    Default Lines Reconfigured; Letestu called up

    Penguins recall forward, reconfigure lines
    Friday, October 30, 2009
    By Dave Molinari, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

    COLUMBUS, Ohio -- The Penguins are recalling forward Mark Letestu from their farm team in Wilkes-Barre.

    Letestu, who is a 5 foot 11, 195-pound center, has two goals and three assists in four games with their American Hockey League affiliate in Wilkes-Barre this season.

    Letestu's recall is expected to be announced after he arrives from Winnipeg, where the Baby Penguins will play the second of two games against the Manitoba Moose tonight.

    Letestu is not scheduled to play when the Penguins face the Blue Jackets at Nationwide Arena here tonight, since he would be their 13th forward.

    Injuries to Evgeni Malkin (shoulder) and Tyler Kennedy (undisclosed) have forced coach Dan Bylsma to reconfigure his forward lines and, after today's game-day skate, he divulged a few of the combinations he plans to use this evening.

    Bylsma said the Chris Kunitz-Sidney Crosby-Bill Guerin line will remain intact, and that Jordan Staal will play between Ruslan Fedotenko and Chris Bourque on the No. 2 unit.

    Matt Cooke and Craig Adams will be fixtures on the third line, Bylsma said, with the other winger changing throughout the game. The Penguins' other four forwards are Pascal Dupuis, Mike Rupp, Eric Godard and Chris Conner.

    While he's definately not the answer to all of our problems, he got a helper the other night and looked a bit more comfortable out there. IMO, it could be worse...it could be Dupuis.

    Let's hope that their plan without these injured players is to play strong and well defensively and pay close attention to detail defensively, cause we shouldn't be outscoring many or any if the defense isn't there

    Yeah the thing about tonights game... Columbus has a decent offense but man is their D and goalie work this year been pretty bad. Keep the BJ's off the ascre sheet with a strongt defensive game and find whatever offense you can from Sid and the rest and that should be enough
