Live at The Stanley Cup FinalI'm still in Toronto, at least until Game 4 next weekend, but there's going to be plenty of coverage coming out of today's meet and greet from those who are there.
Red Wings preseries availability
2:00 p.m. – Nicklas Lidstrom, Chris Osgood
2:15 p.m. – General player availability
3:00 p.m. – Ken Holland, Mike Babcock at podium
Penguins preseries availability
