Pens back home to wrap up Caps series
PITTSBURGH (AP) - Roughly 24 hours after getting three points against the Capitals, Sidney Crosby will try to help the Eastern Conference-leading Penguins sweep a home-and-home set tonight.
The superstar center continued his role as the Capitals' nemesis Monday, scoring a goal and setting up two others to power a 3-2 victory at Washington. He set up the first of Chris Kunitz's two goals on the first shot of the game 46 seconds in, while finding the net himself just over 3 minutes later on the Penguins' third attempt on goal.
While Crosby looks to continue his tear, Ovechkin is trying to get untracked after failing to get a point for a third straight game Monday. The star right wing is also a minus-3 over that stretch, making him a career-worst minus-26 on the season. Improvement would be welcome since the Capitals have lost four of five.
Flyers look to rebound vs. New Jersey
PHILADELPHIA (AP) - The Flyers look to return to their winning ways tonight when they host the Devils, another club that's been playing well of late.
The Flyers had a three-game winning streak snapped in a 4-3 overtime loss at Toronto on Saturday, but at 7-1-1 in the last nine, they're continuing to put pressure on the Rangers for the second spot in the Metropolitan Division, sitting one point behind.
Philadelphia fell behind 2-0 just 3:38 into the game against the Maple Leafs before scoring twice in the third period, tying it on Braydon Coburn's goal with 2:32 left. The Flyers had outscored opponents 5-2 in the first period during their three consecutive victories. Kimmo Timonen scored twice for Philadelphia, which had totaled 15 goals during the win streak.
New Jersey hasn't been nearly as hot as the Flyers, but it's won four of six since the Olympic break to put it in the thick of the wild-card race.
Kilpatrick, Napier, Smith unanimous All-AAC picks
MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - Cincinnati guard Sean Kilpatrick, UConn guard Shabazz Napier and Louisville guard Russ Smith all are unanimous selections for the 2014 American Athletic Conference's all-league team.
The American announced the team as voted on by coaches Tuesday.
Louisville forward Montrezl Harrell and SMU guard Nic Moore are the other members of the first-team.
The conference will announce the American's player of the year Wednesday with that award likely going to either Kilpatrick, Napier or Smith.
Kilpatrick is the league's leading scorer averaging 20.9 points a game as he helped Cincinnati win a share of the league's title. Napier is second in scoring and assists, while Smith helped Louisville go 26-5 and share the regular-season title with Cincinnati. All three are finalists for the Wooden Award.
