Matt Cooke continues his rehabilitation scoring two goals on the night. He has amassed only 30 minutes of penalties this season - a far cry from past years.
The game also saw the return of Kris Letang who has himself being suffering from a concussion.
All in all, it was a grand night for Pittsburgh who have now won 10 straight games.
GO, PENS, GO!
Feschuk: Sidney Crosby returns to NHL after 100-day concussion setback - thestar.com
Yes, pittsburg has been playing topnotch hockey for a while now, and with crosby and letang back they
should be even stronger.
Glad to see crosby back, but i'm not too impressed with the strategy that is so visible, as it seems he
could have played a month or more ago, but they strategically waited till there is just enough games
left in the season to get him into playoff shape, he is very fresh and won't have any of the fatigue
that many players suffer from who have played all season, then the gruelling trip thru the playoffs.
Letang is extremely important to the pens, top D man, very important to the team.
Jonathan Toews is still suffering from concussion, and apparantly has had a setback, which will keep
him out of the lineup even longer, but the team is starting to play better, and hopefully will find
a way to do well without him, not sure if he will be back for playoffs or not
Chris Pronger won't be back this season at all for the phillys, his wife reported to the team that he
is still suffering from post concussion symptoms, and not doing all that well.
He has been out almost all season.
Andy McDonald was injured 'again', shoulder injury, out indefinitely for the blues, one of their top
players, hope he can return for playoffs, they will miss him.
All of the teams still fighting for a playoff spot are all bunched up, and we won't know for a while
who is in and who is out.
I'm hoping for winnipeg to get back into the 8th spot, but right now, doesn't look good, but if they have lots of home games, it could happen.

He is playing so well, he has a big job on his hands trying to lead that team up the standings. I
expected them to do much better this season, but grabner didn't do nearly as well as last season, maybe
that was a one season wonder for him, but there is lots of good players on that team, so I wonder what
their problem really is.
They can look so good one day, and so pitiful the next.
