Insider Only Penguins Game 2 Lineup: Vitale, Engelland In; Kennedy, Eaton Out

Coming off a 3-0 shutout loss in Game 1, the Pittsburgh Penguins will make two lineup changes tonight. Joe Vitale and Deryk Engelland are both being reinserted into the lineup, with Tyler Kennedy and Mark Eaton coming out of the lineup. Kennedy had played in eight straight games after being a healthy scratch for the first four games of the playoffs.
The addition of Vitale gives the Penguins a 5th center in the lineup and Vitale has been among the Penguins most consistent players in the faceoff circle all season.
Eaton had a poor Game 1 and his play in the post-season has slipped. Engelland, though, has also struggled for the most part in four post-season games. Engelland will be paired with Douglas Murray tonight.
Chris Kunitz – Sidney Crosby – Pascal Dupuis
Jarome Iginla – Evgeni Malkin – James Neal
Brenden Morrow – Brandon Sutter – Matt Cooke
Jussi Jokinen – Joe Vitale – Craig Adams
Brooks Orpik – Paul Martin
Matt Niskanen – Kris Letang
Douglas Murray – Deryk Engelland
Tomas Vokoun
