Penguins Reveal Lines For Major Game Against Kraken



Tonight the Penguins will look to keep things steady after a win the other night. Despite injuries to key forwards the Penguins have a strong lineup featuring a couple of young players looking to step up.

Up front the Penguins look like this:


Reilly Smith – Sidney Crosby – Rickard Rakell
Drew O'Connor – Evgeni Malkin – Valtteri Puustinen
Emil Bemstrom – Lars Eller – Jesse Puljujarvi
Jansen Harkins – Noel Acciari – Jeff Carter

Sidney Crosby gets a pair of veterans on his wings with Rielly Smith and Rickard Rakell. Evgeni Malkin gets the babysitting duty with a pair of young forwards who have broken out this season in Drew O'Connor and Valtteri Puustinen.

The third line features two relative newcomers in Emil Bemstrom and Jesse Puljujarvi centered by lineup staple Lars Eller. Finally the fourth line is comprised of wingers Jansen Harkins and Jeff Carter centered by Noel Acciari.

On defense, the Penguins bring an identical look to their lineup in their most recent win.

P.O. Joseph – Kris Letang
Marcus Pettersson – Erik Karlsson
Ryan Graves – Chad Ruhwedel

The Letang and Joseph pair will likely carry the load tonight. Erik Karlsson will have his usual offensive-leaning role alongside Marcus Pettersson. Meanwhile, Ryan Graves will continue to try and find his game on a pair with veteran Penguin Chad Ruhwedel.

The Penguins continue a stretch of games that feel like a must-win as they look to claw their way back into a playoff spot. If the Penguins are going to pull out a win tonight look for the young new additions to the lineup to be key contributors tonight.
