EDIT: Malkin is out tonight.
That means we won't see a repeat of this:
n Columbus, the invasion is beginning.
We're told that Charlie has already made a few appearances in Columbus.
Columbus should be in the East. Pens/Jackets would turn into quite the rivalry.
We mentioned it earlier, but Talbot will play tonight.
He had a bruised foot, but should be okay.
The Pens haven't lost in regulation in 11 games.
Sidney Crosby owns the world.
Fleury's got his groove back.
But they can't look past the Jackets.
It should be a battle.
Guessing at the Pens' lines without Geno:
Chris Kunitz - Sidney Crosby - Pascal Dupuis
Matt Cooke - Max Talbot - Arron Asham
Chris Conner - Mark Letestu - Tyler Kennedy
Mike Rupp - Craig Adams - Eric Godard
Brooks Orpik - Kris Letang
Paul Martin - Zbynek Michalek
Alex Goligoski - Deryk Engelland
Blue Jackets' lines from Hockey Utopia:
Rick Nash - Derick Brassard - Jakub VoracekDerek Dorsett - Antoine Vermette - R.J. UmbergerEthan Moreau - Samuel Pahlsson - Chris ClarkDerek MacKenzie - Kyle Wilson - Jared BollJan Hejda - Anton StralmanFedor Tyutin - Rostislav KleslaKris Russell - Mike CommodoreSteve Mason
Bring the chaos to Columbus.
