by: The PensNation Staff

Penguins meet the Thrashers tonight inside Mellon Arena
Pittsburgh Penguins (26-16-1-53) vs. Atlanta Thrashers (18-17-6-42)

The Atlanta Thrashers come to Pittsburgh tonight for the first time this season, the two clubs are meeting for the second time this season the first was in Atlanta on November 21 where the Pens prevailed 3-2. The Penguins will look a little different this time around as they will have several defenseman this game that they didn't for the last due to injury Letang, McKee, and Goligoski were all out. The Pens will hit the ice with some different line combos as Kunitz was put on the shelf today, look for Luca Caputi to assume the wing position on the Malkin line where Kunitz has been residing recently, Gonchar is still out no word on when he will return. Also look for Brent Johnson in net tonight as Fleury will be getting the night off as he has played in 36 of the teams 43 games already this season which would put him on pace for an astounding 69 games in the regular season not to mention whatever games he plays in the Olympics.
