-Welcome back Dustin Jeffrey?
-The Penguins worked with Sidney Crosby, Kris Letang, Chris Kunitz, Evgeni Malkin (above, with Crosby) and James Neal on the top power-play unit yesterday.
-In a unique twist, Neal was working on the point.
-"We have four pretty good forwards and Kris Letang who is a two-time all-star. I can count. But there is always that possibility." - Matt Niskanen on potentially gaining more power-play time this season.
-"When you progress in life you go through different phases of your career. This is what I choose. (Starting) is not my biggest thing. I knew what I was choosing and I want to finish my career in a good atmosphere in a good organization and be a part of winning." - Tomas Vokoun on being the Penguins' No. 2 goaltender.
-The Penguins will bring up players from Wilkes-Barre/Scranton for Wednesday's intra-squad scrimmage. (PG+) The contest will be broadcast on ROOT Sports.
-Dan Bylsma speaks:
-The Penguins' one and only visit to Buffalo this season on Feb. 17 is already sold out.
-Wilkes-Barre/Scranton goaltenders Brad Thiessen, Jeff Zatkoff and forward Steve MacIntyre cleared waivers.

-Given his marriage to the daughter of former Steelers coach and North Carolina State linebacker Bill Cowher, new Hurricanes forward Kevin Westgarth is already familiar with the Raleigh area.
-"Right now when I step on the ice, my head is clear. That's the main thing for me. I wasn't like that before when I was still here in early November. I'm happy where I am." - Blackhawks forward and former Penguin Marian Hossa on his recovery from a concussion he suffered last postseason. The injury finished Hossa's season.
