GAME INFO: Preseason Game 7
Where: CONSOL Energy Center
When: Wednesday, 7 p.m.
TV: None (streaming on Penguins.com locally)
Radio: 105.9 the X

Key Players: Pascal Dupuis, Nick Bonino, Beau Bennett, Daniel Sprong, Sergei Gonchar, David Perron, Kris Letang, Phil Kessel and Sidney Crosby. The Red Wings will dress Petr Mrazek, Justin Abdelkader, Riley Sheahan, Luke Glendening and Johan Franzen.

What to Watch For: Judging from the morning skate lines, you’ll see Perron on the top unit with Crosby and Kessel. Head coach Mike Johnston has pointed out Perron’s conditioning and play as standing out during training camp. Tonight’s game will be a big one for Gonchar too, as he tries to earn his place on the team. It could be a make-or-break contest for his future.
