Couldn’t stop the run (that Dudek kid’s something). Couldn’t make a big play on offense. Ah well. Still tied for first. (To which my father said something about how if they played like this again, it wouldn’t be for long.)
Oh, wait. Hockey. Tanner Fritz is reported day-to-day, so Josh Holmstrom gets back in, reuniting that line that was so good against Hartford last weekend. Fritz’s absence shuffles the other two lines just a bit. Kristers Gudlevskis, on rotation.
Ryan Haggerty makes his season debut for the Penguins.
