Stanley Cup Playoffs
Jaroslav Halak followed in the footsteps of former hallowed Habs netminders and lifted Montreal into the second round. Now, all he has to do is stop Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin and the defending-champion Penguins. Follow the matchup from Day 1 on ESPN.com. Series page
PITTSBURGH -- Pittsburgh Penguins forward Tyler Kennedy will miss at least Game 1 of the second-round playoff series against the Montreal Canadiens because of a right leg injury.
Kennedy was hurt while being hit by Ottawa Senators defenseman Andy Sutton during the opening round of the Eastern Conference playoffs. Coach Dan Bylsma said Kennedy would not play in Friday night's game.
Defenseman Jordan Leopold (concussion) was also injured in the Ottawa series and is not expected to play early in the second round. He resumed skating on Wednesday, but there is no timetable for his return.
