Game two of the road trip.
The Pens lost 2-1 at home to the Wild earlier this season.
Former Penguin Petr Sykora will not be playing tonight.
This is the third game in a row that Sykora will be a healthy scratch.
His agent, Alla Walsh, isn’t happy about it.

“The coach is treating Sykora with less respect than a rookie.”

Walsh was echoing comments originally made by Michael Russo of the Star Tribune.

Niklas Backstrom will be in net for the Wild.
Fleury for the Pens.
Remember that the game will be on Versus, so DirecTV customers will have to find another way to watch.
The game is on TSN2 in Canada.
The Wild are in 11th place in the West with 47 points.
They’ve won two in a row, but lost four straight prior to that.
Do it.

Go Pens.
