• Uh, no. (“Members of the Avalance quebec pee wee team pose with the Stanley Cup as part of NHL trophy night at the Pepsi Center prior to the Colorado Avalanche against the Vancouver Canucks on March 24, 2013 in Denver, Colorado.’”

Douglas Murray on being traded to the Pittsburgh Penguins: “It's extremely exciting going to Pittsburgh, going to the best team in the league already. They always have some great players and I'm just excited to get there, get used to the team and take a run at the Stanley Cup." [Mercury News]

• Joe Morrow on his experience in the Penguins’ farm system: “I definitely struggled the first half of the season trying to find my place and find positives in what I was doing. They nitpicked my game so hard in the defensive zone that I had to change a lot of things.” [Citizens Voice]

Danny Briere is out indefinitely with a concussion right around the trade deadline. [NHL.com]

• Good stuff from Custance on the New York Rangers, including a chilling quote on Brad Richards: "He's not playing well," said an Eastern Conference scout. "His legs have left him." [E$PN]

• You know what the Rangers need? A Hobbit Wizard, that’s what. [NYDN]

Boston Bruins ready to go all-in for Jarome Iginla? Maybe Chiarelli can pull off deals for lesser-appreciated commodities, like he did with Peverley and Kelly two years ago, but for a team with a chance to win its second Cup in three years, with cap space, being in the hunt for Jarome Iginla is simply too good to pass up despite the cost. Draft picks, prospects, or a share in Delaware North, whatever. With Iginla, the Bruins would be a much more dynamic hockey team. Not to go all Ray Bourque on you, but Iginla would bring that veteran determination of finally winning the Cup." [Boston.com]

• Joe Nieuwendyk on trading Brenden Morrow, and telling the Dallas Stars about it: “I talked to them this morning because it is a big deal when you move your captain (but) this doesn’t change our mindset at all of making the playoffs. We wanted to get that on the table. I think the guys are really focused and I said that to them that, in a way, this brings the team closer together. When you lose a player that has meant so much to the organization, you all have to step up, you all have to come together and I expect them to do that.” [Dallas Stars Blog]

• Aaron Rome is back tonight for Dallas. [Stars]

• There is now a guy named Buddy Robinson from New Jersey on the Ottawa Senators, because that’s not weird or anything. [WCHB]

• Marian Hossa will miss tonight’s game against the Los Angeles Kings, but the Chicago Blackhawks will have Andrew Shaw in the lineup despite a flu bug. [Between the Circles]

• For the Kings: “here were several different line combinations at the morning skate – Anze Kopitar centered a line with Dustin Brown and Jeff Carter, while Mike Richards, Justin Williams and Toffoli skated together.” [LA Kings Insider]

• What was Rick Nash thinking when he hit Tomas Kopecky? [Hockey Writers]

• Jason LaBarbera gets the start for the Phoenix Coyotes tonight as Mike Smith recoveres from his dive. [Malik]

• Mike Kostka hath returned for the Toronto Maple Leafs. [QMI]

• Never change, angry fighting youth hockey parents. [CBC Sports]

• World’s Dumbest Thief Targeted A Law Enforcement Hockey Game. Yup. [With Leather]

• Lambert tries to wrap his brain around Alex Ovechkin’s resurgence: “We’ll see how long it lasts, and certainly it can’t go forever, but for right now, it’s lazy, dumb, not focused on hockey Alex Ovechkin who is laughing and feeling good, and Milbury is probably screaming at some 5-year-old child who lost his mommy in a suburban Boston grocery store. No hustle outta that kid.” [Two-Line Pass]

• Finally, here are all the big moments from the Penguins’ 12-game winning streak:
