TOP Penguin Players Will Not Participate in Tonight's Game

Rob Rossi of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports that alot of the top Penguin players will not be in the lineup of tonight's second pre-season game against Tampa Bay.

As previously mentioned, some of the more notable players making the trip and playing are defensemen Hal Gill, Mark Eaton and Kris Letang as well as forward Max Talbot.

Rossi also reports that former Pittsburgh Penguin players Ryan Malone and Michel Ouellet are expected to play in tonight's game. This will be the first time that Malone will face his former Penguins team, but we fans are undoubtedly anxious for the December 23rd meeting against the Lightning at the Mellon Arena so that we can see the Penguins play against former Penguin players for ourselves, especially since tonight's game will not be aired on radio or television.
