Highlights include Sidney Crosby, Alex Ovechkin, Claude Giroux, Filip Forsberg, Shea Weber, Dustin Byfuglien, Pekka Rinne and Carey Price. Noteworthy omissions include Jamie Benn, Erik Karlsson and P.K. Subban.

Sideny Crosby will center the top line between Chris Kunitz and David Perron versus Montreal on Saturday night.

Crosby said, "We've had a few days of practice together, and he's [Perron] a pretty easy guy to read out there. He likes to go to the scoring areas and he likes to shoot the puck, so I don't see it being a really big adjustment for anybody." Crosby leads the league with 32 assists, and Kunitz is third on the team with 12 goals. Perron meanwhile has a goal in two games as a Penguin. Look for them to do some damage.
