Sidney Crosby (upper body) is listed as day-to-day and his availability for Game 7 on Sunday remains uncertain. Crosby was able to take part in Saturday's optional practice, but coach Mike Sullivan didn't want to speculate if the Penguins captain would be ready to play on Sunday in Game 7 versus the New York Rangers. "We'll take each day as it comes. I'm not going to speculate at this point. They're obviously on the ice, that's encouraging," said Sullivan referring to Crosby, Tristan Jarry and Rickard Rakell. They're making progress."

Igor Shesterkin allowed three goals on 34 shots in Friday's 5-3 Game 6 win over the Pittsburgh Penguins. It was heading in a terrible direction for Shesterkin as the Penguins jumped out to a 2-0 lead after the opening frame. The Russian goaltender settled down from there, fighting the jeers from the Penguins home crowd to get his team the win. The Hart Trophy nominee hasn't been as sharp as we saw during the regular-season but it won't matter if he's able to deliver a Game 7 victory on Sunday.
