Pittsburgh (5-1-0) @ Carolina (2-3-0)
The Pittsburgh Penguins are currenty going through their morning skate as the team prepares for the Carolina Hurricanes in a rematch of the Eastern Conference Finals.
I’m told based on the rotation in the morning skate, it appears winger Chris Bourque will be scratched again tonight. Bourque has only appeared in one game this season and tonight is a logical game for him to dress.
Morning Skate Lines
Kunitz – Crosby – Guerin
Fedotenko – Makin – Dupuis
Cooke – Staal – Kennedy
Rupp – Adams – Godard
Extra: Chris Bourque
*Canes forward Eric Staal who was questionable going into tonight’s game participated in the Canes morning skate and will play tonight.
Tonight is a key matchup for Marc Andre Fleury and Cam Ward. Both goaltenders are in the running for a spot on Team Canada.
