LIVE STREAM of Tonight's Game

The Penguins played with new defensive pairings at Wednesday's morning skate. Brooks Orpik remains with Kris Letang which has proved to be a solid defensive force.

Orpik - Letang
Rob Scuderi - Alex Goligoski
Hal Gill - Philippe Boucher

Previously Gill and Scuderi were together, as were Goligoski and Boucher.

Sabourin will be in goal again tonight against the New York Islanders for the fourth straight game. He will also be wearing a brand new goalie mask which features a pair of frogs.

“We always get a new one at the beginning of the season,” Sabourin said. “I just got a new one now because they were late a little bit. That’s the only reason why I got it now.”

“It’s a joke in the dressing room because we’re French,” Sabourin said. “I don’t know all the stories about the French and the frog but we always joke about it. It’s good to include that on my mask.”

NOTE: these ARE NOT the frogs that are on Sabourin's mask!
