at this morning's practice, Satan skated with Malkin and Fedotenko, but Bylsma said that the lines will more than likely be shuffled around like they were during last game:
"Like our last game, you'll see different looks from our lines on different occasions throughout the game," Bylsma said. "You'll see Miro (with Malkin and Fedotenko) a little bit, but you'll also see different combinations with Evgeni."PETR SYKORA / MIROSLAV SATAN
Penguins webpage is reporting that Satan will replace Sykora in tonight's lineup against the Flyers for Game #5 (this is a shocker to me -- and it sounds like it was to Sykie too - see quote below!)
"I"m not playing," he said. "I'm surprised. He told me right before practice that I'm not playing."
And Bylsma on his decision to make the Sykora-Satan switch:"It's a decision the coach gets to make. We feel like this will give us a better chance in certain circumstances, to get a different look. Miro is going to get that opportunity tonight to go in there and play some meaningful minutes for us."
Letang suffered an injury late in Game #4 and will be a game-time decision tonight (is anyone else surprised by this too? I didn't realize he was injured); if he's unable to play, Philippe Boucher will take his place.
