For the second day in a row, defenseman Paul Martin
was not skating. Yesterday was called a maintenance day, but the team has recalled youngster Simon Despres
from the minors, so the Penguins
could be done yet another regular from their lineup.
Zbynek Michalek also did not skate this morning (though he did practice yesterday). Will be interesting to see what or whom laces them up for the do or die Game 4 tonight.
Chris Kunitz - Evgeni Malkin - Tyler Kennedy
Steve Sullivan - Sidney Crosby - Pascal Dupuis
Matt Cooke - Jordan Staal - Eric Tangradi
Dustin Jeffrey - Joe Vitale - Richard Park
One assumes, depending on Martin and Michalek's status that Despres and/or Brian Strait could be in the lineup.
