Second "A" Confirmed

The Pittsburgh Penguins webpage noted that both Evgeni Malkin and Brooks Orpik wore an "A" on their jerseys at the Jokerit game today.

This confirms that Brooks Orpik is the second alternate captain for the Penguins; we have yet to find out if it will / will not be on a rotational basis -- I'm thinking not (as does Rob Rossi - whose wildest dreams have come true today)!!

Another game note, it was posted that Paul Bissonnette would be scratched from today's game; however, the webpage also notes that he played on the 4th line (to replace Pesonen who replaced Petr Sykora on the 2nd line).
