Here is what the Pens were saying heading into their contest against Ottawa.
Wilson: "Staying close to those guys. They do a good job of give-and-gos down low. They're able to hold onto the puck down there. Staying close in the O-zone and supporting them is what I'm shooting for."
Sheary: "(Wilson) is a physical guy. He's good on the forecheck. He can get in on the forecheck. Like myself and Sid, he likes to make plays offensively. When he get the opportunity he can score. We're excited to have the opportunity to play with him."
ODDS AND ENDS
Crosby on his one-hand, backhand goal: "There wasn't much thought. You just kind of react. It's rare that that happens. It worked out. But there wasn't much thought behind it to be honest. It was a fun one to score."
Crosby on if 50 goals is on his radar: "No, tonight is on my radar."
Crosby on his new dentures: "Those teeth were ones that I lost when I got hit with a puck there a few years ago. Just did it again."
Sheary on if he can name all 14 D-men the Pens have used this season: "I could. It would take me a minute."
Corrado on his 1st game with Pens: "I took it one shift at a time to get into the game. I thought it was good, thought it was positive. You keep learning and getting better. That's my mindset."
Sullivan on the Sens: "They have a lot of structure, especially through the neutral zone. They play that 1-3-1. We have to make sure we have an element of patience with our game and don't force things that aren't there."
