Pens holding Staal out of tonights game

Penguins center Jordan Staal will be held out of tonights game versus the Toronto Maple Leafs. Staal got banged up in Thursday’s win over the Islanders and is dealing with what is believed to be a minor lower body injury

The Staal injury will open the door for Mark Letestu to get back into the lineup. Letestu who has fallen out of favor with the coaching staff, will center Matt Cooke and Arron Asham. Richard Park will replace Jordan Staal as the 2nd line center with Chris Kunitz and Pascal Dupuis
The Penguins riding a five game winning streak, will start Brent Johnson in goal tonight
