Sprong is scratched and the two call-ups are on the fourth line. I thought Sprong was coming along with his game the last few contests.
Caps are trying to win two in a row for the first time this season.

Penguins projected lineup
Dominik Simon -- Sidney Crosby -- Bryan Rust

Carl Hagelin -- Evgeni Malkin -- Patric Hornqvist

Jake Guentzel -- Riley Sheahan -- Phil Kessel

Zach Aston-Reese -- Matt Cullen -- Garrett Wilson

Brian Dumoulin -- Kris Letang

Olli Maatta -- Chad Ruhwedel

Jack Johnson -- Jamie Oleksiak

Casey DeSmith

Matt Murray

Scratched: Juuso Riikola, Daniel Sprong

Injured: Justin Schultz (left leg fracture), Derick Brassard (lower body)

LGP. A big win on the road would go a long way in erasing the dread that was the last four games.

Fractal - they lose tonight we may need to rotate game thread duties to reverse some mojo.

When was the last time that any Pens coach split Crosby/Malkin up on the PP intentionally?
I've called for it in the past but I'm shocked to see it happen.

Should be 4 on 4, Holtby with the Oscar performance.

Great period by the Pens. We do need Geno to stop playing like a turnover creating doofus.

Why do I get the feeling that the guy in net tonight might be our guy going forward?

Nice TO by Sid that led to the back-check penalty.
1-1

Keep giving this team PP opportunities and it will end up being a joke.

Wow there are a lot of guys on this team that aren’t burying the puck.

Our bottom 6 are playing terrible offensive hockey.

Malkin didn't do much on that hit. Oshie practically jumped into a cannon and someone lit the fuse. Joke of a 5 min.

I agree. Should have gotten him on an embellishment as well.

He leaned into it. Wasn’t a lot. But enough to say he could have avoided it. I don’t think he should have been given the major. But with them supposedly stressing head hits, had to give him something.

Ryan Reaves has more points this year than Carl Hagelin and Bryan Rust.

Despite only playing 4 games this year, Tom Kuhnhackl is on pace to match the projected season point totals of Rust and Hagelin.

Neither Reaves or Kuhnhackl play extensive minutes with Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin, Kris Letang, or Phil Kessel.

Riley Sheahan has one less point than Hagelin and Rust.

This is not to suggest that Reaves and Kuhnhackl are better players or should be playing over these three. They're not and they shouldn't. It's an illustration of the lack of scoring the depth players have provided.

Can't blame the defense in this one...can we say they looked "adequate"? Both Wash goals were the result of F's not coming back down (Rust on the PP and Sid was trailing his man).

As discussed these forwards need to get it fucking going. DeSmith looks like Rookie Matt Murray with his calmness

To me, if Malkin is any Canadian or Ovechikin, the narrative and commentary is totally different, and there is no penalty call. Oshie is lining Geno up for a hit; Geno sees it coming and gives it instead of taking it.

What is Malkin supposed to do? Passively let Oshie hit him?
