    Basically this means MAF got his new glove to fit his cast.

    Should probably see Johnson tomorrow still, I'm thinking, since it was reported that MAF would wanted a few days or whatnot of practice time with that glove, breaking it in

    PITTSBURGH -- Penguins goalie Marc-Andre Fleury went through a full practice Saturday and is expected to start Sunday in Philadelphia.

    Fleury, a member of the Canadian Olympic team, has missed three games with a broken ring finger on his left hand. He is using a different type of glove that accommodates a splint on the broken finger.

    Penguins forward Pascal Dupuis also is expected to return for the first of the Penguins' two road games in two days. He was rammed face-first into the boards by Islanders defenceman Andy Sutton on Tuesday and sat out the Penguins' 6-3 loss to Washington on Thursday.

    Penguins forward Max Talbot might not be ready for Philadelphia after missing the Capitals game with an unspecified lower-body injury.

    Well.... he didn't play against the Flyers but with back to back games you had to figure he would sit in one of them. Made sense for it to be the first one to get more time breaking that new glove in... He should be in goal tonight

    On the Pens website, it says that MAF will be in tonight. Here are the projected lines for ya Kip

    Forwards
    Dupuis-Crosby-Guerin
    Fedotenko-Malkin-Johnson
    Cooke-Staal-Kennedy
    Rupp-Adams-Godard

    Defense
    Gonchar-Orpik
    McKee-Goligoski
    Eaton-Letang

    Netminder
    Fleury

    I still wish Rupp would get used instead of Dupuis on the first line

    I completely agree. Rupp would give that first line the extra grit and forechecker to take time and space that it's missing without Kunitz in there. Dupuis can't do that...

    On the other hand, Dupuis on thd 4th line gives that line some speed and a little more touch.

    It makes too much sense to me and when that happens, we normally don't see it on the ice.

    I'm slightly worried that we couldn't score 5 on 5 against a bad flyers team and defense and Ray Emery. It's very very rare our YP scores 2 goals in a game to bail the team out.

    Thanks for the Lines!

    Anytime... yeah, and I'm not all that sure, but when Rupp was scoring, he was on Sid's line... accidental or not, I am sure most of his goals were there, so why not, both Dupuis and Rupp haven't scored in awhile, and Rupp I believe is faster then he looks, and I just think that he makes more sense, as you said brings grit, and makes more room out there, and as you said in another thread, what does Dupuis have... Speed.. beyond that, his hands aren't all that great, he usually bounces off players when he checks, his passing isn't the best, no toughness, his speed might help a bit with d-fence, being it gets him back into play quicker... Oh well, I'm also biased, because I'm a Rupp fan... hell he lives like 20 mins from me.

    We need MAF real bad right now. And I hope we get the MAF that shines like hes trying to make a point.
    ďItís a game of emotion, itís a game of hard work.
    Itís a game of passion, Kovalchuk, what he did the other day Ė thereís not one guy who was close to doing something. Maybe Maxime Talbot at the end with one second left. Hes about 5ft8 pfft"

    I wish Dupuis would just get cut...

    I noticed no Jeffery, is he a healthy scratch or did they return him to WBS?
    The only player in the NHL more overpaid than MAF is Jordan Staal
