Bob Grove: “Letang played 32:22 tonight, most TOI ever in a regular season game that finished in regulation. His most TOI ever in regular season GP was 33:56 @ SJ on Nov. 3, 2011, a 4-3 SOL.”
Isabelle Khurshudyan: Tom Wilson on his fight with Jamie Oleksiak: “I read the stuff that’s said after last season and leading up to it. Yeah, I think it probably had to be done sooner or later, give him a chance to defend his teammate after what happened last year.”
Isabelle Khurshudyan: Wilson continued: “Obviously, you never want to see a guy go down like that. That’s hockey. I respect him as a player, and it’s unfortunate to see that.”

Shelly Anderson: “Crosby tells Pierre he was asking about an instigator penalty when Ovechkin started yapping. “I was here to play hockey, not chat with him,” Crosby says.
Pierre’s account of their ‘chat’:
Sid: Why don’t you fight him?
Ovi: Why don’t you fight me? Stop talking.”
