>> The Stanley Cup playoffs don’t start until tomorrow, but the Penguins will have the big story today based on how Sidney Crosby’s visit to the oral surgeon goes this afternoon. He’s hoping to be cleared for Game 1.
All I’ll add here — and it isn’t much — is that I had a brief chat with the captain yesterday at Southpointe, and he was in good spirits … but there also was an uncertainty about him, a pensiveness.
>> Marc-Andre Fleury is a changed man, writes our Rob Rossi in a terrific piece.
>> Podcast of my thoughts on Penguins-Islanders matchup.
>> The students at Plum High School make a Penguins playoff video every year, and I dare say this one outdoes them all. Amazing coordination …
>> The Pirates lost in Milwaukee. Rob Biertempfel copies and pastes from the scene.
>> Hope to hear from you on the show today!
