The Penguins' Sunday practice at CONSOL Energy Center had a different look than usual. The team, which will fly today to New Jersey and take on the Devils Monday at the odd start time of 4 p.m., switched up their line combinations.

Pittsburgh's makeover looked like this:
Kunitz-Crosby-Comrie
Tangradi-Letestu-Malkin
Cooke-Talbot-Kennedy
Rupp-Adams-Dupuis/Godard

 
Huge demotion for Dupuis. Rumors of Brent Johnson playing too.

Therefore, the Devils' roster problems really make things more difficult for New Jersey. First, Pierre-Luc Letourneau-Leblond's belligerent idiocy near the end of the Capitals game earned him a 1 game suspension.  As Tom Gulitti reported, the suspension doesn't clear Leblond's salary from the cap. So the Devils can't send him down to Albany  or Trenton where he belongs and replace him with an actual hockey player who may help the Devils win hockey games.   Already the 11 forwards are down to 10 for today's game.

Really? The Pens miss Jordan Staal?  No fucking shit.

No contest on the jobber of the week this week.
This serves as the read of the day, too:

What a jerk-off.
 

More recent views of Columbus, particularly those of Native Americans, have tended to be much more critical. This is because the native Taino of Hispaniola, where Columbus began a rudimentary tribute system for gold and cotton, disappeared so rapidly after contact with the Spanish, due to overwork and especially, after 1519, when the first pandemic struck Hispaniola.

 
Columbus was also responsible for the first "Left Wing Lock."  Just saying.
