Sidney Crosby has been skating in full gear and working out at home. You can read “They have yet to set a timetable on when Sidney Crosby will return” all over the internet. It is this simple, Crosby doesn’t have a concussion, he sets his own timetable. Penguins Evgeni Malkin appeared out of the blue yesterday afternoon and announced he was playing last night, why not...

While there may have been a trade-day mix-up about where Jarome Iginla was headed, there’s no question what city he’s leaving behind.
Iginla appears to be ready to part ways with Calgary for good, as he’s put his $3.995 million two-story home with a city view on sale.
The 35-year-old Iginla spent his entire 16-year career in Calgary until right before the trade deadline this...

Clarkson said he hasn’t thought about whether tonight’s game against the Pittsburgh Penguins could be his last home game as a Devil. After facing the Penguins, the Devils close out the season Saturday afternoon against the Rangers at Madison Square Garden and Clarkson doesn’t know what will happen after that.
