Just got back from the morning skate and it appears Petr Sykora will play tonight. Sykora skated hard and took one timers in practice. He appears close to 100% and skated with Evgeni Malkin and Jordan Staal during practice. Matt Cooke was dropped to the fourth line and skated with Mike Zigomanis and Eric Godard. It appeared in practice that Paul Bissonnette and Bill Thomas will be healthy scratches again
