* Prayers and thoughts to the family of Chicago Blackhawks writer Tim Sassone, who passed away on Tuesday. I didn’t know him very well, but he was a mainstay on the Blackhawks beat for the last 25 years.
 
* Former Sabres captain Steve Ott is happy with his new lease on life with the St. Louis Blues.
 
* Rob Rossi takes a look at a Pittsburgh Penguins team that seems to be at a serious crossroads right now with the veterans calling out teammates for a lack of “passion” in their game.

* James O’Brien has the details on the Maple Leafs, who “still believe” that can push their way into the playoffs.

* Kudos to both Milan Lucic and Patrice Bergeron, who both earned over $3,000 in bids for the annual Cuts for a Cause event going on Wednesday in Boston.
 
* For something completely different: Some strange things happening with the Golden State Warriors where Brian Scalabrine has been “reassigned” from his assistant coaching job with Mark Jackson.
