Rowney is day to day as well.
That third line isn't very good defensively. It might mean that Guentzel is on the PK which he did for the first time in a long while against Philly.

Good to see Simon getting another chance. Sprong showed his big shot last game. Too bad it wasn't accurate but I expect that to improve. He is also bigger than I remember.
I suspect we see Crosby and Malkin centering the third/fourth lines on occasion again.
I'd like to see Oleksiak get some big minutes to see if he can handle it. So far he is done alright.


Penguins projected lineup
Dominik Simon -- Sidney Crosby -- Conor Sheary

Patric Hornqvist -- Evgeni Malkin -- Phil Kessel

Carl Hagelin -- Jake Guentzel -- Daniel Sprong

Tom Kuhnhackl -- Riley Sheahan -- Ryan Reaves

Matt Hunwick -- Kris Letang

Olli Maatta -- Jamie Oleksiak

Ian Cole -- Justin Schultz

Matt Murray

Tristan Jarry

Scratched: Frank Corrado

Injured: Bryan Rust (upper body), Chad Ruhwedel (upper body), Brian Dumoulin (concussion), Carter Rowney (upper body)

Interesting period.
Started off like a track meet then it morphed into a tight checking affair. Man, do the Canes stick to their man.Nothing called even though there should have been several PP's on both sides.
At the end Kessel gets called on a ticky tack slash away from play and the Pens kill it. Towards the end of the PK Murray saved Letangs ass after 58 took possession of the puck on the short wall in his own end and promptly tossed it across ice where a Cane came swooping in in the high slot and fired point blank on 30. Credit to Murray for coming out of his net to cut the angle. Like the old Murray did not too long ago.

Good jump by the Birdies for most of the period.

If the Pens would match Carolina's effort they would be up a few. The second has been more of what we have seen too often this season.

Terrible hockey and they aren’t skating. Just bad all around.

Where do you even start with that piece of shit period? Before the rush at the end almost 9 full minutes went by without a single shot on net. Oleksiak makes a great pass to Horny ends up being a 2 on 0 and Horny shoots the puck wide?

A nice turnover there by Sid at the end of the period to top off the poop sundae. Awesome.
