Kukla's Korner Hockey

From Helene St. James at the Detroit Free Press,
Quick update from Mellon Arena here in Pittsburgh: In an effort to stop a two-game losing streak, the Penguins are inserting 36-year-old defenseman Darryl Sydor into the lineup for Game 3.
Sydor won Stanley Cups in 1999 with Dallas and in Tampa Bay 2004, but hasn’t seen action in a single game in the 2008 playoffs, that’s how highly the Penguins have thought of him. So exactly what he can add now is going to be interesting to see.
Update 12:37pm ET: From the CP,
The 36-year-old will replace rookie Kristopher Letang, whose play has slipped of late. Sydor has yet to see any action in this year’s playoffs.
