Here is TribLIVE’s Penguins page. Rob Rossi, Josh Yohe and I are covering.

UPDATE 1:11 p.m.: Some notes from this morning’s skates … Joe Vitale won’t play tonight because he’s unavailable, Dan Bylsma announced, which was striking in and of itself. Bylsma wouldn’t say who will replace him, but Tanner Glass came off the ice with most of the regulars — for a change — and spoke as if he likely will play. … If Glass plays, let that strengthen the growing notion that Jussi Jokinen is hurt. Because he probably is. … Very strong indication that Mark Eaton will replace Deryk Engelland, as I’d expressed hope would happen in the Sunday column.

Some videos I took this morning, beginning with Bylsma …

And Tomas Vokoun, also discussing the crowd factor …

And Daniel Alfredsson, on why the Senators won’t quit …

I’ll be part of WPXI-TV’s pregame show tonight, live at 6:39 p.m.
