Pens follow up Crosby debut by facing Blues
PITTSBURGH -- Now, it's on to Game 2 of Sidney Crosby's comeback for the Pittsburgh Penguins.
 
The Penguins begin a stretch of three games in four days by playing the St. Louis Blues, who are 4-1-2 since former Stanley Cup-winning coach Ken Hitchcock was hired -- including a 3-2 loss at home to the Los Angeles Kings on Tuesday night. The Penguins remain at home Friday to play the Ottawa Senators, and then travel to Montreal on Saturday night.
 
Not surprisingly, given the Penguins' 5-0 victory over the New York Islanders on Monday, there are no lineup changes:
 
Chris Kunitz - Sidney Crosby - Pascal Dupuis
Steve Sullivan - Evgeni Malkin - James Neal
Matt Cooke - Jordan Staal - Tyler Kennedy
Arron Asham - Richard Park - Craig Adams
 
Paul Martin - Zbynek Michalek
Brooks Orpik - Kris Letang
Matt Niskanen - Deryk Engelland
 
Marc-Andre Fleury will be back in net after recording his second shutout of the season and the 21st of his career. Fleury is 7-1 at Consol Energy Center this season and is 2-2 with a 2.63 goals-against average in four career games against the Blues.
Quote of the Day

Obviously a lot happened in a short period of time. At the end of the day, considering everything I went through, I really felt close to my teammates and I really feel like what we accomplished, I know we didn't win it all. ... I'm really proud of how we got there and what we did once we got there.
