Welcome back Tocchet-you have the worst team in the league so I expect the Pens to play to their level tonight.

Looks like the lines are jumbled again.

Penguins projected lineup

Conor Sheary -- Sidney Crosby -- Patric Hornqvist

Jake Guentzel -- Evgeni Malkin -- Phil Kessel

Carl Hagelin -- Riley Sheahan -- Bryan Rust

Tom Kuhnhackl -- Greg McKegg -- Ryan Reaves

Olli Maatta -- Kris Letang

Ian Cole -- Justin Shultz

Brian Dumoulin -- Chad Ruhwedel

Matt Murray

Tristan Jarry

Scratched: Josh Archibald, Zach Trotman, Frank Corrado

Injured: Matt Hunwick (concussion), Carter Rowney (hand)

Can't complain too much about the lines- Sully is loading up the top 6. Although I wish Kuhn would go away altogether

We'll see if Letang's brain functions tonight. Good news is that Schultz and Hunwick are close to returning

Coyotes are the cure for all that ails your hockey team.

Schultz, Malkin
2-0

Coyotes played last night-sure is nice to have it the other way around.

Great pressure by the pens there halfway through the second.

Is there something wrong with Guentzel? He looks nothing like he did last spring.

PP finally comes through.

Fine stick work by Kessel there on the third goal a half foot from the goal line.

Think it's your typical "sophomore slump". He shot at something like 18% last year, which is obviously unsustainable. Think he's got big confidence issues...believing that nearly every shot like last year was gonna go in.

But he looks good with Malkin and Kessel...set up and was involved with chances, so I don't think there's much worry about.

Schultz playing and eating some of Letang's minutes was a big deal. Still have no idea why Kuhn exists and Archi rots

I'll agree on Schultz, for sure. The breakout has been a key component of the offense's inability to score the puck. This simultaneously helps that and, like Donnie said, allows them to hopefully put Tanger in spots where he's more comfortable, and limit his minutes.

Totally agree. Hunwick Schultz Tanger and Maatta will be a solid defensive core; just keep these guys healthy.
