Ron Francis' contract is for 5 years and worth 4.1 million dollars.  The base
salary is said to be between $850,000 to $900,000 per year.

Francis centered a line with Kevin Stevens and Joey Mullen as his wings.  He
played on power plays and penalty killing, too.  I didn't see the game, but
from what I heard Francis did rather well considering he's been out so long.

Mario Lemieux expects to be in the lineup tomorrow night for the Pens
game against the Washington Capitals.  However, Paul Coffey is questionable.
He left Saturday night's game in Montreal (4-1 Canadiens) with back spasms.
He said yesterday that his back feels "tight".  He believes the problem
stems from a cross check to the back he received during last Thursday
game against NJ.
