Notes & Lines: Back At It


Hey, remember the NHL? It's back! (Sadly, not in Pog form…)

There's no Carey Price for Montreal, as he'll be out for the next couple of games with a lower body injury. That means Peter Budaj will be in net for the Habs. Marc-Andre Fleury will start for Pittsburgh. 

Taylor Pyatt and Joe Vitale will be back in the line-up tonight. Plus, the Pens' website has some updates on Letang and Dupuis

The Habs played yesterday, losing 2-1 in overtime against Detroit. Will that help them or hurt them?

Pittsburgh Penguins lines from Daily Faceoff:

Chris Kunitz – Sidney Crosby – Brian Gibbons
Jussi Jokinen – Evgeni Malkin – James Neal
Tanner Glass – Brandon Sutter – Chuck Kobasew
Taylor Pyatt – Joe Vitale – Craig Adams

Olli Maatta – Matt Niskanen
Rob Scuderi – Robert Bortuzzo
Brooks Orpik – Simon Despres

Marc-Andre Fleury
