -- The Winnipeg Jets could be without left wing Mathieu Perreault until the end of the regular season.

Jets coach Paul Maurice announced Wednesday that Perreault has a significant lower-body injury. The Jets placed Perreault on injured reserve and recalled forward Carl Klingberg from St. John's of the American Hockey League.

"We would be hopeful that [Perreault] would return before the end of the regular season," Maurice said, adding that if Perreault did return before the Stanley Cup Playoffs, it would not be much sooner.

The Chicago Blackhawks continue their longest homestand of the season when the Detroit Red Wings come to United Center in this week's edition of Wednesday Night Rivalry (7:30 p.n. ET; NBCSN, TVA Sports).

Chicago is 2-0-2 at the halfway point of an eight-game homestand, but the Blackhawks are coming off back-to-back victories against the New Jersey Devils (3-1) and Pittsburgh Penguins (2-1 in a shootout). Overall, they are 4-0-2 in their past six games and are trying to make up ground on the Nashville Predators and St. Louis Blues, the top two teams in the Central Division.

Detroit is 0-2-1 in its past three games and is coming off a 2-0 home loss to the Montreal Canadiens on Monday. That was one of only two games for the Red Wings at Joe Louis Arena this month; the visit to Chicago begins a six-game trip that will include a swing through California.

The Chicago Blackhawks have won back-to-back games and are four points shy of second place in the Central Division. The Detroit Red Wings have lost three in a row and are about to begin a grueling six-game road trip against Western Conference teams.

Chicago (35-18-4) has earned points in six straight games, including a 2-1 shootout victory against the Pittsburgh Penguins on Sunday. The Red Wings have scored five goals over their three-game skid. Detroit (31-14-10), which is coming off a 2-0 loss against the Montreal Canadiens on Monday, trail Montreal by six points in the Atlantic Division and the second-place Tampa Bay Lightning by four.

The Blackhawks, who are 2-0-2 in the first half of their eight-game homestand, will try to continue their winning ways when they host the Red Wings in the first game of a Wednesday Night Rivalry doubleheader at United Center (7:30 p.m. ET; NBCSN, TVA Sports).

In the nightcap, the Los Angeles Kings will face the Colorado Avalanche at Pepsi Center (NBCSN, 10 p.m. ET).

The surge has allowed the Kings to pull within two points of the San Jose Sharks for the second wild-card spot in the West. The Avalanche (24-22-11) will be seeking their third straight win after defeating the Arizona Coyotes 5-2 on Monday.

Iginla believes Avalanche heading in right direction

Wednesday, 02.18.2015 / 3:00 AM / NHL Insider

Rick Sadowski  -  NHL.com Correspondent

DENVER -- It's been a disappointing season for the Colorado Avalanche, to say the least. They're last in the Central Division following a surprising first-place finish a year ago and have plenty of work to do to qualify for the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

But veteran forward Jarome Iginla, who signed a three-year, $16 million contract as a free agent July 1, said he has no regrets about joining the Avalanche and hasn't given up hope about climbing back into the playoff picture.

The Avalanche (24-22-11) trail the Vancouver Canucks by seven points for the second wild-card spot in the Western Conference and figure they'll need 36 points in the final 25 games to make it.

"Hopefully we light it up the rest of the year," Iginla, 37, told NHL.com. "We're not writing the year off yet. We're still looking to have a great finish."
