Day 2 Quick Hits
*Evgeni Malkin remained at wing for the second straight day. Mike Comrie centered Malkin with Eric Tangradi and Nick Johnson taking a shift or two. Tangradi was using his body very well in today’s session, protecting the puck down low.
*Mark Letestu continues to have a strong camp, scoring a nice goal in the scrimmage, dancing defenseman Paul Martin for the goal. Letestu has goals in consecutive days and remains the third line center with Matt Cooke and Arron Asham on his wings.
*2006 2nd round pick Carl Sneep had a strong day, playing really sound in his own end.
*Paul Martin and Kris Letang were paired together for the second straight day.
*Max Talbot remains on the 4th line with Michael Rupp and Craig Adams.
*Dustin Jeffrey centered what can be considered the 5th line with Tyler Kennedy and Brett Sterling. Jeffrey had a goal today.
*Goaltender Mattias Modig has struggled and doesn’t appear to be a serious candidate to push Brad Thiessen for playing time in Wilkes Barre.
