Notes & Lines: Tonight Versus Colorado Avalanche

Patrick Roy and the Central Division-leading Colorado Avalanche visit Pittsburgh. It's Nathan MacKinnon versus Sidney CrosbyCole Harbour must be so excited

Sidney Crosby was named the second star of the week for last week.

Marc-Andre Fleury is 7-0 and Tim Wharnsby from CBC says he is currently at the top of the list of "contenders for the three goalkeeper spots on the Canadian Olympic team based on their play to date."

Fleury will be in net for the Penguins. Jean-Sebastien Giguere will start for the Avalanche.

On the injury front, Kris Letang is close to returning. James Neal will miss at least two more weeks.

Did you know that Chuck Kobasew used to be a member of the Avalanche? (Used to be "an Avalanche?" We're not sure how to best phrase that…) Also, Nate Guenin used to be a Penguin.
