Penguins - Lightning

-“I tried to challenge these guys, and Sid in particular, to play with that necessary emotion. My experience of coaching against him for all those years was that when Sid is at his best, he’s emotionally engaged." - Head coach Mike Sullivan on captain/center Sidney Crosby (above).

-Sullivan gave an endorsement of left winger Conor Sheary after he struggled in Game 2.

-"It was a little fast in the first period. But as the game went on, I settled in and felt more comfortable." - Lightning defenseman Anton Stralman on his play in Game 2. It was his first game in two months after recovering from a broken left fibula.

-Lightning coach Jon Cooper expects goaltender Ben Bishop to return to the lineup during the series. He has been sidelined since suffering a left leg injury in Game 1.

-Lightning defenseman Andrej Sustr's journey to the NHL took him from the Czech Republic, Alaska, Youngstown, Syracuse, Nebraka, up-state New York and the Gulf Coast.

-After the Jump: The Sharks tie the Western Conference final, 1-1.
