Philadelphia Flyers: On his last shift Tuesday night, Sami Kapanen looked about as stable as Bambi on ice after getting leveled by Toronto's Darcy Tucker. But the gritty forward-defenseman expects to be back in action for Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals against Tampa Bay on Saturday.

Tampa Bay Lightning: Ruslan Fedotenko left Philadelphia for Tampa Bay just two years ago, but the Lightning forward won't see too many familiar faces when he takes on his former team in the East finals. "They have changed so much since I was there. A lot of people got traded. It's not the same team as when I was there," Fedotenko told the Tampa Tribune.

Lightning head coach John Tortorella and Flyers center Jeremy Roenick grew to appreciate each other when Roenick played for Phoenix and Tortorella was a Coyotes assistant from 1997-99. "J.R. is a pain in the [butt]. And he was a pain in the [butt] to coach. But if there is one thing about him, he is going to compete," Tortorella told the Tampa Tribune.
