The Penguins’ Captain, Sidney Crosby, continues to shine in the hockey world with a League-leading 38 points. He’s also fifth in League scoring, but don’t let that fool you. He is offensive machine that the Sharks need to keep an eye on.
With the absence of Alternate Captain and line mate Evgeni Malkin, the Pens will be looking at James Neal to step up as Malkin’s replacement. Don’t take him lightly, though, as he still has 9 goals in 11 games after being injured in the Pens’ Oct. 3rd season opener and missing more than a month.
Forwards – TBD
Deryk Engelland – Brooks Orpik
Olli Maatta – Kris Letang
Simon Despres – Matt Niskanen
Marc-Andre Fleury (confirmed starter)
