The Pittsburgh Penguins have assigned forward Josh Archibald to the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins of the American Hockey League on a conditioning assignment, it was announced today by executive vice president and general manager Jim Rutherford.
The WBS Penguins own the AHL's top regular-season record at 12-4-1. This weekend, they'll host Milwaukee and Rochester on Friday and Saturday night, respectively, before finishing with a Sunday matinee visit to Hershey.


Quote Roundup: Pens-Sabres

Spoiler:
https://www.nhl.com/penguins/news/quote-roundup-pens-sabres/c-293561504
Pens defenseman Ian Cole has been a healthy scratch for the last three games for Pittsburgh. However, he skated on a defensive pair at Thursday's practice and could be back in the lineup tonight against Buffalo. He addressed that following Friday's morning skate.

On this past week: "For me I just have to keep going and keep working hard and everything will sort itself out. As a player you don't have a ton of control over it. It's something that's unfortunate, but I'll keep working hard and everything will take care of itself."

On returning after an absence: "You want to keep it simple at first and try to get back into it. The longer that you're not playing, the more you tend to get out of game speed. Fortunately, it hasn't been very long."

Head coach Mike Sullivan addressed several topics with the media following the morning skate. Here are the best takeaways.
On Malkin's status: "He'll be a game-time decision, but he looks pretty strong right now."
On the three-day stretch of no games: "It was a good opportunity to recover. I think we haven't really had a break in the schedule in this early part of the season. To have an opportunity to recover physically and mentally, to get away from it, hopefully will serve our team well."

On Archibald's re-assignment: "He's been a great pro. He's done everything within his power to give himself a chance. It's just hard sometimes when you don't get into game action. … We thought it would make the most sense to give him an opportunity to get into a bunch of games. Wilkes-Barre has three games on the weekend and he has a chance to play in three games in a row."

The Pens lack of scoring form the bottom six (6) has been a problem. The Sabres have a slightly different problem, highlighted by the following trivia question:

How many total goals have the Sabre defensemen scored this season?

A) 5
B) 9
C) 14
D) 0

If you guessed D, you would be right!

I don't like fighting. But if the Sabres get chippy and Reaves and Kane go at it, I may approve.

1) Kane won’t fight Reaves
2) Sullivan won’t put Reaves into a situation where he will fight

I'm beginning to think my PensPredictor of 1o may be a bit low.

Another high glove hand, how is he in the NHL? :roll:

Is this a home game? The crowd appears to erupt when we score.

They’re not used to a lot of net movement in Buffalo. Lol

The save by Jarry on Eichel a few minutes ago was huge. The Sabres are waiting to lose. That would have bolstered their spirit immensely.

Not sure how more blatant a hook you need when it’s dragging a guy by his jersey.

They'll probably have to make the proverbial even up call before another call goes our way.
