The Penguins recalled forwards Jeff Taffe and Ryan Stone to fill the void left by the injuries. The line combinations used at Thursday's morning skate were: Pascal Dupuis-Sidney Crosby-Miroslav Satan; Ruslan Fedotenko-Evgeni Malkin-Petr Sykora; Tim Wallace-Jordan Staal-Matt Cooke; Stone-Taffe-Eric Godard.

The defensive pairings were: Brooks Orpik-Rob Scuderi; Mark Eaton-Kris Letang; Alex Goligoski-Philippe Boucher. Marc-Andre Fleury will start in goal.
