As expected, defensemen Brooks Orpik (groin) and Zbynek Michalek (shoulder) have been ruled out for tonight's game against the Toronto Maple Leafs. Forward Mike Comrie (unknown) will be a game-time decision whether or not he can play. If he can not, tough guy Eric Godard will be in the lineup for the first time in the 2010-11 season.
Expected lines tonight:
Chris Kunitz - Sidney Crosby - Pascal Dupuis
Eric Tangradi - Mark Letestu - Evgeni Malkin
Matt Cooke - Maxime Talbot - Tyler Kennedy
Mike Rupp - Craig Adams - Eric Godard
Paul Martin / Kris Letang
Alex Goligoski / Ben Lovejoy
Andrew Hutchinson / Deryk Engelland
In goal, Marc-Andre Fleury is expected to start.
