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.

Sean Avery reported to Connecticut to accept his demotion. The Rangers are pleased since they get cap relief, but losing that $1.9 million could eventually send the Stars below the cap floor.

David Krejci was injured during practice today and could miss the Bruins’ upcoming two-game road trip.

Expect Ottawa fans to shower Dany Heatley with boos as he faces the Senators for the second time since he demanded a trade in 2009.

Bruce Boudreau wasn’t shy about criticizing Alex Ovechkin regarding the Capitals star’s early season struggles.
Oct 11, 2011, 12:05 PM EDT
The good news for the Penguins is that Sidney Crosby might make a step in the right direction today. The bad news is that Evgeni Malkin will miss a second straight game with a “lower body injury.”

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.

The Bruins signed Rich Peverley to a three-year, $9.75 million contract extension. Get ready for a lot of “Rich” puns.

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.

Kari Lehtonen has been razor sharp so far, winning in both of his starts. Could the former second overall pick actually carry a flawed Stars team to the playoffs this season?
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.

The Devils will live and die by the play of Ilya Kovalchuk and Zach Parise this season. The two star wingers looked quite lively on Columbus Day, then.

Did holiday festivities (or worse, work) force you to miss afternoon games on Columbus Day? Check out highlights of the action here.

The Bruins’ top line of Nathan Horton, David Krejci and Milan Lucic are off to such a slow start that Claude Julien might have to split them up soon.
Oct 10, 2011, 7:31 PM EDT
Mattias Ohlund lost a step or five during the last few seasons, so maybe getting both knees scoped will help him turn things around. It’ll come at a cost, though; he’s expected to miss six to eight weeks to rehab from surgery.
Oct 10, 2011, 7:07 PM EDT
Lightning coach Guy Boucher doesn’t just want the team to remain a thorn in the Capitals’ side – he wants them to be that way in both sides.

Is the Shanahand getting a little heavy now? Many will be surprised that Pierre-Marc Bouchard has been suspended two games for what he claims was an accidental high stick on Matt Calvert.

Devan Dubnyk will be the Oilers’ opening night starter, as he beat Nikolai Khabibulin for the job. It’s going to be a long season in net either way, but Edmonton is hoping to build the large goalie up into a netminder of the future.

The Canadiens sent Blair Betts back to Philadelphia after he failed a physical.
