Pittsburgh Penguins: Mario Lemieux has skated for the first time since hip surgery in January and physical therapist Mark Mortland told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette that the Penguins captain and owner is pain-free in his hip and back. Lemieux is apparently trying to get ready to play for Team Canada in this summer's World Cup and would like to return to the Penguins if there isn't a labor disruption.

Tampa Bay Lightning: Tampa Bay center Vincent Lecavalier really gave the Bell Centre crowd something to boo about Tuesday night when he scored the tying goal with 16.5 seconds remaining in the third period, setting the stage for Brad Richards' overtime goal in the Lightning's 4-3 victory in Game 3. "I don't really know how to take [the boos]. I'm just playing out there," Lecavalier told the Tampa Tribune about the reaction from his hometown crowd.

Montreal Canadiens: The Canadiens came up with a determined effort that was among their best of the postseason Tuesday night but still didn't have enough to beat the Lightning, who have a commanding 3-0 lead in the series.
