[UPDATED] Game Day Update

FREE -- LIVE Stream of the Game Tonight -- FREE

[UPDATE] the Penguins webpage has announced that CROSBY WILL PLAY TONIGHT!!
"I'm playing," Crosby said. "I'm not where I want to be but I'm close enough. I'm a little less sore."
Crosby left practice early yesterday with an undisclosed injury. It's still uncertain as to whether he'll be in the lineup tonight or not. A Pittsburgh news station reported that right now, there's a 50/50 chance he will play and it'll probably be up until right before the game before they will make the call as to whether Crosby plays or not.

Sabourin will make his third start in goal tonight for the Pens. I think it's a good move -- it keeps him "alert / on the ready" and allows Fleury some time to think about the last game (not that it was entirely his fault but one / two of the Oilers goals were "soff!")

According to the Penguins webgage, Malking and Sykora were the only two players that did not participate in the team's morning skate today.

NEW PROJECTED LINEUP (with Crosby back in the lineup; it would also depend on whether or not there was a real reason Malkin and Sykora left the morning skate early, i.e. - injury
