The Penguins line-up doesn't look much better today. Malkin is skating, but he'll be out for at least the next two games. In our minds, we imagine that the WBS Penguins coaching staff is just staring into their locker room with tears in their eyes.
Pittsburgh Penguins lines from Penguins.NHL.com:
Chris Kunitz – Sidney Crosby – Pascal Dupuis
Harry Zolnierczyk – Jussi Jokinen – Brian Gibbons
Chris Conner – Brandon Sutter – Joe Vitale
Craig Adams – Zach Sill – Chuck Kobasew
Matt Niskanen – Olli Maatta
Remember when the Penguins acquired Harry Zolnierczyk and we all thought "There's a second line winger right there!" Oh…. wait…..
At this point, the Penguins could write that "Johnny Moosejaw" was in the line-up and we'd all just be okay with it.
