Josh Yohe says he's out for tonight. I presume that means he's hurt.

Pretty much a lock we won't see a milestone achieved tonight.

This team isn't playing like one that is bent on getting a shut out and Martin's out. I would love to be wrong but I wouldn't put money on a shutout tonight against Montreal.

Also, Yohe or Molinari tweeted Martin isn't even with the team. Not a good sign.

I laughed at Colin Dunlap's reply to the tweet.

Must have been Yohe, Molinari said Martin is there working out off ice.

Thankfully Despres will remain nailed to the press box. Eaton to the rescue.

Considering he was working with 2nd PP unit at morning skate, I'd say he is in and Bort is out tonight.

Defenseman Mark Eaton will make season debut tonight for #Pens. "A lot of different emotions. Excited, nervous. Looking forward to it."

#Pens D-pairs at morning skate: Orpik-Letang Eaton-Niskanen Engelland-Despres-Bortuzzo (rotating). Martin not with team


so looks like bortuzzo is out, and eaton is on the 2nd defensive pairing.....

So Eaton is already in? What am I missing here? How is he even remotely an upgrade over Bortuzzo or Despres?? Someone please help me understand?

Don't understand starting Vokun over MAF this game at all. Montreal is a top team in the east right now. Why play your backup? DB needs to realize this isn't Vokun of 2001 on the Preds....MAF is your #1. Time you start playing him like he is. Vokun isn't good enough to be considered anything else but an above average backup. Which is fine. But if MAF is your horse. Let him run...

Also I read Crosby is back with Kunitz and Dupuis and Sutter is with Neal....Maybe Sid can't play with anyone but Kunitz and Dupuis!

I'll consider it a milstone if Vokoun lets up less than 3 goals

Vokoun had the scheduled start so... no adapting to The Plan allowed.

I think this is the biggest game of the season tonight. How do they respond to adversity? Can Blysma defeat the coach he supplanted? Therrien will have his team pumped and ready. Will Blysma?

If the Pens show they're not up to the match, I start the clock ticking on Blysma. Give him 10 games to prove he can turn this team back into a champion.

Smarter with the puck than Bortuzzo. That kid might as well play with a paddle.

Its just one game and shakes thinks up at the blue line. Hope he can sneak a few shots on net like Current #7 does...

If this was a scheduled start for Vokun, I don't think DB informed MAF from the quotes I'm seeing...

Don't like this move at all.

Are people really going to complain about Therrien beating Bylsma if it's a close game?

Former coaches always beat their former teams. It's not a big of a deal.
