Penguins' Wednesday morning skate

UPDATE: Coach Michel Therrien said that Sergei Gonchar, who was injured in Game 5 and only skated one shift in the overtimes, "should be all right to play tonight."


The Penguins are on the ice at Mellon Arena with no absences. They're working out of the same lines they've been using ...


Take note, however, that coach Michel Therrien really juggled those combinations in Detroit for Game 5. He often put Staal on the right side with Hall in the middle and he continued to work Roberts in and out of the top three lines.

The Pens' lines won't likely be as juggled as in the last game because of home-ice advantage. But I think Therrien was also doing that to get players like Staal more opportunity, so we could still see some juggling tonight.
