    Default Pens call up 4

    With a list of injured players that seemingly grows by the game, the Penguins are turning to some AHL veterans and prospects for depth.

    Four forwards were recalled from AHL affiliate Wilkes-Barre/Scranton today, as the Penguins are set to play Los Angeles tonight at Consol Energy Center.

    Promising winger Nick Johnson leads the group. His 10 power-play goals have helped him post a Baby Penguins-leading 20 markers.

    Johnson is tied with fellow recall Brett Sterling for the Baby Penguins’ lead with 39 points.

    Veteran Ryan Craig, third on the Baby Penguins with 33 points, and Joe Vitale, with a plus-12 rating and 27 points, were also recalled. Vitale has never played an NHL game.

    The Penguins are playing without centers Sidney Crosby (concussion), Evgeni Malkin (right knee) and Mark Letestu (left knee), who have combined for 57 goals. Right wing Arron Asham (upper body) and left wing Chris Kunitz (lower body) are also injured, and left wing Matt Cooke is suspended for four games. Those three players have combined for 32 goals.

    That blog I posted yesterday looks like guessed right. I think that's a full line from WBS which will probably stay the same here tonight. Interesting.

    Maybe some new blood will give them some life. The last two games they've been like the walking dead.

    I like Johnson when he was up last year.

    J/K. ...It really makes no sense to split them up.
