Johnson to start in goal
The Pittsburgh Penguins will face the New Jersey Devils tonight without Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin and goaltender Marc Andre Fleury in their lineup, as a contact on the scene tells me that Johnson is getting the start.
Crosby and Malkin will both sitout due to injury, while Marc Andre Fleury will be given the night off.
Brent Johnson will get the start in goal for the Pens. Johnson is 8-3-2 on the season with a 2.04 GAA and .927 save percentage. He will make his first start since Jan. 6.
Fleury is 20-5-2 in his last 27 starts. He figures to start the final two games before the All-Star break.
