    #Pens wearing colored jerseys today. D'Agostini filling in for Kunitz. Black: 22-87-9; White: 36-71-59; Blue: 15-16-27; Yellow: 19-17-46-5.

    I don't know who #19 is, but I bet he'll look great on the 4th line while 15/27 remain on the 3rd line.

    Looks vaguely familiar. :laugh:

    Sure hope it's just a maintenance day for Kunitz, though.

    This makes my soul hurt. I'm hoping it's just to ease Beau back into practice...

    If Kunitz was actually going to miss the game, I'd imagine they'd put someone they actually think would play on that line for the game, i.e., not D'Agostini, and on his off-wing, no less.

    Could it be simply one of those "maintenance day" players get from time to time

    Pretty light week ahead for the Pens

    Bylsma: Neal skated on his own. Bennett resumed practicing. Kunitz had a maintenance day.

    Neal skated on his own? Does that mean he didn't need the little penguin anymore? That's good, then.

    The problem isn't that he might not need it, at this point, it's that he's dependent on it.

    Its ok. He's a cyborg anyway. They'll just replace that arm with another.

    Unfortunately his programming has an unfixable bug in it forcing him to make ill advised passes. Apparently the government created it and the healthcare website at the same time.

    It probably took the whole 45 minutes for Letang to make a pass that Geno could actually one-time. :sarcasm:

    I'm not even sure that the sarcasm smiley is needed there. Good to see them recognizing the issue.

    Ha ... this is good. Very good. Well, not the arm falling off, but staying on the ice so long after practice to do more practice. Not the first time Sid has stayed over to work with Letang on his shot, but glad to see Geno there as well.

    Progress. In 5 years it will only take him 5 minutes.

    I doubt we'll see an improvement in Letang's passing ability to Malkin for that one timer.

    As long as there are reflective surfaces, Letang will never be fully focused on the game at hand.

    I think I recall Despres being better at it last year.
