Tomas Vokoun to start, Ben Lovejoy in for Simon Despres

Some news breaking on the lineup front, on the heels of the 5-2 loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs, the Pens will again go back to the rotation and give Tomas Vokoun his second start in a Penguins jersey tonight in the fourth game of the season.

Also of note, the team's sixth defenseman will be different for tonight's game too. Simon Despres will be out of the lineup and Ben Lovejoy will touch the ice for the first time since his game-winning goal giveaway in the playoffs last year.

As of now, the updated lines look as follow, at least to start the game:

Chris Kunitz - Sidney Crosby - Pascal Dupuis
Tyler Kennedy - Evgeni Malkin - James Neal
Matt Cooke - Brandon Sutter - Tanner Glass
Eric Tangradi - Joe Vitale - Craig Adams

Brooks Orpik - Paul Martin
Matt Niskanen - Kris Letang
Deryk Engelland - Ben Lovejoy
