Comrie a healthy scratch tonight?

Lines in practice this morning:
Kunitz-Crosby-Dupuis
Tangradi-Letestu-Malkin
Cooke-Talbot-Kennedy
Rupp-Adams-Godard
(Comrie)

Comrie was the odd man out. At first blush, you'd think it'd be more about Godard getting to go against a physical Toronto team than Comrie not playing well. However, the fact that DB had moved Dupuis up to the 1st line and demoted Comrie to the 4th by the 3rd period against NJ on Monday makes me wonder if they really are unhappy with his play. I personally thought he had been playing well.
On second thought, who else would the Pens scratch? Rupp been playing well on the PK and PP. Talbot can't be scratched because we're already short enough on the PK as it is; same with Dupuis. Adams will only be scratched when he's injured. I guess the question DB had to ask was has Comrie out played LeTestu, TK, and Tangradi? The answer must've been no. Nonetheless, this news still surprises me.

On another note, my predictions for tonight: Crosby has 2 goals (one PP) and Gogo has 3 assists as the Pens beat the Leafs 4-2.
