Insider Only Derrick Pouliot had to be sent down for cap reasons

  • Once it was determined Evgeni Malkin wouldn’t play vs the Detroit Red Wings, the Penguins had no choice but to send Derrick Pouliot to Wilkes Barre/Scranton because of cap reasons, head coach Mike Johnston said. “It’s the only move we could make to get a forward up here,” said Johnston as the Penguins called up Andrew Ebbett who will play if Sidney Crosby (Game Time Decision) can’t go. The Penguins are now only allowed two callups the rest of the regular season.
