Crosby was expected to play his first game of pre-season, but missed due to the death of his grandmother.

Kasperi Kapanen and Andrew Ebbett scored first-period goals as the Penguins recorded a 2-1 win over the Blue Jackets.

The Nashville Predators enjoyed a good day against the Florida Panthers, winning both of their split-squad games.

Craig Smith scored the decisive goal in the shoot-out in the first game as the Predators claimed a 2-1 win.

The second win was far more convincing as the Predators cruised to a 4-1 victory.

The Boston Bruins were 3-1 winners over the Detroit Red Wings and Jared Spurgeon's third-period goal saw the Minnesota Wild edge the Winnipeg Jets 4-3.

Elsewhere, the Dallas Stars overcame the St. Louis Blues 4-2 and two first-period goals set up the San Jose Sharks' 3-1 win over the Anaheim Ducks.
