NOTES


Quite the list of changes heading into this one.


For starters, Miroslav Satan was sent down to waivers earlier today. Technically this means he's still a Penguin, but he will not skate tonight against Tampa and may have played his final game for Pittsburgh. [Edit:] Well, he's obviously on the ice tonight. [/Edit] If anything this will give Ray Shero and Co. an idea of who's interested. From there, perhaps a trade will go in motion.


Joining Satan on the waiver wire is Gary Roberts, similarly sent down this afternoon. Apparently there are plenty of teams willing to pick up an injury-prone veteran in his last season for locker room presence alone. With any luck Pittsburgh is not one of them.


Sidney Crosby is once again a no show for his fourth-straight game. The groin injury is still giving him trouble and thankfully he's opted to take it slow. The Penguins are 3-0 without him in the lineup.


Marc-Andre Fleury will once again start for the Penguins, rivaled across the rink by Tampa's Karri Ramo.


And remember, this one is on VERSUS.
