Ponikarovsky's debut.
We love Youtube comments:

Bill Guerin is dealing with back spasms and he will be a game-time decision.

""Guerin did not practice Friday at Southpointe. If Guerin does play, he will skate on a line with center Sidney Crosby and winger Chris Kunitz. If he cannot, newly acquired winger Alexei Ponikarovsky may share shifts on lines centered by both Crosby and Evgeni Malkin.""

Proposed Penguins Lines, if Guerin can go:
Chris Kunitz – Sidney Crosby – Bill Guerin

Kari Lehtonen will start for the Stars.

"Around 1:19 p.m. today, which would be in the first period, the FSN Pittsburgh broadcast of the Penguins' game most likely will be disrupted for about 2-4 minutes because of a phenomenon called a sun outage.

It affects broadcasts at times because the Earth, the satellite dish being used and the sun align in such a way that the sun's rays cause problems with the transmission."

The Pens will be wearing their blue jerseys for the last time this season.
Today will be Mike Rupp's 400th NHL game, Evgeni Malkin's 300th NHL game and Kris Letang's 200th NHL game. [Empty Netters]
