Sidney Crosby and Matt Cooke Out Tonight, Brent Johnson Starting

Sidney Crosby will miss tonight's game with an upper-body injury, marking his first scratch from a game this season.  Matt Cooke is also a scratch, although there is no indication as to any injury that could be keeping him out.

After backstopping the Penguins to an 8-1 win over the Tampa Bay Lightning on Wednesday, Marc-Andre Fleury has been given the night off and Brent Johnson will start between the pipes.
