Penguins fans must temper their excitement today, as Sidney Crosby said that he didn’t meet with his team of doctors to gain clearance for contact today. This doesn’t mean it’s a setback, but it’s not a big step forward, either.
Oct 11, 2011, 5:26 PM EDT

Oct 11, 2011, 11:33 AM EDT
Sidney Crosby will reportedly meet with his team of doctors this morning with the goal of being cleared for contact. If that happens, he’ll be on the fast track to getting back into NHL games.

Marc Methot didn’t have to answer for his questionable hit on Henrik Sedin, but his next meeting with the Canucks shouldn’t be very pleasant. That being said, the incident raises some concern about Vancouver’s ability to protect their MVP-caliber twins.

Oct 11, 2011, 12:20 AM EDT
It’s unclear if the Sharks will get either Martin Havlat or Antti Niemi back in time for their second game of the regular season on Friday. On the bright side, both seem like they’re inching closer to their returns.

Tomas Vokoun didn’t sugarcoat his lousy debut with the Capitals, saying that his teammates “literally won tonight without goaltending.”
Oct 10, 2011, 10:46 PM EDT
It was an awful night for Tomas Vokoun and a bad one for the Capitals’ top scorers, but pluggers like Jason Chimera and Troy Brouwer saved the day. The Lightning shouldn’t be pleased with their play either, though.
