The Pittsburgh Penguins are currently tied at 1 with the New York Rangers at the start of the second period. Marc-Andre Fleury is standing on his head for some of his saves, and Sidney Crosby has the goal for the Penguins. Just a few things before tonight's tilt with the Norfolk Admirals:
  • Trade Rumor ALERT: Eric Cairns to the Los Angeles Kings for Noah Clarke? Stay tuned.
  • Lyle Odelein was placed on the injured reserve by GM Craig Patrick yesterday, meaning no one will be sent down to Wilkes-Barre.
  • Sean Collins will make his AHL debut tonight, most likely skating on a line with Dennis Bonvie and Kurtis MacLean.
  • Dany Sabourin is expected to start both weekend games for the Penguins, barring any injury.
  • It was confirmed by coach Joe Mullen that the demotion to Daniel Carcillo was done for disciplinary reasons. It was said that until he keeps his cool on the ice, he'll have to learn his lesson in the ECHL.
  • Tonight's referee will be Chris Ciamaga with Jim Harper and Aaron Lundbohm on the lines.
  • Binghamton defenseman Brad Norton will miss tonight's game in Hershey due to an instigator penalty he received in last night's game. He will return on Sunday to play the Penguins.
