Pre-Game Buzz
Penguins forward Mike Comrie, as expected, will return to the lineup after being a healthy scratch Tuesday night against the Philadelphia Flyers.
Arron Asham will come out of the lineup.
Comrie has appeared in two games since returning from hip surgery last Friday. He has 0 goals and 5 assists in 18 games played this season.
Despite seeing some game action and participating in full practices for about two weeks now, Comrie remains stuck on the 4th line, a spot where he’s useless to the Penguins.
Comrie will skate on the 4th line tonight with Mike Rupp and Craig Adams.
Comrie’s will also see time on the second power play unit but he gives Pittsburgh nothing in a 4th line role.
