Paul Martin misses another practice, Simon Despres recalled

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.

Lines used: 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.
