Three lineup changes appear likely for the Penguins (11-6-0, 22 pts) tonight vs the Florida Panthers (5-7-4, 14 pts) who defeated the Philadelphia 5-2 last night in Philadelphia.

Marc Andre Fleury (8-3-0, 2.34 GAA, .914 sv%) will start in goal, while Simon Despres and Dustin Jeffrey are also expected to play. Robert Bortuzzo, Zach Boychuk and Joe Vitale are the expected scratches tonight.
Mark Eaton skated for the third straight day with the team and worked as the fourth pairing with Robert Bortuzzo. Eaton is also getting some penalty kill work in during the power play session.
The coaches continue to be vocal with Eaton on the side as he is constantly communicating with Tony Granato. The Penguins are giving serious consideration to signing Eaton.
