-"But this is where it gets sticky. Kane and Toews signed the exact same deals. Is Seabrook thinking along those lines when it comes to he and Keith? After all, they were the anchors for a Stanley Cup team, made the Olympics together, and Keith openly admits he is the player he is because of his partnership with Seabrook."

-Soupy: "It's a couple different shifts in some units, and it's worked kind of well, and we're healthy with all our power-play guys out there. Hopefully we can continue it. We can take that time on the power play and not take it for granted but make it a game-changer."

Power play bounces back

-Coach Q on Kane: "We're hopeful he'll be able to play. I know he felt better today, but the same progress from yesterday to today to tomorrow should be (enough). He wants to play and hopefully he'll be able to."

-"NBC will open its coverage with a live pre-game show from Chicago's Millennium Park at noon ET, which will be followed by three regional games, starting with Washington's visit to Buffalo at 12:35 p.m. ET. At 12:40 p.m. ET the puck will drop at Madison Square Garden between the New York Rangers and Philadelphia, and Detroit and Minnesota will get underway five minutes later at 12:45 p.m. ET at Xcel Energy Center. The deliberately staggered start times gives NBC the ability to bring viewers to all three sites during intermissions, as well as bring each game's conclusion to fans across the country."
