Goaltender Jeff Zatkoff is expected to make his second career NHL start tonight vs the New York Islanders. Zatkoff is the first goaltender off the ice in the morning skate, meaning he starts in goal tonight.
The Penguins have back to back situations playing in Toronto tomorrow night. Getting Zatkoff a home start is ideal.
Zatkoff is 0-1 on the season with a 6.00 GAA and .800 save percentage. He last played on October 11th, a span of 14 days.
Other lineup notes for tonight — Defenseman Kris Letang will make his season debut and be paired with Rob Scuderi………..Jayson Megna makes his NHL debut and will play right wing on the third line with Brandon Sutter and Tanner Glass…….Deryk Engelland returns to the lineup skating with Craig Adams and Joe Vitale.
