WEIRTON, W.Va. - If the owner of Dee Jay's rib joint in suburban Pittsburgh had a beef with Philadelphia and Flyers coach Peter Laviolette, he certainly has forgotten that feud during the week of the NHL draft. If you remember, Dee Jay's - a famous barbecue shack located in West Virginia, just across the border, about 30 minutes from downtown Pittsburgh - decided to stop delivering ribs to the Flyers' plane after Laviolette's loose lips said they were the reason the team was 5-0-0 at Consol Energy Center.

PITTSBURGH PENGUINS star Sidney Crosby skated at the team's Consol Energy Center yesterday for the first time in more than 6 weeks. He was accompanied by injured teammates Jordan Staal and Simon Despres. The Penguins are not giving a timetable regarding when Crosby might return to play. Over the weekend it was revealed that Crosby suffered a neck injury in January 2011 that might have complicated his 11-month recovery from a concussion. The team acknowledged on Saturday that neurological spine specialist Dr. Robert S. Bray, in Los Angeles, discovered an unspecified neck injury that was "fully healed.

Sidney Crosby scored in his second straight game and added an assist to help the host Pittsburgh Penguins beat the New Jersey Devils, 5-2, on Sunday night. Crosby, who snapped out of a career-long 12-game goal drought Saturday, gave the Penguins some breathing room with a wrist shot by goalie Martin Brodeur early in the third period. Evgeni Malkin also had a goal and an assist for the Penguins to push his points total to 97, tops in the NHL. Pittsburgh has won 10 straight at Consol Energy Center and moved back within a point of the New York Rangers for the top stop in the Eastern Conference.

PITTSBURGH - The spotlights in the Consol Energy Center were impossibly bright and blinding, flashing just enough in the pregame to reveal the packed Penguins crowd in all white T-shirts. Just a few feet from Ilya Bryzgalov's crease, two mocking Penguins fans were dressed in bear costumes - Bryzgalov said this week he does not fear Sidney Crosby or Evgeni Malkin, only bears in the forest. For the Flyers, Game 1 of the Eastern Conference quarterfinals started - mentally and physically - in just about the most hostile way possible.

ALEX OVECHKIN is skipping the NHL All-Star game in Ottawa, a decision he announced a day after getting a three-game suspension from the league for a hit on an opponent. "I feel I'm not deserving to be there right now," the Washington Capitals' captain said yesterday. "If I'm suspended, I have to be suspended. " Ovechkin was punished by the NHL on Monday for launching himself to hit Pittsburgh defenseman Zbynek Michalek during a loss to the Penguins Sunday. Last night, Mathieu Perreault got his first career hat trick to lead the Capitals to a 5-3 victory over the visiting Boston Bruins.

FOUR MONTHS ago, when the Flyers and Penguins last met, Chris Kunitz thought he gave Pittsburgh a one-goal lead 19 seconds into their Nov. 13 game. It would have been the seventh time the Penguins scored in the opening 5 minutes of their last 11 matchups - a stat that seemed to catch some Flyers off-guard. "Over there or here?" Scott Hartnell asked about that game. "Did we win? You play these guys so much, everything seems to run together. One thing that is consistent is the energy, the emotion, the hitting, the stuff after the whistles.

OUT OF ALL the decisions Craig Berube will be forced to make on the fly this weekend in back-to-back games against the Penguins, perhaps his toughest choice will be one of the few that he actually can plan ahead: his starting goaltenders. Ray Emery, who hasn't dressed since pulling himself from the loss to San Jose on Feb. 27, skated for more than 90 minutes yesterday in practice - adding an interesting wrinkle to Berube's decision. Emery saw most of the work in practice while spare Cal Heeter, the Phantoms goaltender who has served as Steve Mason's backup for the past 2 weeks, largely stood to the side.

PITTSBURGH - Brayden Schenn enjoyed his coming-out party in the 2012 Stanley Cup playoffs against the Penguins, making a name for himself with six points in six games as the Flyers ousted their most hated rival. Today, he awakes as the Flyers' leading scorer with 12 points. And, thanks to a two-goal effort from Schenn, which delivered a nail-biting 2-1 win last night over those same Penguins, the Flyers finally have the statement victory needed to declare they've officially turned the corner they've been talking about the last 2 weeks.

PITTSBURGH - The Flyers and Penguins cannot do normal, or sedate. Starting last spring, and continuing until today, these two rivals have been incapable of playing a hockey game that does not resemble a coin spinning wildly on its edge, spinning and toppling in an unpredictable direction. And for all of this, we are glad. A dozen preposterously fun things happened Wednesday night at Consol Energy Center, and maybe more. "There were just so many crazy parts to the game," Flyers coach Peter Laviolette said.

MATT MOULSON scored a goal and assisted on another, Evgeni Nabokov stopped 37 shots and the New York Islanders dominated the listless Penguins, 4-1, Tuesday night in Pittsburgh. John Tavares scored for the second straight game for New York while Michael Grabner collected his fourth goal of the season and Casey Cizikas found the net for the first time in his career. It was more than enough to send the Penguins to their third loss in four games. Pascal Dupuis scored with just over a minute remaining to avoid the shutout.

PITTSBURGH - In the Year of the Defensemen, in which eight out of the first 10 picks in Friday night's entry draft were blue-liners, the Flyers predictably chose to bypass selecting a polished defenseman to fill a much-needed gap in their farm system. Instead, with talented names such as Finland's Olli Maatta and Saskatoon's Dalton Thrower still on the board, the Flyers drafted from leftfield to select center Scott Laughton from the OHL's Oshawa Generals at No. 20 overall. Laughton, 18, collected 53 points in 68 games with Oshawa last season.

There is loud, and then there is EARSPLITTING LOUD. Pittsburgh Penguins fans were the latter Friday night, shaking the Consol Energy Center during their team's 3-2, stay-alive win over the Flyers. It was the loudest an arena has been for a Flyers game, home or away, this season. The Penguins won because goalie Marc-Andre Fleury was spectacular, but don't underestimate the fans' impact. "They gave us energy," center Jordan Staal said after scoring a key goal in the Penguins' second straight win, which sliced the Flyers' dwindling series lead to three games to two. On Sunday, with the series shifting back to the Wells Fargo Center, Flyers fans will try to return the favor.
