Game Day Penguins vs Predators 1/8/09

The Pens open up a 3 game road trip today in Nashville in what could be the end of the Therrien era depending on how the team does in the 3 games or maybe just tonight. There is also the factor of whether or not Pat Quinn is actually the coach in waiting or if this is ust some big hoax. The Penguins made some big news today by locking Jordan Staal up through the 2012-2013 season with a 4 million a year contract extension. This leads me to believe that they have plans for him besides being the 3rd line center perhaps playing on Crosby's wing like he did the other night after Dupuis left with injury. Here are the projected lines for tonights game via the Pens website.


Forwards
Kennedy-Crosby-Staal
Satan-Malkin-Sykora
Goligoski-Staal-Cooke
Wallace-Jeffrey-Godard

Defense
Orpik-Whitney
Eaton-Boucher
Scuderi-Letang

Netminder
Fleury


As you can see Jordan Staal will be pulling double duty tonight as Sid's wing and as the 3rd line center to earn that oay increase he received today. In reality Max Talbot will most likely be the 3rd line center.
