Pittsburgh Penguins’ captain Sidney Crosby is still without an official right winger for his line.

Reigning Art Ross Trophy winner and Canadian gold medal winner Martin St. Louis’ name has been in and out of play with the Rangers since Jan. 7, when he was bypassed by Team Canada (and Tampa Bay) general manager Steve Yzerman for his country’s Olympic roster, but no trade is pending that would bring the 38-year-old winger to New York, sources have told The Post.
Capitals GM George McPhee could be extremely busy over the next 10 days, and he’s believed to be looking to make several moves by the March 5 trade deadline.
The Capitals have been linked to Buffalo Sabres goaltender Ryan Miller, who is expected to be traded by the deadline.
If Shero opts to bring in rentals, as he did in 2013 with Jarome Iginla, Brenden Morrow and Douglas Murray, some players from teams doomed to miss the playoffs who might get consideration are:

Moulson spent his seasons in the organization mostly in Manchester, the Kings’ AHL team. Instead of re-signing Moulson, the Kings let him walk.
