Injuries.
They have finally struck the Pens with vengeance.

It was one thing that had me worried about their play all season-the injuries were not significant.

Out:Murray but that may not be a bad thing since Jarry has done well in his place. Still though, it is concerning that Murray is hurt yet again
Letang again
Schultz still
Now Ruhwedel.
Half the defense is hurt.
Rust-who looked like he had a serious hand injury last game. He is listed as out for a significant amount of time.
In: DeSmith
Pedan/Corrado on defense
Garrett Wilson at forward

Simon should be back in the lineup.

I find it interesting that Sprong hasn't had a call up to this point. I have no idea of his showing at WBS but there have been four or so forwards called up before him.
Penguins projected lineup
Jake Guentzel -- Sidney Crosby -- Patric Hornqvist

Carl Hagelin -- Evgeni Malkin -- Phil Kessel

Dominik Simon -- Riley Sheahan -- Conor Sheary

Tom Kuhnhackl -- Carter Rowney -- Ryan Reaves

Brian Dumoulin -- Matt Hunwick

Ian Cole -- Jamie Oleksiak

Olli Maatta -- Frank Corrado

Tristan Jarry

Casey DeSmith

Scratched: Garret Wilson, Andrey Pedan

Injured: Matt Murray (upper body), Kris Letang (lower body), Justin Schultz (lower body), Bryan Rust (upper body), Chad Ruhwedel (upper body)

God that defensive lineup is depressing.

Bam, we are the weak sister right now.

I thought Maata did alright the other night as the lead D man.

Rust is going to be out a while and that hurts because though he isn't great his effort this year has been there nearly every night.

I wouldn't be shocked at a big trade soon.

Awesome start! That’s the intensity we’ve been missing.

Yeah, good start.

Man that was so close to offsides.

Nice feed by Guentzel and Dumo buries it.

Feels like a home game.

I like where Dumo is going: he’s turning into a really solid player

Opps, Jake's pass went off a skate. Too much time doing other things during the game.

It would be a good sign to see the Pens come out in the second with the same jump they had in the first. Period to period is how this team has to look at it.
