Insider Only Sunday’s Practice Report: Lineup changes coming for Monday’s game

The Penguins just concluded their practice around 3:00 p.m. in New York. As expected the mood wasn’t very good after the team’s performance last night.
As I mentioned on Thursday the plan this week was for Mathieu Garon to start in goal against the Islanders. Based on practice today that still appears to be the plan. Don’t look into it that the team is benching Marc Andre Fleury for giving up 6 goals Saturday night.
My source tells me there will be one lineup change (not counting Garon) and possibly two against the Islanders tomorrow afternoon.

All signs point towards Gill returning to the lineup was the vibe my source got from today’s practice. A few forwards didn’t skate so the lines right now are unknown. I should receive confirmation in the morning on what the lineup will be. Unsure if Minard will be get a chance to get back into the lineup. Once I hear something I will post it
Edmonton has expressed an interest in Hal Gill.
The Penguins have held brief discussions with Petr Sykora on a contract extension throughout the past couple months. Those discussions will pickup leading up to the trade deadline. Similar to how the Penguins tried to sign Ryan Malone prior to last years trade deadline. Will touch base on this later in the evening. I Also have some info on Keith Tkachuk…….
