Post-Morning Skate Update
Chris Conner will return to the lineup tonight and Arron Asham will be the odd-man out upfront.
Asham who is usually the first player off the ice during morning skates, was the last forward off the ice and stayed on the ice with tonight’s scratches.
Also, Defenseman Deryk Engelland who just signed a three year extension is expected to be scratched tonight as the Penguins will get Ben Lovejoy back into the lineup.
Forward Jordan Staal will make his Consol Energy Center debut, centering Tyler Kennedy and Evgeni Malkin.
Tonight’s Projected Lineup

Kunitz – Crosby – Dupuis
Kennedy – Staal – Malkin
