What’s Brewing 2.9

TAMPA, Fla. -- Good morning!

It's Saturday, so there's Site Stuff.

There's also a wonderful, one-of-a-kind photo essay this morning from Matt Sunday on the Penguins' Bryan Rust and one specific move he'd picked up on a few weeks back. Sunday snapped the pics, interviewed Rust and others here after practice yesterday, then wrote it all up. That's why he's Sunday.

• The Penguins and Lightning go at it tonight. The home team's morning skate is at 10:30 a.m., the visitors an hour later. Faceoff is at 7:08 p.m. Sunday and I will blanket this thing. The team is off tomorrow, traveling to Philadelphia, where Chris Bradford will take the final leg of the trip. All our hockey coverage can be found on our team page.

• Footnote: Because of the game today, my Live Qs at 5 will take place tomorrow. We'll obviously have a lot more to discuss.

• John Perrotto's spring training preview offers three overviews of the Pirates' camp to come. Reporting for pitchers and catchers is Monday. John, Sunday and I will all be arriving into Bradenton tomorrow. All our baseball coverage can be found on our team page.

• We've got a goal of getting 1,000 new app installations in 2019 by the opening of the Major League Baseball season. We tracked 8 new installations yesterday. Current figure for the year: 581
