|Tonight's game is at the Norfolk Scope at 7:15 p.m. EST|
Big news just announced as Pittsburgh recalls defensemen Robert Bortuzzo and Alexandre Picard. This leaves the AHL Penguins with Carl Sneep, Simon Despres, Joey Mormina, Philip Samuelsson, Cody Wild and Alex Grant on the blue line tonight.
With a paper thin and young defensive core tonight it is going to be important for the forwards to get back and help out, while also providing some early offense against the probable Admiral starter - Dustin Tokarski. Scott Munroe will get the start in net tonight for the Penguins.
As for the Penguins, they are coming off a 3-2 win over the Binghamton Senators up in New York. That win snapped a five game streak without a "W" while also improving the Pens' road record to 9-1-0-2. Hopefully they can get win #10 on the road tonight.
