— A few notes from the Penguins morning skate in Montreal —
Pascal Dupuis is skating with Sidney Crosby and Bill Guerin on the top line in today’s skate at the Bell Centre. Yesterday in practice Michael Rupp got an extensive look with Crosby and Guerin but Bylsma has opted to re-unite Dupuis on Crosby’s line for the first time since last year.
Forward Chris Kunitz has been cleared by team doctors to play and is targeting Saturday night against Florida as a possible return. He’s a coaches decision from here on out but will not play tonight.
I’m told based on the rotation, Martin Skoula will likely sit tonight and Alex Goligoski will return to the lineup. Goligoski has missed the past three games with a groin injury and had an excellent practice on Wednesday.
