Morning Skate Update: 3/12

by Sam Kasan / Pittsburgh Penguins
Penguins forward Petr Sykora will miss his third straight game with an undisclosed injury when Pittsburgh takes on the Columbus Blue Jackets at Nationwide Arena Thursday at 7 p.m.

Sykora, who skated before the team's morning skate, is listed as day-to-day.

Meanwhile, goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury looks to hit two milestones in his 17th straight start in net for the Penguins. A victory for Fleury will give him a career-high eight consecutive wins and move the netminder into second place on the Penguins' all-time wins list (currently tied, Ken Wregget, 104).

The line combinations for tonight will be:
Bill Guerin-Sidney Crosby-Chris Kunitz
Pascal Dupuis-Evgeni Malkin-Ruslan Fedotenko
Tyler Kennedy-Jordan Staal-Matt Cooke
Craig Adams-Maxime Talbot-Eric Godard

The defensive pairings will be:
Brooks Orpik-Sergei Gonchar
Kris Letang-Mark Eaton
Hal Gill-Rob Scuderi
