HOT IN THE IGLOO
Pittsburgh downed New York 5-4 in Game 1 of their second round series on Friday, handing the Rangers their first loss in four road games in these playoffs. The Penguins, who trailed 3-0 at one point, have yet to lose at home in three playoff games after sweeping Ottawa in the first round.

MORR-OFFENSE
Brenden Morrow scored twice, including the winner in overtime, in Dallas' 3-2 victory over San Jose on Friday and now has five goals in seven playoff games- already two more than his previous career postseason high.

BANGED UP AVS
Colorado forward Peter Forsberg, who missed Thursday's series opening loss to Detroit with a groin injury, is questionable for Game 2 on Saturday, while Wojtek Wolski is likely to miss the rest of the series because of an upper-body injury. Avalanche coach Joel Quenneville expects Jose Theodore to play Saturday after being pulled and sent to the hotel during Game 1 because he was sick.

OUT
Pittsburgh's Gary Roberts sat out Friday's series-opening 5-4 win over the New York Rangers with a groin injury. The same problem forced the 41-year-old Roberts to miss the final two games of the Penguins' first-round sweep of Ottawa. ... Sergei Zubov was scratched from Dallas' Game 1 win over San Jose despite rejoining workouts this week. The defenseman has been out with a variety of injuries since Jan. 17.

SPEAKING

Our condolences to John's family and to the Blue Jackets' organization.'' - NHL commissioner Gary Bettman, on the passing of Blue Jackets owner John H. McConnell.
